The installation Monoliths by Malte Kebbel consists of original segments of the Berlin Wall, those constitute a non-limited, luminous and reflective place, which instead of its original linear-separating purpose now creates a space of luminous effect for gathering and contemplation.

An unlimited but still open place of thought reflection and meeting is created by light, luminescence, light reflections and monolithic concrete masses. The installation “Monoliths” opens up a luminous space of positive energy, which at the same time deals with the contradictory demarcation of real areas and theoretically boundless thoughts. Four original Berlin wall segments are coated with a luminescent and colored reflective epoxy resin as a flat 3D relief print. They are arranged in the constellation to an elementary stone circle. A programmed lightshow illuminates the light-sensitive installation by ultraviolet light and atmospheric blue light.

During the division of Germany, the Berlin Wall was a hermetic sealing system of the “German Democratic Republic” (DDR), which existed for more than 28 years, from 13 August 1961 to 9 November 1989.

Our approach is to define a place of gathering and contemplation instead of its original (linear) separation purpose.
