Anniversaries in 2014 : Berlin wall festival of freedom

On 9 November, the dominos featured in a live performance, which included the designers of the Domino Action, politicians, contemporary witnesses and guests from all over the world. The former German Foreign Minister, Hans-Dietrich Genscher, and the Nobel Peace Laureate Muhammad Yunus and Mikhail Gorbachev have been among the guests.

The Wall blocks are minor works of art, each of which has been individually decorated. Kulturprojekte Berlin called on young people from Berlin to take a closer look at the theme “20 years after the Fall of the Wall” and to give the domino blocks an unmistakeable face. In this way an unusual gallery evolved for the festival to which the musicians of the “West-Eastern Divan Orchestra” with conductor Daniel Barenboim have also contributed. Barenboim will personally open the “Festival of Freedom” with an open-air concert.

The Fall of the Wall project also received support from abroad. The Goethe-Institut’s “Journey of the Wall” took 20 symbolic blocks to places around the world. Their destinations were Israel, Palestine, Korea, Cyprus, Yemen, China and Mexico – places where division and borders experiences shape the everyday lives of many people.
