Brand Wand by Harf Zimmermann( Book )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and German and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The soaring, rigid walls of the tenement blocks torn open by the bombing of World War II dominated the German streetscapes of the 1950s. Fire walls, originally integrated in the building and serving as fire shields, suddenly became visible and turned into outer walls. That is how the originally rather technical term got a new meaning: Firewalls as walls spared by the fire. Those long brick walls often adjoin to vast vacant lots once taken up by buildings that were never reerected after the war. Windows-sometimes bricked up again-cover the walls without any rational order, bearing witness to the troublesome moments of Germany's history, just like smut, traces of bullets, shrapnel holes, the outlines of previous buildings, and provisional repairs. The remarkable housing boom following the fall of East Germany whitewashed most of the scars and overgrew the occasional graffiti and advertisements originally decorating those walls. A look behind them reveals-like a negative form of the same cast-the imprint of the building's story

The sad eyed lady by Harf Zimmermann( Book )

4 editions published in 2019 in German and English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 'The Sad-Eyed Lady' Harf Zimmermann documents the Berliner Luft- und Badeparadies (?Blub? for short), a once loved bathing and leisure center in the Britz district of Berlin that is today a graffiti-stained ruin. The center opened in 1985 at an impressive cost of 44 million marks and welcomed roughly seven million visitors before its closure in 2005 after a series of hygiene complaints. Zimmerman?s focus is the center?s slow death, the eerie remnants of pleasure that once was. In his words:?The city has been left behind and the silence is near complete. All the bridges are broken, the windows nailed over or opaque with dirt - everything here appears bewitched. This could be the realm of the Snow Queen, where the beautiful princess is imprisoned, trapped by an evil spell. Or it could be the Star Trek episode where Captain Kirk beams himself onto a celestial body with Bones and Spock after his sensors register signs of life, only to realize that the aliens have left their planet or been killed before they could escape. And now no one can know how they looked, those beings, and what purpose the strange objects they left behind may have served.?

"Though these pictures appear like magnificent modern paintings, they are in fact a deeper unconscious social artistic expression of an urban re-development that historical events since the Gründerzeit have fermented and brought to the surface." Robert Polidori The soaring, rigid walls of the tenement blocks torn open by the bombing of World War II dominated the German streetscapes of the 1950s. Fire walls, originally integrated in the building and serving as fire shields, suddenly became visible and turned into outer walls. That is how the originally rather technical term got a new meaning: Firewalls as walls spared by the fire.
