East Side Gallery

As I said here, last saturday we went to visit the East Side Gallery. This open air gallery consists of 1.3 km long section of the Berlin Wall (we still have to go back there to see it all). It’s really impressive to see so many paintings from artists from all around the world, you can see and feel the spirit of liberation of that time, wishing and hoping always for a free future for all the people in the world.

One of the most famous paintings is “My God, Help Me to Survive This Deadly Love” by Dmitri Vrubel, he painted the iconic photograph of Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev leaning in to kiss his East German counterpart Erich Honecker, in 1979 during the 30th anniversary celebration of the foundation of the German Democratic Republic. This painting really catches your eye because of its power.

These paintings are a historical mark of Berlin, so respect and preserve! 😉
