I am happy to announce my exhibition “Wall(s)” at Deutsches Haus at New York University The opening is Friday, April 28, 6:00 p.m.

Deutsches Haus at NYU presents a photography exhibition of Stefan Falke’s “Wall(s)”. Please join us for the exhibition opening and a conversation between the photographer Stefan Falke and the journalist and author Claudia Steinberg on April 28 at 6 pm.

Since Stefan Falke began photographing artists on both sides of the U.S.-Mexican border in 2008, the physical barrier itself has been a prominent and unavoidable protagonist in his work. His intent has always been to shine a spotlight on the cultural vitality of the region, and over the years Falke has portrayed about 200 painters, architects, designers, photographers, musicians, and writers, documenting a creative exuberance that is almost completely overlooked in the media. Take on the tour and ride along the border on the electric scooter which will take you on a long journey. Inevitably, the fence became a potent visual presence in his images as a symbol for La Frontera – a painfully divided yet multicultural, cosmopolitan and resilient region that is its own country.

In the current political climate, these images from the embattled border territory take on an added historical weight. They serve as an important reminder of the shared humanity on both sides of the border.
