From November 7th to 9th 2014, the inner city of Berlin was temporarily divided from Bornholmer Strasse to Mauerpark and the Berlin Wall Memorial on Bernauer Strasse, past the Reichstag, the Brandenburg Gate and Checkpoint Charlie to the East Side Gallery: a light installation featuring 8,000 luminous white balloons commemorated the division of Berlin. Developed by Christopher Bauder and Marc Bauder, the installation’s emotional and visual power evoked the dimension and brutality of the Wall.

Large format screens at selected public locations showed the impressive film collages MAUERSTÜCKE by Marc Bauder made from historic, often little-known archive footage. 

"A shining and delicate symbol of peace and light, in stark contrast to the brutality of the heavy slabs of grey concrete."  BBC
