Recycling the borders

Bernauer Street at the corner of Gartenstreet

Pendants of ordinary objects from the former East and West: vacuum cleaner, coal, plates, chairs, flower pots, lamps, etc.,plus fluorescent green thread
Karin Desmarowitz

At the "Bernauerstraße" border during the DDR regime human tragedies accured. I mark the former border line with fluorescent green tape. On both sides I put ordinary household objects found in recycling areas of both former East and West. I connect them by green thread stretched across the border line. This former "dead zone" is now a frequented subway station.
