And the shame was on the other side

Window

Looking through the window – as the story goes – of the studio control room at Hansa Tonstudio; you could see the wall and a guard tower. Sometimes they flashed with a light and looked for any reaction from the guards. At one occasion a couple – two lovers – where seen kissing each other against the backdrop of the wall; a stage set out by the cold war. The scene was inspiration for David Bowie’s iconic song “Heroes”. This is the window.
