Exhibition Stefan Falke
What is it like living in the shadow of a border fence? How does culture thrive along the border between Mexico and the US? laif photographer Stefan Falke looks for some answers to these questions in his long-term project "La Frontera".
A wall of steel separates Mexico from the US and is 600 miles long. But in spite of this barrier, the arms trade, drug smuggling and abductions still manage to take place, making border towns like Tijuana very dangerous places. Courageous artists, photographers, architects, writers and teachers living on both sides of the steel fence oppose the brutal situation with their work and give the region a little colour, culture and hope.
Pictures from the project can now be seen in an exhibition in the Art Center LA CASA DEL TUNEL in Tijuana, Mexico.
