Year: 2014

ISBN: 978-0-9930830-0-6

Comments: Designed by Ania Nalecka / Tapir Book Design, Edition of 1,000, printed in tritone on Munken 170gm, Hardback 380 x 282mm cover with 315 x 235mm pages

sold out

By a series of fortunate events, Mark Power was present at the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.

To mark the 25th anniversary, this new production (self-published under his new imprint, Globtik Books) is bound as a pastiche of a newspaper Power purchased in Berlin the morning after, embossed into heavy-duty cardboard.
 
While the early pages read as news-based photojournalism, as the book unfolds Power retreats away from the epicentre of the event to re-camp over the border in an almost desolate East Berlin. From there he views the story from another perspective, before embarking on a (frankly rather pointless) search for Bertolt Brecht’s grave.
 
The book is both a record of a major 20th century news event and a piece of critical soul-searching about the lessons learnt from the experience as, in the accompanying essay, Power recounts his fascinating tale of chance and choice.
