Colorful Ribbons Wave Across the Former Footprint of the Berlin Wall.
artist Patrick Shearn was commissioned to create a large-scale installation that integrated the reflections and hopes of 30,000 people.
Patrick Shearn is particularly inspired to lend his work to this auspicious historical event and intends “Visions in Motion” to be a symbol for peace and the united power of the people overcoming injustice. “As an artist, I am deeply moved by the invitation to translate such a watershed moment in human history into physical form. In light of the state of affairs in the world today, I feel it is a time to be bold, gather together with a unified voice, and throw our shared colors and our dreams skyward for the world to see.”
The Berlin Festival Week from November 4 – 10 marks the 30th anniversary of the Peaceful Revolution and the fall of the Berlin Wall: the capital city will be transformed into a large open-air exhibition and event location. Over one hundred events at seven original sites of the Peaceful Revolution, visitors are invited to learn, remember, debate and celebrate. As partner of the Senate of Berlin, Kulturprojekte Berlin is responsible for the organization of the official celebrations. The full program will be released by the end of September on the official website: https://mauerfall30.berlin/en/
