Berlin Wall in Düsseldorf

Location: premises at the harbour

2 large pieces

 

Remex, a Duesseldorf based recycling firm, was involved in the demolition of the Berlin Wall. Beside two other firms, they were contracted by the German Ministry of Denfense. To commemorate this historic task, Remex took some segments home and stored them in its headquarter in Recklinghausen.

Out fo this fund, two segments came to Duesseldorf in 2008. The Duesseldorf-based artist Reimund Franke was commissioned to create a monument with the remains, which was set up finally at the entrance to the Remex site at Duesseldorf harbour.
