WARonWALL

- A photo exhibition on the Berlin Wall about the war in the Syria

Kai Wiedenhoefer has been photographing the war in Syria since 2012. He has focused on two issues: the wounded Syrians and the destruction of towns like Kobane. Seen together they stand as a symbol for the destruction of the whole country. The exhibition will raise understanding and awareness of the situation refugees face in their home country. WAR on WALL will bring the visual impact of the war to Berlin, making it’s experience both direct and personal. Kai gives the spectator an understanding of what war means for the individuals and their lives. It clearly demonstrates that Syrian refugees have no choice other than to leave their homes. Further, WAR on WALL aims to raise donations for the victims on an individual basis to help facilitate their healing process. Donations will go directly to our cooperation partner the Stern Foundation; money raised through a publication of the war victims photographs in Stern magazine has reached 80 000 euros already and now Rawan Oumri, 13, after being hit by a rocket, is able to walk again.

In 2016 the war in Syria entered its fifth year. A quarter of a million people have already been killed and more than one and a half million injured. Seven million have become internally displaced in their own country, and four million refugees have so far left Syria. In 2016 the war in Syria entered its fifth year. A quarter of a million people have already been killed and more than one and a half million injured. Seven million have become internally displaced in their own country, and four million refugees have so far left Syria.

The exhibition concept : In the center of Berlin, next to the Eastern Railway Station, we will mount 22 panoramas from Kobane and other destroyed Syrian cities along with 42 portraits of war wounded onto the last remaining section of the Berlin Wall. Each panorama printed to 9 x 3 meters will be flanked by two portraits printed to 3 x 2 meters. The band of pictures created will be interrupted by sheets of grey paper printed with a captions in German and English, which describes in detail the fate of the wounded people depicted. The total length of WAR on WALL exhibition will be about 360 meters. The other side of the wall is known as East Side Gallery and one of the touristic hotspots of Berlin. This means with the show up for three months in summer 2016 we will have about 3–400,000 visitors automatically. The exhibition will be open for free, to everybody, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for three months.

The pictures will cover 1080 sqm and are printed on blueback paper and than mounted on the wall with normal wallpaper glue. We have already mounted a similar show on the same place in 2013. At www.wallonwall.org you can get a good idea about how WARonWALL will look. We hope we can open the show between end of June and mid July.

Our target amount will be used for realizing the project.

The exhibition will be presented in cooperation with the Society for Humanistic Photographie (Gesellschaft für Humanistische Fotografie -GfHF) Cooperation partners and more info you can find in these links:
