Searching for traces along the route of the Berlin Wall
The Swiss film-maker Dominique de Rivaz traced and photographed the original circular route of the Berlin Wall. The theme of her photographs is that which has now disappeared, or of which only fragments remain, demonstrating in the process the signs of new life. Absent and yet per manently present, the Wall still marks daily life in the fabric of the city.
