Undine Groeger | About Within Our Walls and Beyond

STORY

Within Our Walls and Beyond (WOWB) is a documentary photography, multimedia, and educational project deeply rooted in Undine Groeger's story, namely the transition she experienced as an East German after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. 

 

Founded in 2014 WOWB has been supported by the Permanent Mission of the Federal Republic of Germany to the United Nations and other International Organisations in Geneva, the Association pour des Lieux de Rencontre et de Cultures aux Grottes (ALRC) for its first exhibition and community event Berlin 25! in the light of the refugee crisis and the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. 


Since 2014 WOWB has been in partnership with CAUX-Initiatives of Change Foundation, Impact Hub Geneva, and the Centre des Arts at the International School of Geneva (Ecolint) in the framework of Le Festival des Créatives in 2016.


WOWB includes Undine Groeger's traveling photo exhibition: Within My Walls and Beyond, community events on the theme of walls, and a growing archive of testimonials on the Berlin Wall and other walls that persist in ourselves and our communities. #beyondourwalls
