For years it was the most terrifying symbol of the World War, and its fall signified a new era of freedom for Germany and indeed the World. Now, the Goethe - Institute hosts the exhibition Virtually Mauer/ReConstructing the Wall - an Interactive 3D installation which will be opened in the presence of the artist Tamiko Thiel on January 7.
Through a virtual reality art work created by the German and American multi media artists Tamiko Thiel and Teresa Reuter you can get to know how it was like living in Berlin with the wall that separated the East from the West part of the city.
The Goethe Institute invites the public to walk along the "Virtual Wall" in the Goethe - Hall in Colombo.
Tamiko Thiel is an American VR (virtual reality) artist, internationally known for her use of VR technology to create socially critical artworks: Teresa Reuter is a Berlin architect and 3D artist with metroGap - Association for Urban Theory and Practice. Her work is influenced by years of experience dealing with the urban development of Berlin.
