4.11.89 Protestdemonstration Berlin DDR could be considered a protest book, an accounting of the events of that day which some observers have called a more important date in GDR history than the actual breeching of the Berlin wall that took place five days later. Heavy in graphic design over the photographs starts with the cover which completely reverses the numeric date. (I haven't quite put my finger on the reasoning but something about actors seeing the world from behind a proscenium or holding a mirror to life and thus reversed seems to lurk there.) The inside cover is a small blue tinted photograph of the empty intersection leading towards Alexanderplatz, shot from above it's a picture that may recall Koudelka's tension-filled wristwatch photograph from the Prague spring of '68. As the pages turn the photograph grows and so does the mass of people and for the next 115 pages we weave deeper into the crowd, the design changing with every page. A news ticker of slogans, chants, and demands for reform runs the top of most pages. (Jeffrey Ladd)
