Write the Wall – 20 Years Breakdown

Near to the Berlin-Hauptbahnhof, a very interesting urban art installation takes place: “Write the Wall”! It’s a community work of many different artists, which will change its view every day.

20 years after the fall of the berlin wall everybody is talking about the breakdown. We are constructing a temporary memorial and artistic canvas for visual and lively remembrance, dynamic reflection, and a critical assessment, emphasizing art & action. (From the flyer)

The art installation in the public space consists of three entangled parts:

  • A wall, consisting of 20 wall segments from the Berlin Wall.
  • A camera, which takes every minute a shot of the wall
  • An interface, which is accessible locally or via the Internet.

The interesting fact behind this installation is, that only one side is free for painting – As in the divided Berlin only the west side of the wall is directly accessible. Hence there will be a counterpart to the famous East Side-Gallery, the West Side Gallery!

Today I visited the “Write the Wall”-installation and took some shots of it – Take a look!
