To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall, artist Bettina Forget is creating an installation in the Visual Voice Art Gallery for two days - November 9 and 10, 2009. A symbolic Iron Curtain will span across the gallery, made entirely of traditional German pretzels, which she has baked herself. Echoing the celebrations of November 9, 1989, she will give away all pretzels during the two days of the installations. Visitors to the gallery are invited to cut a pretzel from the installation, thereby "cutting the iron curtain" in a symbolic (and delicious) gesture.
