“BERLIN” – Tauentzienstrasse

The sculpture "BERLIN" was one of the sculptures unveiled on the occasion of the city's 750th anniversary in 1987.

The sculpture, designed by the artist couple Brigitte & Martin Matschinsky-Denninghoff consists of huge four steel tubes that extend upwards. Each tube is about two meters in diameter and meanders into the air. The ends seem to meet each other, but find no real connection.
The symbol of the proximity and isolation between the two sides of Berlin

The statue stands in the green median strip of the Tauentzienstrasse that connects the famous Gedächtniskirche with the equally famous KDW – Kaufhaus des Westens
After the Wall was dismantled and the original lease expired, the sculpture was purchased by the city to commemorate this period in German history.
