Germany Pavilion at Venice Biennale 2018 features a black wall which unfolds as visitors walk in. The Unbuilding Walls exhibition responds to current debates on protectionism and explores the effects of division and the process of healing as a dynamic spatial phenomenon. On show how Berlin’s former border zone was transformed into culturally vibrant spaces and how people deal with ‘infamous’ border walls across the globe.
