English Berlin (sculpture)

Berlin is a sculpture on the Tauentzienstraße in Berlin, the capital of Germany. First conceived in 1985 and unveiled by the husband-and-wife sculpting team of Brigitte Matschinsky-Denninghoff and Martin Matschinsky in 1987, the sculpture's principal motif, a "broken chain", was meant to symbolize the severed connections between West and East Berlin due to the construction of the Berlin Wall. After the Wall was dismantled, the sculpture was bought by the city from Matschinsky-Denninghoff to commemorate this period in German history.

Italian Berlin (scultura)

Berlin è il nome di una scultura realizzata nel 1987 da Brigitte Matschinsky-Denninghoff e Martin Matschinsky e posta nel parterre centrale della Tauentzienstraße nella città di Berlino.

Essa fu eretta in occasione dell'iniziativa "Boulevard delle sculture" patrocinata dall'amministrazione cittadina in occasione del 750º anniversario della fondazione della città.

La scultura è costituita da tubi in acciaio al nichel-cromo intrecciati e spezzati, e rappresenta le due metà di Berlino – allora divisa dal Muro – contemporaneamente unite e separate.

La scultura ha come sfondo prospettico la Gedächtniskirche, uno dei monumenti architettonici più noti della città.
