30 Years After the Fall of the Berlin Wall, East German Art Gets Its Due
“Point of No Return,” an exhibition marking the anniversary, shows that not all artists celebrated the historic events of 1989.
Many of the artworks of this era address a feeling of entrapment and desperation to escape. A 1984 work by Stefan Plenkers, Boat Cemetery, depicts a beach strewn with fragments of boats and the heads of two people with their backs turned to the viewer, as tho… [+924 chars]
