Der Engel

Both the Mysteries of Berlin and Der Engel use images connected with Berlin as a city frozen in time...

"Using a composite photograph, bought at Check Point Charlie in Berlin, of two portraits of a young man (one formal the other taken of his body after a failed attempt to escape over the Berlin Wall), DER ENGEL beatifies the image, with a touch of cynicism, by painting it with red ink, gold leaf and light - accompanied by Wagner's 'Wiesendonk-lieder'." - C.S.
