In 1989 Kai Wiedenhöfer photographed the fall of the Berlin Wall in his
hometown, and was deeply moved by this experience of history unfolding.
At the time, Wiedenhöfer, like many, believed this event would mark
the end of walls being employed as political tools and dismissed them
as anachronistic instruments of division.

political and economic problems, but proof of human weakness, error and
our inability to communicate with one another.
