The story of the Berlin Wall through akg-images’ collections

The story of the Berlin Wall through akg-images’ collections

9 November 2019 is the thirtieth anniversary of the collapse of the Berlin Wall.

At akg-images we believe that context shapes the meaning and interpretation of the world around us and is inseparable from the event or work of art.  

We invite you to view the political and cultural context of post-war Germany, the construction and the eventual fall of the Berlin Wall.

For more than 70 years, akg-images have been illustrating world's history and culture through art and photography. Today, our online collections of more than 4.5 million images provide a unique opportunity to put historical events and works of art into context by exploring the web of circumstances in which events took place and artwork was created.

Please visit our website to see the selection of images used in the presentation and to discover more.
