Lichtgrenze, Berlin, Germany

Issue 82 December / January 2014 : Architectural : Transport

As part of the 25th anniversary celebrations of the fall of the Berlin Wall, temporary light installation ‘Lichtgrenze’ - meaning ‘The Border of Lights’ - was created, which followed the former route of the so-called Berliner Mauer.



Brothers Christopher and Marc Bauder conceived the idea of ‘Lichtgrenze’ in 2011, supported by the Robert-Havemann-Gesellschaft and developed with the help of Kulturprojekte Berlin.

For three days during November, the 15.3km frontier that once divided the city was re-imagined in light by thousands of illuminated balloons, developed and produced by WHITEvoid. Running through the centre of Berlin from Bornholmer Straße to the Oberbaumbrücke, the installation stretched past the Mauerpark, along the Berlin Wall memorial on Bernauer Straße through to the Brandenburg Gate, over Potsdamer Platz to Checkpoint Charlie and on to the East Side Gallery.
