Where are people fleeing to, when they escape to Berlin? For two weeks the Gorki is providing over 30 international artists and activists with a platform to consider this question. In addition to artistic contributions, a daily programme of debates, films and other productions will address the borders that rip the populations of Berlin and Europe apart, in both visible and invisible ways.

White American Flags

Suddenly you see this steel poetry [...]. It puts everything to shame and makes you wonder what else we could have done that was so marvelous and so unpresumptuous. [...] He [John A. Roebling] really aspired to do something gorgeous. So it makes you feel that maybe you, too, could add something that would last and be beautiful.
(Arthur Miller in ”Brooklyn Bridge“ by Ken Burns, 1981)

On the night of July 21st to July 22nd Wermke/Leinkauf hoisted two hand-sewn white American flags on the towers of Brooklyn Bridge.
