#BerlinWall segment as multilayered symbol set up in Brandenburg:
To remind the former course of the border, which exactly was here.
To remind Marienetta Jirkowsky, who was shot while attempting to climb the wall on November 22, 1980.
To remind 25 years of twinning with Muellheim (Baden Wuerttemberg). Students and artists from both cities will design the segment end of September.

Beside many other stories and commemorations the BerlinWall also tells the story of the evolving of Street Art.

This is a good and short read on how street art made its way from BerlinWall to luxury galleries, how it was taken over by the flourishing art market, which not only devours street art but also a number of BerlinWall segments. (German only)
