Reconstructing the Wall which once divided Berlin into two political worlds

The Berlin Wall. During the decades of the Cold War, the Berlin Wall was a symbol of repression and of the "schism" of Germany, Europe and indeed the entire world into two politically opposite systems (PresseBox) ( Berg, )
Berlin located artist team to reconstruct the Berlin Wall / The wall as a VR -Virtual Reality - artwork shall make people experience the historical meaning of the building / Bitmanagement provides the project with the interactive 3d software / First presentation to take place in Summer 2008 / Project evaluated as an integrated part of the memorial concept of the Berlin Senate Berg, near Munich. The Berlin Artist Team T+T has reconstructed the legendary Berlin Wall to conserve the reminiscence of the wall as an artwork for time witnesses and following generations. The wall was constructed August 13, 1961 and demolished November 9,1991. However, no stones have been worked up, the copy has rather been realized with 3d visualization technology which makes it possible to watch it on each current PC. The software to this project was provided by the 3D Software supplier Bitmanagement Software GmbH, Berg near Munich, Germany. The intention of the artist team was and still is to contribute to experience the Berlin Wall in a historical context.

In the reality the tracks of the Berlin Wall have been long disappeared, but not in the hearts of people. So it's not a surprise that visitors from home and abroad, and even Berlin citizens, increasingly put the question "where's been the legendary wall located?" It shows, the wall in fact is still present with the people. The answer on the question will give the first presentation this summer, which will be shown on a life-sized computer aided silver screen (3m/4m in size).

By presenting the VR-artwork the intention of the artists is to attract the sensual and physical perception of the human beings. Using an easy to handle joystick every visitor can move through the interactive 3D-world of the VR-artwork. In August 2008 a presentation will take place in the museum for Communication in Berlin and in the Center of Documentation "Berlin Wall in the Bernauer Street". Further events are scheduled in Germany and abroad.
