CONFRONTIER: WIEDENHOFER -- BORDERS, 1989-2012. {Title from cover}. Stefanie Rosenkranz. Steidl Verlag, Gottingen, 2013. 184 pp. (16 foldout) with 126 ills. (124 col.). 33 x 23 cm. ISBN 9783869305509 In English.
Publisher's description: In 1989 Kai Wiedenhofer photographed the fall of the Berlin Wall in his hometown, and was deeply moved by this experience of history unfolding. At the time, Wiedenhofer, like many, believed this event would mark the end of walls being employed as political tools and dismissed them as anachronistic instruments of division. Over twenty years later, history has proved us wrong; indeed walls have enjoyed a barbaric renaissance. Border barriers have been erected in the US, Europe, and the Middle East in the aftermath of political, economic, religious and ethnic conflicts. Wiedenhofer has documented walls in Belfast, Ceuta and Melilla, Baghdad, the Occupied Palestinian Territories, the American- Mexican border, Cyprus, Korea as well as the remains of the Iron Curtain. Confrontiers presents Wiedenhofer's comprehensive project and evidences his conviction that walls are not solutions to today's political and economic problems, but proof of human weakness, error and our inability to communicate with one another.
