Zwischenzeit or Intermediary Period refers to the time-difference between two clearly defined points in time. In the case of Jörn Vanhöfen's present work, it refers to the period between 1989 and 1991.
The works that arose during this intermediary period are probably Jörn Vanhöfen's most personal of all. In October 1989, he seized his chance and switched from the Folkswangschule Essen to the Academy of Fine Arts in Leipzig, making him the first West German to study at the HGB at the time. He witnessed the falling of the Wall and experienced the reunification of Germany in the East.
