The 30th anniversary in 2019 of the Fall of the Berlin Wall is a significant occasion and I am pleased to play a part in it. I feel a strong association with the city and especially the Wall through my painting on the East Side Gallery. When I painted it in 1990 as the Wall was still coming down around me I did not envisage it would become part of a national memorial and be visited by so many people every year.
I am privileged that part of my story is included in the celebrations as a “witness of the time” exhibited at both the East Side Gallery and the Brandenburg Tor. It is also included as one of seven contributions to a book published by the Kulturprojekte Berlin, the organisers of the 30th anniversary celebrations.
