!! LIGHTS ON !!
8000 balloons will shine as a ‘wall of light’ along the former course of the Berlin Wall . Every single balloon will be released to fly off and “lift the wall” on November9th – 25 years after the fall of the former Berlin Wall took place.
As someone who was born in the former GDR, behind the Wall with parents who never got to travel to places around the world, it’s a weird but exciting feeling to see this light installation right before our windows.
25 years ago, this was the death-strip…nobody could have lived, or even walked so close to the wall. Now we live here with our baby who won’t have to suffer from being confined and from the lack of freedom to go wherever she want to go!
