THE BERLIN WALL IN THE FORTRESS OF KNOWLEDGE

20/11/2019 Autor Vera K

The Fortress of Knowledge in Olomouc organized a happening to mark the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. For this purpose, a concrete wall surrounding the grounds of the Fort was used. Visitors could leave messages or small drawings on the theme of freedom and visions for future generations. For this event, the Chaos Company provided lecturers from its ranks who advised visitors on how to work with spray and other techniques. The happening was attended by children with their parents as well as older generations of visitors. This gave rise to a mixture of diverse drawings and messages consisting of bright, warm shades on a cold background, which may evoke cool totalitarianism, bound in contrast to the warm shades that lit up the wall.
