Dear Art Fucks Me fans from Berlin: Don’t miss this. I wont.
“From the 7th to the 9th of November 2014, inner-city Berlin will be temporarily divided 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: 8,000 luminous, white balloons mark the former course of the Wall. The emotional and visual power of this light installation also recalls the brutality of the Wall.”
On sunday 7pm (CET) this installation is going to end in a spectacular community event that will send all of the balloons soaring into the sky. Check this map to find your location. I imagine Eastside Gallery or Engelsbecken as good location to watch it. But it might also be really overrun there. Also I prepared an Art Fucks Me exclusive countdown for you to don’t miss it:
The anniversary project will be realised by the non-profit organisation Kulturprojekte GmbH in cooperation with the Robert Havemann Society and the Berlin Wall Foundation, at the initiative of the Federal State of Berlin.
The entire project was conceived by Moritz van Dülmen, Simone Leimbach, Tom Sello, Frank Ebert, Hans Reitz. The light installation is based on an idea by Christopher Bauder and Marc Bauder.
