Craig Havens at GSL Projekt, Berlin

Congrats to instructor Craig Havens, whose work is being featured as part of GSL Projekt in Berlin!

In the wake of the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, GSL Projekt and Zoopark present Mauer Mauer; an exhibition that pauses for thought and reflects upon our shared socio-political climates.

The wall here is cited as a metaphor for the multifaceted complexities that surround themes of division, segregation, reunification, freedom and liberation – all of which seem to be caught within cycles of disintegration, destruction, progression and regression. Circular narratives that are fraught with a populous of ambiguity and trepidation colliding with moments of hope and glimpses of change.
