Wall On Wall

One of my FB friends - Linda Ferrari from Photo Berlin - sent me a link to this intriguing project Wall On Wall by  Kai Wiedenhoefer. The project is meant to use the Berlin Wall as a space for exhibiting large format images Wiendenhoefer has made of other places - in this instance the border fence on the U.S.-Mexico border. There is a Kickstarter campaign under way to underwrite the enterprise.

It seems to me that this project prompts serious thought about a theme I have pursued here pretty regularly - the diverse political uses of walls, the nature of borders, the politics of distinction and difference. Keep an eye on it!
