About the Work

I made a videotape of the demolition of the Berlin Wall in November 1989. The video stills show the east on the left, the west on the right. West Germans wait to visit relatives and friends in, for them, the long lost east of the city. The East German border guards are still in place but now there is nothing for them to guard. It is a curious time in a curious place. On the top of the work I added 'Nie Wieder' - Never Again - and in the centre, an old copy of the Bible.

″I still use the same approach to my work: I get an idea, think of the title and then make the work. So not much has changed since 1964″
