The Berlin Wall has now existed outside of Germany as a monument for as long as it stood in Berlin as a barrier. It has become a “mobile ruin.” We are interested in how the meaning of this historical object shifts through time and place, using photography and video to explore the Wall in different cities, including Berlin, Montreal, N.Y., L.A. and Las Vegas. Given contemporary pressures to build new walls along borders, particularly between the U.S. and Mexico, we ask if we’ve forgotten the lessons of the Cold War?
