The Wall

Berlin resident, Eun Sook Lee created Vanished Berlin Wall to commemorate the 1989 destruction of the infamous structure. The work of plastic textiles and light was installed in 2007 on the western side of the Brandenburg Gate, not far from where the original wall once stood.

Lee also hoped to call attention to the plight of her native Korea where many families currently suffer separations similar to those endured by East and West Germans throughout the tenure of the iconic cold war symbol.
