Description - The Berlin Wall Book by Hermann Waldenburg
Painters and graffiti artists from all over the world used the grey concrete of the Berlin Wall, that stretched for miles and divided a city, as a canvas to visually record their impressions of the underlying political and social culture it represented; thus the Wall became iconic, representing the voice of a generation in the 1980s. Today, more than 20 years after the re-unification of the city, only a few sections of the Wall have been preserved, and just as much of the powerful and emotive graffiti, it is now a thing of the past. This book documents the art of the Wall - over 70 of the most fascinating, creative, colorful, uninhibited and provocative works of graffiti produced - photographed by the artist and designer Hermann Waldenburg between 1984 and 1990. Text in English and German.
