INVISIBLE BORDERS – BEIRUT, BERLIN

Invisible Borders – Beirut, Berlin” is a project about two cities that have a similar history of division, with a frontline in Beirut and a wall in Berlin. As a result of research and personal experience in both cities, the installation was devised by visual artist Andrea Monrás Zöller in collaboration with photographer and documentary filmmaker Alfonso Moral and set designer Miren Oller. Drawing on the parallels between the two cities’ diverse past, the installation also reflects upon the consequences that the conflicts have brought on the urban fabric and population in both places.

 

Memorial. What is the role of memory when one confronts a generation born after the cessation of division with the turbulent past they haven’t personally experienced? What common remnants, both physical and intangible, can be drawn out from both cities? Although very distinct, how similar are Berlin and Beirut when one takes a closer look at their physical, social and psychological wounds almost three decades after the end of an era? How may the bridge between both cities be further reinforced?

 

Immersive Multimedia. The installation will take place in a large room, a former germinating vessel, in the old malt house at Malzfabrik comprising a number of different elements. Together, the elements attempt to establish dialogue between different generations to exchange experiences and opinions about the former division of their city. Relying on multimedia to present a complete experience, visitors to the exhibition may expect to discover portraits of everyday individuals, interviews, video projections, archive documentation, sounds and words that attempt to bridge gaps the cities have on their own and with themselves respectively.
