The individual works and eventually the entire series will be shown on a specifically designed urban screen situated at a platform of the U-Bahn Station Kochstrasse in Berlin, Germany. This central and historic location has always been significant as especially during the divide. Better known as Checkpoint Charlie it became a symbol of the Cold War, representing the separation of east and west, and — for some East Germans — a gateway to freedom.
