The #ZEROWALLS Competition
On 9 November 2019 we’ll celebrate the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, that divided Berlin for 28 years. This was made possible by the peaceful revolution of courageous people in the GDR who took to the streets to demonstrate for their freedom. When the wall fell, anything seemed possible. Wunderbar!
Today, 30 years later, we find ourselves in a situation that we thought we had already overcome. Political leaders and populists want to convince us that the Wall is an effective political tool to master our global challenges. But as the philosopher Noam Chomsky already says: walls that separate people from one another are the architecture of violence.
