The previous sets were about the Stasi Remand Prison of the former GDR in East Berlin, which was closed soon after the Falling of the Berlin Wall. People were taken captive for political reasons only. The existence of such prison had always been denied and inmates were only set free if they didn’t talk to anybody about their imprisonment. And they wouldn’t have any idea, where they had been.
In order to hide the prison, companies related to the Stasi and the state were settled around it. To make it completely invisible, the whole complex became a restricted area.
In January of 2010 I took off, to look for the remaining traces of those times.
