To mark the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, and one of the most iconic and defining moments of the 20th century, Imperial War Museum London in Zone 1’s Elephant & Castle is showcasing the brand new artwork created by renowned street artists, STIK and Thierry Noir.

In collaboration with Imperial War Museums, both artists have created the artwork directly onto two original pieces of the Berlin Wall, which have been recovered from Berlin for the installation and showcased at Imperial War Museum, available from now until 1st December.

With street art pivotal to the Berlin Wall’s history, appearing in the early 1980s to document political commentary and artistic resistance, and Thierry Noir being heavily involved in the painting of the wall, this installation aims to reflect the moment in world history and its lasting legacy.
