THE WALL - asisi Panorama Berlin

THE WALL - asisi Panorama Berlin

The large Panorama wall of the artist Yadegar Asisi visualizes the daily life next to the Berlin wall on a fictitious autumn day in the 1980s.


The Asisi Panorama THE WALL can be found right at the historic place Checkpoint Charlie. It has a size of 900 square meters and can’t be missed while walking in Friedrichstraße. It gives a view of the wall from the districts Kreuzberg to Mitte on a fictitious autumn day in the 1980s. From the visitors platform the direction of sight is above the death strip, the border fortification and the wall. You can watch Berliners in their daily life. Capitalism and Communism just a few meters apart, alternative scene on the West and petting zoo on the East Side – just separated by the wall. On one hand trivial stories, on the other hand a cruel background.

Before you enter the Panorama hundreds of photographs from contemporary witnesses are introducing the project. In the background you can listen to music which is well coordinated to the time back when Berlin was split.

No matter if you were born before the collapse of the wall or after, it is an unusual travel through time when the reality on this place on earth was so different compared to today.
