Ask the Artist: Wall and Art
Moderated guided tours with artists at the East Side Gallery
How did the artists experience the painting of the East Side Gallery in 1990? How did they develop the idea for their artwork? And what was their life like in the divided city of Berlin and after the fall of the Wall in 1989? What is their perspective on their art and the memorial today?
Join an artist on a discovery tour at the East Side Gallery. A guide from the Berlin Wall Foundation will moderate the dialogue and tell the stories behind the historical traces of the former Wall site.
