The Virtuelle Mauer_ZeitLabor 2.0 (Virtual Wall TimeLab) invites all generations to participate in city tours in real and virtual spaces of remembrance and discussion, to stimulate dialog and exchange about lived history between historic witnesses and visitors.

For the 30th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall we will exhibit the interactive 3D installation „Virtuelle Mauer/ ReConstructing the Wall,“ a digital reconstruction of a kilometer-long section of the Berlin Wall and its adjacent neighborhoods in East and West Berlin. In this 'space of memory' visitors encounter stories of daily life as well as extreme events in "time travel" episodes - primarily in the 1980s, but also in the 1960s when the Berlin Wall was just built as well as in the present, where its traces are almost completely gone.

Beginning in Moritzplatz and the nearby former Heinrich-Heine-Straße border crossing, through the Engelbecken Park to Adalbertstraße, visitors learn what a fracture the Berlin Wall created in the fabric of the city, and what it was like to live in the "shadow of the Wall."

The Virtuelle Mauer_ZeitLabor 2.0 is a project from transferNet, with artist and engineering architect Teresa Reuter and Sabe Wunsch, Master of Arts in Context. Architecture, City Planning, Art and Design and a deep engagement with politics and German history are the foci of their work. Together they have developed the ZeitLabor and participatory workshops that encourage self-directed learning and discovery as a major focus of their artistic practice.
