Clarissa Thieme @ RAUM FÜR ZWECKFREIHEIT, Berlin

Clarissa Thieme presents her new installation Nothing has been, nothing is together with her latest film The GDR never existed / Salute.
Both works deal with the final dissolution of the GDR by the reunification of Germany and examine them from different temporal perspectives. The Berlin Wall separated the Adalbertstraße right next to house number 71, where today the RAUM FÜR ZWECKFREIHEIT is located.

Clarissa Thieme is a media artist and filmmaker. In her work, she combines documentary and fictional elements to investigate processes of commemoration and identity building.
