He only feels the black and white of it

Steffi Klenz
Berlin Wall, 14-07-1973
Steffi Klenz places a sequence of a 1973 archive press-photograph at the centre: a photograph of a damaged section of the Berlin Wall.

The Image pictures East German military guards and border policemen carrying out repair works at the wall. Previously West German civilians had attacked the wall in response to the sound of guns fired at fleeing East Germans.
Klenz made multiple screen printed images of the archive photo, each image different from the other and in turn created a  narrative of fragmented and reflective text that evolves around the figure of the artist's father.
