Eine Mauer verschwindet [A Wall Vanishes]

£9.99

Product description

Der Taumel bei der Mauer-Öffnung wurde tausendfach in Jubel-Bildern festgehalten. Henning Langenheim erkennt die sofort eintretende Medialisierung des Geschehens und benutzt eine fast filmische Technik, Medienvertreter, Mauerspechte, Postkartenverkauf und Aufräumarbeiten ins Verhältnis zu stellen. Aber wie verschwand die Mauer, die heute fast völlig im Berliner Stadtbild fehlt? Dafür benutzte der Autor Mehrfachbelichtungen, um Aufbrechen der Mauer und das nächtliche Wegräumen zu erfassen. In einem einzigen Bild wird ein Mauersegment erfasst, gekippt, angehoben und zu Boden gebracht; die ehemaligen Grenzwächter stehen als Schemen daneben. Hier dokumentierte kein Journalist, sondern ein Künstler nutzte seine Sensibilität, den Kern des ungeheuerlichen Vorgangs, nämlich das Verschwinden eines Staates, metaphorisch zu erfassen.

Google translation

The tumult at the wall opening was recorded thousands of times in cheers pictures. Henning Langenheim recognizes the immediate onset of medialisation of events and uses an almost cinematic technique to put media representatives, wall woodpeckers, postcard sales and cleanup in relation. But how did the wall disappear, which today is almost completely missing in Berlin's cityscape? For this purpose, the author used multiple exposures to capture the breaking of the wall and the night-time clearing away. In a single image, a wall segment is detected, tilted, lifted and brought to the ground; the former frontier guards stand aside as schemas. Here, no journalist documented, but an artist used his sensitivity, the core of the monstrous process, namely the disappearance of a state to capture metaphorically.

Black and white photographs and text is in English and German.

Very good condition.
