Birgit Auf der Lauer/Caspar Pauli


Grenzfährservice II and Grenzfährservice III

Installation and City walk, 2015

The central theme of Auf der Lauer & Pauli’s two works is human trafficking past and present. For the Herbstsalon they have rendered their extensive research—amongst others along the Greek-Turkish border and into Berlin archives—as a city walking tour. During this tour reports and narratives are located in Berlin’s urban space in a temporal and spatial shift. Moreover a permanent audio-visual installation is shown in the exhibition space.

For 15 participants per walk only. Please ensure to be on time at the meeting point at the box office foyer, as advanced reservations cannot be made. The accruing public transportation costs of 3,20€ during the city walk are not included. Duration: 120 min.

Dramaturgy: Holger Kuhla
