Berlin Wall Divides East and West Again


According to The Guardian, there are plans to repaint what remains of the Berlin Wall, roughly 1300 meters of concrete.

Noir, the Frenchman who painted the first major work of art on the wall, is now organizing the restoration of his paintings as well as those of around 120 other artists. The artists, representing 21 countries, will return to Berlin to paint the wall after it has been scrubbed and resurfaced. So how is this project dividing rather than uniting?

The Russian artist Dmitri Vrubel, who painted the famous image of the East German leader Erich Honecker kissing his Soviet counterpart, Leonid Brezhnev, has told German media he would not paint the same image as before. Noir dismissed the Russian artist, whose "kiss" painting has graced T-shirts, coffee mugs and posters in dorm rooms across Europe for decades, as a publicity-seeker.

Maybe we should just knock down the rest of the wall? Maybe repaint the original designs on paper or something?
