East Side Gallery – Focus: The Berlin Wall

Samstag, 25.3.2023, 14:00 – 15:30

In 1990 artists painted their pictures on the Berlin Wall. From 1961 to 1989 it separated Friedrichshain in East Berlin from Kreuzberg in West Berlin. To expand the border area, the buildings on the banks of the Spree were demolished and people had to move. At least 13 people died in the area between Oberbaumbrücke and Ostbahnhof. During this tour, historical traces of the division are discovered and artworks of the East Side Gallery are presented, that deal with life in the GDR and overcoming the SED dictatorship.
