Eija-Riitta Berliner-Mauer, Who Married the Berlin Wall in 1979

9/20

Berliner-Mauer explains that she sees objects as living being she can communicate with in a now-defunct blog. Her feelings are both emotional and sexual, she says, and she is most attracted to large structures with parallel, horizontal lines, like bridges, railway tracks and fences.

She explains that her basis of attraction to the Berlin Wall is its construction, and has nothing to do with the Berlin Wall being a symbol of oppression and violence. "I am not interested in politics," she says.
