In the year after the fall of the Berlin Wall during the night of November 9, 1989, Barbara Weiss deployed an image of people celebrating on top of the now defunct barrier for an ad in the Frankfurt-based journal Wolkenkratzer. In subsequent years, artists whose countries of origin were dispersed across the former Iron Curtain, from Finland and the Baltic to Berlin and further via Romania, the Ukraine and Turkey, became an integral part of the gallery’s program.
