Thanks to her Erasmus experience in Ireland but also from having served the European Voluntary Service in Barcelona, Alexandra has frequently travelled around Europe. She meets with Roman Kroke, an artist from Berlin, on the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall.
The Berlin wall reminds us about the Cold War and stands as symbol of a divided Europe. The fall of the wall gave way to an enlargement of the European Union towards central European countries. But what role does the wall assume today? Roman has studied the walls that exist within every one of us (e.g. prejudices and stereotypes surrounding culture, people and different religions), as they might be the premise to the exterior ones… Alexandra and Roman have participated in a European film project produced in the memory of the Nazi victims. A projected carried out with support from the European Commission / ”Europe for Citizens” programme.
