BOUVY~Kim – Niemandsland. Berlijn zonder de Muur / Berlin ohne die Mauer*
Author: Kim Bouvy, Cees Nootenboom et alii Publisher: De Verbeelding Publishers, Amsterdam Year: 2002 ISBN: 90-74159-53-2 Softcover, stiff wrappers, 160 pages., full color, German / Dutch / English. First edition of 1250 copies. Design: Claudia van Rouendal / Kim Bouvy. Condition: mint 'No man's land' I looked at the evolution of the landscape after the Berlin wall and its dominating ideology had disappeared. What had happened with the landscape where the wall once stood, 13 years after the fall of the Wall? How was this phenomenon and its physical remnants given a new meaning and what was on the one hand the point of view of the tourist and on the other that of the citizen ? With this project I wanted to investigate how the stereotypical imagery founded during the Cold War could still hold out in the heads of the people (Die Mauer im Kopf) even when the Cold War was over and the remnants out of (physical) sight. Could it be that people, and therefore photography, are blind for the somewhat dull and far less uncanny present?'
