Eclats DDR / RDA splitter is a project initiated by the French historian Nicolas Offenstadt, who worked for several years on the GDR through abandoned buildings. eddr / GDR Splitter is a specific part of this work, centered on the city of Franfurt/Oder.

The work gave rise to an exhibition at the French Institute in Berlin, articulated around 18 triptychs for 18 locations, each consisting of a photo, an object found on site and a text written by Nicolas Offenstadt and historian Rita Aldenhoff-Hübinger. The vernissage took place on May 29, 2017. The exhibition was maintained until September 2, 2017. It was also hosted at the Médiathèque de Grenay (Northern France) in October 2019.
