walking westwall

12 of us plus designer and artist friends from belgium, rumania and the netherland did an art performance as part of the city of Aachen's across the borders festival. The Walking Siegfried Line. Luckily overcome in minutes by the Allies, the Westwall is one of the most obscure WW II borders. It's a very visual and physical barrier, but on foot you can walk through it without hesitation. We'll make it block the city's shopping streets. It's all about barriers in our heads.
