The thematic tour on the construction of the Berlin Wall explores the unique conditions of artistic expression in East Germany and traces the effects of the building of the Wall in 1961 on the life and work of Wolf Biermann. During these years of forced consolidation, Biermann was also banned from performing and forced to lose his citizenship in 1976.

Based on Wolf Biermann's biography, the complex history of divided Germany during the decades of division becomes clear. We strongly recommend that you combine your visit to Wolf Biermann: A Poet and Songwriter in Germany with a short tour of the Roads Not Taken exhibition.
