East Side Gallery

East Side Gallery

World's largest Open Air Gallery
Künstlerinitiative ESG e.V. / 2009

The East Side Gallery is the largest open air gallery in the world. In the period from February to September 1990, 1316 meters of the Berlin Wall in the East Berlin Mühlestraße were painted with images. More than 118 artists from 21 countries created 106 unique motives, expressing the joy of the fall of the Berlin Wall on 9 November 1989 and the end of the Cold War in Europe. In November 1991, these images and the part of the wall were declared a national monument, but have since been exposed to the weather and the arbitrariness of visitors. Since 1996, the artists in the Artists Association East Side Gallery is taking care of the preservation of the wall. After some local Renovations 1996 (two images) and 2000 (40 photos) the entire wall and the paintings were rehabilitated in 2009. All remaining artists were again invited to Berlin to repaint their original designs from 1990 to the previously reconstructed wall. Thus, the East Side Gallery was established again. As before, the artists are fighting for the long-term preservation of the wall, against the constant threat of renewed gaps due to new construction projects.
