History tends to dominate most visits to Berlin, but if you’re interested in a slightly different perspective on the former East-West divide then take the opportunity to visit The Wall panorama by Yadegar Asisi next to Checkpoint Charlie. Asisi is renowned for his immersive and gigantic wraparound landscapes that place viewers inside the picture. The attention to detail draws the viewer into every aspect of the world they depict. Here he represents a large-as-life scene of the Berlin Wall in the 1980s from the West Berlin side, where different characters, sounds and lighting bring the scene to life.
