Artists Reconstruct the Berlin Wall with Lights

New and old Berliners, together with the entire world, will take to the streets on November 9, the global 25th Anniversary celebration of the Fall of the Wall in 1989.

The city, its citizens and friends will participate in the joyous events that commemorate the Peaceful Revolution. Among the key projects are the web portal Fall of the Wall 25 where everyone is welcome to post their memories, opinions and thoughts about the world-changing event.

Another project is a concept called Lichtgrenze by artists Christopher and Marc Bauder. It is a a row of 8,000 white luminous balloons, 15-kilometre Border of Light, that will mark the former course of the Wall and divide the inner city of Berlin from Bornholmer Strasse to Mauerpark and the Berlin Wall Memorial on Bernauer Strasse to the Reichstag, past the Brandenburg Gate and Checkpoint Charlie to the East Side Gallery. – Tuija Seipell.
