On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, our new Connecting Cities partner, Streaming Museum in New York, will present the video ‘Breakthrough’ (1990), by artist Edwina Sandys, at the subway station Friedrichstraße in Berlin on Sunday, 9th November 2014 at the U-Bahn-Station Friedrichstraße in Berlin. In cooperation with WALL ‘Breackthrough’ will be shown every ten minutes.
‘Breakthrough’ is a monumental historic work, which was created from 8 Berlin Wall panels, and historical imagery and background, in a version for public screens, commemorating the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. ‘Breakthrough’ opened in Piazza Duomo, Milan, Italy, on November 7, 2009 as a centerpiece of the city’s celebration which was viewed live via Piazza Duomo’s webcam. It toured the museum’s network of public spaces worldwide.
