About this Event

You are invited to join the German Consulate General New York and 1014 Inc. to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Peaceful Revolution and the fall of the Berlin Wall with the exhibition:

PARALLEL WORLDS

By Stefan and Harf Zimmermann

Parallel Worlds presents the work of Stefan Roloff, a German-American artist born in West Berlin, and Harf Zimmermann, a German photographer born in Dresden who grew up in East Berlin, together for the first time in the United States. The exhibition deals with the fear instilled by the physical presence of the Berlin Wall, as cultivated by the wall-regime (Roloff) and the regime‘s inner pettiness and internalized fearfulness (Zimmermann). Living on opposite sides of the Berlin Wall, Roloff and Zimmermann spent most of their lives not knowing about each other’s work or existence.

Opening remarks

Hon. David Gill, German Consul General in New York,

Ms. Elisabeth Biondi, Independent Curator, Writer and Teacher, New York, former Visuals Editor, The New Yorker, 1996-2011
