EASTSIDE GALLERY … BERLIN

East Side Gallery _ 03

Headlining today’s post … Der Mauerspringer by Gabriel Heimler

The Eastside Gallery is not only the longest segment of the Berlin Wall that still stands today; it is likely the longest open air gallery in the world. It runs for some 1300+ meters, a bit more than 8 tenths of a mile, along Muehlenstrasse in the Friedrichshain district.

The fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 ushered in change, hope for a brighter future in a reunited Germany, and hope for a freedom-filled future for all peoples and nations. Artists from all corners of the globe gathered in Berlin to capture and communicate the joy and excitement spawned by this hope.
