Lines of Resistance

Informed by the narration of tour guides and visitors comments, Lines of Resistance explores their interaction with, and reactions to, the Berlin Wall Memorial.

The Memorial is a preserved section of the former wall, which until 25 years ago divided Germany in two, and remains to memorialise those who died trying to get from East to West. It presents a brutal and barren environment illustrating a bleak history, which is disrupted by the arrival of colourful, enthusiastic and intrigued tourists. This disjuncture, sometimes humorous, sometimes clumsy, forces us to question how we navigate, consume and reflect upon these sites of human tragedy.
