a break-through symbol short before extinction?
Sometimes it is necessary, if you want to have a better future, to make a risky break-through. And sometimes organizing a good future is not to make something new, but the capability to remember the old landmarks of creativity – and not to destroy them. Actually these old wall graffiti, a tribute to the fall of the Berlin wall and those who had the courage to resist: actually a deconstruction is planned, because an expensive hotel likes to have a large entrance road. There is a tension, if the officials will ignore the protesters on the Berlin streets!

Wonderfully written piece, I agree with you dear Frizz, Thanks and Love, nia
my text is inspired by the book of Scott Berkun: MINDFIRE
– actually I’m writing a review for amazon.com
Thank you dear Frizz, I have searched now, seems it would be interesting to read his books.
my Scott Berkun review, now finished:
Wonderful, Frizz. Thanks for posting. Big smiles …
Happy Friday! Have a fun weekend.
Fabulous entry FrizzT. Each one of these pictures are marvelous.
I followed some of the links. Good gracious why would people paint graffiti over art?
I’m sure the developers of the de-Lux building will win the battle to knock the wall down – buildings pay taxes after all… (but how could they think they could simply knock the wall down without letting anyone know?)

informative and inspiring, thanks.
Agree! And I love these graffiti that are works of art instead of random acts of vandalism. Thanks for showing them!

i love the art!
Has anyone thought about incorporating this art into the new development – they do that alot here with the facades of buildings considered too important to demolish…
Well said Frizz! We cannot afford to forget any of that history. Fabulous shots as always 🙂
Good representation for a “risky breakthrough”
Another terrific post with wonderful photos. Though I was a kid in 1989, I think I was just old enough to realize that the fall of the wall was a really big deal. It’s the first major event that I remember being interested in.

Nicely done Frizz. As an artist I so value street art. Most important. 🙂
Risky breakthroughs are the only way to a better future. Thanks Frizz for reminding us! Awesome post.

I like your text to this photo, and it does look like an interesting book you were inspired by. I went to The Wall concert with Pink Floyd in Berlin in 1990. It was a spectacular atmosphere… speaking about future tense, this night though the air was brimming with hope, love and life beyond imagination…
