entlassung aus der ddr

With this paper the artist 1972 was dismissed from the GDR

 

1971 the artist tryed to leave the GDR as an 18 years old at the boarder between Bulgaria and Turkey. He failed because of maps having been wrong. What he experianced you will find on the next pages. And how he put it into his art was to be seen in two exhibitions in Erfurt, one in Memorial- and educational institution Andreasstreet, on in "Speicher".
