For the first time the complete project ‘Berlin’s Covered History’ will be exhibited. This project looks at the history of the European continent with which one is unavoidably confronted in Berlin. Through image and title, De Jong links specific sites in today’s Berlin spots with historical events that took place in the last century. Events during WW II and during the period of separation of East and West Berlin. Besides ‘Moldova’s Water’ will be shown. A search for water in Moldova, Europe’s forgotten, and poorest country.
