Wall of Shame — Book + Reference Map

In a world where movement between nations is becoming increasingly restricted and scrutinised, it is essential 
to reflect upon historical moments that are reminiscent of this situation in order to remind ourselves of the detrimental consequences. Wall of Shame honours the 140 people killed at the Berlin Wall [118 victims from the East and 22 from the West] between 1961 and 1989, reflecting on their attempts to defy borders, leading to their loss of life, as well as being an expression of a rejection of border regimes and loss of freedoms of movement.
Stories and data about West Berlin victims are confined to the West publication, and vice versa for East Berlin casualties, symbolising the physical restriction that the Berlin Wall imposed. The format allows you to read one book at a time, however, the information only becomes whole when you fold the books open to join together and read them simultaneously, reflecting the idea that physical divide reduces clarity and understanding in society.
In this sense, the format and the division of content is a protest against borders. The accompanying reference map gives context to the lost lives and their relationship to the loss of territory.
