Berlin’s border area following the fall of the Wall – spring/summer 1990. For many months, the photographer Bettina Flitner explored Berlin’s former “death strip”, the divided city’s border area that became a no-man’s land after the Wall came down in 1989. This is where she met people from both east and west and asked them, “What do you feel now?”
Among other places, the reportage appeared in the M Magazine No. 2, and will now be on display at Leica Fotografie International, Springeltwiete 4, 20099 Hamburg, from November 2 to 23, 2106.
The exhibition vernissage and an Artist Talk will take place on November 2, 2016, at 19:00.
