1 – Berlin Friedrichshain, Frankfurter Allee, the battle between aggressive capitalism and lazy communism, not written on paper but scratched into the face of local architecture:
Commerzbank
2 – modern graffiti like the winners’ flag on the roof top of an orthodox architecture (they call it Stalin-Baroque) in East-Berlin, Frankfurter Allee, former STALIN-Allee

  7. WHAT an incredible comparison-and-contrast show and tell here, Frizz! Imagine finding those two buildings as contrast between capitalism and communism side by side, like that! And I loved the graffitti, so high up on that solemnly constructed building!
