- Documents the original works of art on the Berlin Wall
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, colourful, uninhibited and provocative works of graffiti produced - photographed by the artist and designer Hermann Waldenburg between 1984 and 1990.
