Title: “Unbuilding Walls”
Commissioner: Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community
Curator: Marianne Birthler, Lars Krückeberg, Wolfram Putz, Thomas Willemeit
The German Pavilion presents 28 urban and architectural projects which discuss about division and integration.
Some germans refer to February 5,2018 “Circle Day”, it’s the date that marks 28 years and almost 3 months since the fall of the Berlin Wall on November 9, 1989.
For the Venice Biennale exhibition “Unbuilding Walls”, curators Thomas Willemeit, Wolfram Putz, Lars Krückeberg, and Marianne Birthler inevitably take Germany’s reunification as a starting point, but they don’t miss to open up a broader, international perspective, for they address urgent questions of our time: nationalism, protectionism, and division.
