East Side Gallery Highlight Tour: Upheaval 1989-90 and German Unification: Mixed Feelings?

The artists painted their messages for a united Europe on the Berlin Wall in 1990. Some took experiences from 1990 as the inspiration for their artwork. The more than one hundred artworks tell of hope and joy, but also of worries and disturbing experiences during the time of upheaval in 1989/90. As part of the tour, some artworks will be presented and a look will be taken at how the artists look back on German unity and the transformation more than 30 years after the fall of the Wall: What would they have painted on the Berlin Wall today? Are the messages still relevant?
