100 Marks - Berlin 2019
Thirty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall (9 November 1989), photographer Tommaso Bonaventura presents his artistic project 100 marchi – Berlino 2019, in collaboration with curator Elisa Del Prete.
Tommaso Bonaventura – 100 marchi – Berlino 2019 (100 Marks - Berlin 2019) is an artistic project by the photographer Tommaso Bonaventura, developed in collaboration with the curator Elisa Del Prete, marking the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall (9 November 1989). The exhibition tells the story of the Begrüßungsgeld, the ‘welcome money’ which from 1970 to December 1989 was given to citizens of the DDR on entering West Germany for the first time. This vicissitude provides food for thought on an epochal change, starting from a stance that favours private, family stories, expressed through a two-sided narrative: both photographic and video.
The exhibition is the upshot of collaboration between various institutions and will tour between various venues: in Turin, in Trento, and at San Vito al Tagliamento.
