The Walther Collection presents a project by photographer Arwed Messmer and writer Annett Gröschner on view through April 2020.

The German Consulate General Recommends:

The Walther Collection is pleased to present Taking Stock of Power: An Other View of the Berlin Wall, a project developed by photographer Arwed Messmer (b. 1964) and writer Annett Gröschner (b. 1964), both based in Berlin, following several years of collaborative research. The exhibition's centerpiece is the artists' remarkable photo-reconstruction, presented in 12 large-format bound books, of the entire 160km of the Berlin Wall as it appeared in 1966. Debuting during the 30th anniversary year of the fall of the Wall, the exhibition recalls the brutality of the Wall’s physical reality and political symbolism, which today resonate anew.

Location and time:

The Walther Collection Project Space,
New York, December 2019–April 2020
The Walther Collection is located at 526 West 26th Street, Suite 718 and is open to the public Wednesday-Saturday, 12-6pm.
