After the Berlin Wall came down in 1989, hundreds of artists from all over the world gathered and transformed the eastside of the Wall with their paintings, giving the Wall a new face in a new time. Known as The East Side Gallery, this section of the Wall is a special place where art has become the expression for a unique point in time of the history of a separated Germany. It is a meeting point that talks about an old Berlin and a new Berlin, a separated and a unified Germany.
