Your Imaginary Country

The subject of this project is national and personal identity, and issues of immigration; of borders and restrictions. It is installed in the Mitte region of Berlin, very close to the original site of the Berlin Wall (1961-1989), which is referenced against contemporary issues in the southwest United States and the building of a new "wall." You are invited to participate online. Audience answers are shown online and in the installation space, 85 Choriner Strasse, Mitte, Berlin.

Online participation:

In section one, a comparison is made between general motivations for building the Berlin Wall, which is now a historical relic, and the motivations for building a new "wall," or fence, between the United States and Mexico. In both cases the walls contain or exclude border crossers and immigrants.

In section two, a discussion of these motivations is developed. You may submit anonymous answers to simple questions. There is a version in German, and one in English- answers are compared between Central Europe and the United States/Central America and also in an interactive projection/installation in the gallery space in Berlin. The gallery audience may also submit answers. All answers are anonymous, and are not used for any other purpose except reflection and dialogue.
