  To mark the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall, Alexandra Novosseloff and Frank Neisse have put together an exhibition about dividing walls that are still "active" today.   On a two-year journey around the world that took them from Tijuana to Belfast, Jerusalem and Kashmir, these two specialists in geopolitics went to meet the people living close to these walls to get a better understanding of what their lives are like. They brought back a story packed with anecdotes and observations, combining the lively tone of a travel notebook with the perspective of a geopolitical essay.   Original music composed by Bernard Wystraëte accompanies the photographic journey, inviting visitors to venture into the geographical and social reality of the people featured, and divided into four themes: Life between walls - Wall, territories and identities - On the other side of the wall - Beyond the wall.
