Jens Klein developed his photo series based on images from the Stasi Records authority showing balloons transporting flyers from the FRG into the GDR. Klein underpins the (partially absent) evidential value of the images with information from the meteorological archive on the respective wind conditions. He also questions the interests of the Stasi employees in the processes of creation and composition by integrating one and the same object into his selection of serial images.
The Ballons photo series by Jens Klein was acquired with support from the Friends of the GfZK.
