The LICHTGRENZE / The Border of Lights installation by Christopher Bauder and Marc Bauder, Berlin – Germany

November 10th, 2014 by retail design blog

From November 7th to 9th 2014, the inner city of Berlin will be temporarily divided from Bornholmer Strasse to Mauerpark and the Berlin Wall Memorial on Bernauer Strasse, past the Reichstag, the Brandenburg Gate and Checkpoint Charlie to the East Side Gallery: a light installation featuring 8,000 luminous white balloons commemorates the division of Berlin. Developed from an idea by Christopher Bauder and Marc Bauder, the installation’s emotional and visual power evokes the dimension and brutality of the Wall.

The re-imagining of the Wall through the LICHTGRENZE will be accompanied by numerous exhibitions, events, and guided tours. A new permanent exhibition will be opened at the Berlin Wall Memorial on Bernauer Strasse, and an open-air exhibition conceived by the Robert Havemann Society will be on view along the 15 km-long light installation: 100 Wall stories at the original sites where events took place.

Large format screens at selected public locations will show impressive film collages made from historic, often little-known footage of the time the Berlin Wall fell. Three of these public venues will also offer extensive guided tours courtesy of Museum Service Berlin. Rounding out the programme are a number of information pavilions and viewing towers offering particularly impressive views of the light installation.
