Bridge the Divide: Art on the Berlin Wall

Italian street/stencil artist Above has done it again – on the Berlin Wall! Seeing as 2009 marks the 20 year anniversary of the fall of the wall, it’s both clever and apropos. Above scouts urban areas for the installation of stencil works, often combining text with other imagery, reminiscent of British street artist Banksy. He then films the public’s interaction with the piece and voila, performance art (of sorts).  Bridge the Divide appropriates the infamous Pink Floyd lyric “just another brick in the wall” to comment on the dissolution of the Iron Curtain. Love it.
