Here are a few images from our walk along the East Side Gallery in Berlin. The East Side Gallery is a roughly one kilometer section of the Berlin Wall that is covered in murals. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, artists were invited to paint on the wall to commemorate freedom and German reunification. The artwork seems to perfectly mirror the creative and subversive spirit of Berlin.
Love the one of Sawyer running❤️
I remember when that happened. I was taking German and my instructor was originally from East Germany. She said the fact that people were approaching and touching the wall was astonishing to her. Her memories were of people being shot if they approached it. It was definitely an interesting time to learn about the wall!
Wow, interesting. Yeah – as I understand it, the west side of the wall was covered by graffiti before reunification, but the east side was blank for that reason. Makes the murals after the wall came down all that more significant…
