REFLEXION | NOIXELFER
The transformation of three wall segments of the Berlin wall
An art performance by 3Steps in Part of the River Tales Project
After an three quarters year planning time we started our REFLEXION | NOIXELFER Berlin wall project in august 13 this year. Since then lots of things happened in part of the project that we won’t withhold you.
. Three Berlin wall parts are used for our transformation process for the resolution of walls and borders. By symbolic imagery as well as experienced and palpable art performance the walls in our heads and also the real walls shall be shown that we can bring them down. The performance starts in our hometown Giessen which was used to be address for DDR-refugees and now Giessen absorbs refugees from the whole world. The Berlin wall parts shall be understand as medium for consisting walls between nations, folks and cultures as well as the walls in our minds. Aim of this is to tear the walls and to build bridges between humans of different origins and cultures. The first art performances are inspired by the content and the temporal reference of the German history like the Berlin wall. More performances will appear in the coming days and weeks.
According to the quote of the German philosopher Andreas Tenzer “The most bridges are built by the stones of fallen walls” we apply to the humans for a sustainable together.
