Melvin Edwards is included in ‘Walking Through Walls', a group exhibition at Gropius Bau, Berlin, Germany,

Walking Through Walls is a group exhibition at Gropius Bau in Berlin, Germany, that marks the 30th anniversary of one of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Investigating the Berlin Wall as a symbol of division, the exhibition explores experiences of vulnerability and anxiety that result from the rise of socio-political power structures that thrive on confinement and segregation. The exhibition directly references the historically charged location of the Gropius Bau, from which many important historical sites are visible from the exhibition galleries themselves - including a fragment of the Berlin Wall.

Bringing together 28 international artists, Walking Through Walls covers a wide variety of media including painting, sculpture, photography, film, sound installation, site-specific interventions and performance. The exhibition includes works by Marina Abramović and Ulay, José Bechara, Sibylle Bergemann, Tagreed Darghouth, Jose Dávila, Willie Doherty, Smadar Dreyfus, Melvin Edwards, Dara Friedman, Dora García, Zahrah Al Ghamdi, Mona Hatoum, Nadia Kaabi-Linke, Michael Kvium, Gustav Metzger, Reem Al Nasser, Christian Odzuck, Emeka Ogboh, Anri Sala, Fred Sandback, Aki Sasamoto, Regina Silveira, Siska, Javier Téllez, Samson Young, Yuan Yuan, Héctor Zamora.
