The Berlin Wall divided East and West Germany for nearly 30 years until its fall in 1989. East and West Germany only had limited opportunities to visit each other, even less for East and West Berliners. Families, friends and lovers were divided and many people tried to escape from East to West.
"If only you could be here..." is an exhibition telling three special love stories, between East and West Germans that took place in the shadow of the Berlin Wall. Three couples fell in love during the German division. Their stories, of love that defied a time of isolation and separation, were kept alive through letters. Here, in this exhibition you will have the opportunity to see Germany's Cold War history from a new and unexpected perspective. This is the story about devotion without borders, without walls, told in the words of the lovers themselves.
This exhibition is curated and produced by Nora Laraki with artworks by TAPE THAT
