The Berlin Wall physically and ideologically divided Berlin from 1961 to 1989. The wall was erected in order to stem the flood of East Germans crossing into West Berlin in order to emmigrate the rest of West Germany or Western Europe. The Eastern Bloc portrayed the Wall as protecting its population from fascist elements conspiring to prevent the "will of the people" from building a socialist state in East Germany, and it came to physically symbolize the "Iron Curtain" that separated Western Europe and the Eastern Bloc during the Cold War.
Graffiting on the wall became popular for artists from all over the world and a place where tourists would go and admire the artwork. The West Berlin side of the wall had artwork completely covering the wall, while the East Berlin side was kept blank because people were not permitted to get close enough to the eastside of the wall to paint anything. We have created our own take on graffiti art inspired by the works that feature on the wall today.
