‘The Wall’: A Panorama of the Divided City of Berlin

The Wall by Yadegar Asisi

Berlin gives you a chance to witness its divided history in the form of Yadegar Asisi’s panorama, The Wall. From my viewpoint on a four-meter platform, I was transported to a bleak, overcast day in the 1980s, witnessing intricate snapshots of life in a cleaved city on both sides of the graffitied wall.

The panorama depicts tired buildings, soldiers on patrol, people at work and home and the ominous “death strip.” At 15 meters high and 60 meters wide, the 270-degree panorama is cleverly crafted to provide a life-size impression from the viewing platform. It’s eerily realistic.
