When I first saw Juan Margolles “No man’s land” I was not aware that these were photos of Berlin, but after reading his statement I was surprised to learn that indeed they were. “No man’s land” focuses on the portion of land next to the Berlin wall – the “border strip”, also known as Death Row or no man’s land. Since 1961 to 1989, 136 people died trying to cross it. Once an exclusion military zone – with watchtowers, fences with alarms and barbed wire. These days, only minimal parts of that history remain.
