In 1989 Kai Wiedenhofer photographed the fall of the Berlin Wall in his hometown. He was deeply moved by this experience of history unfolding, and at the time, like many, he believed this event would mark the end of walls being employed as political tools and dismissed them as anachronistic instruments of division. Over 20 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. "Confrontier" presents Wiedenhofer's project and expresses his conviction that walls are not solutions to today's political and economic problems, but proof of human weakness, error and our failure to communicate with one another.
