Breaching the Walls
9 November 1989
The fall of the Berlin Wall is one of the most important and significant events of the 20th century, still able to play a significant periodizing role in contemporary European history. Above all, it is the symbol of the re-appropriation of individual rights and freedoms by citizens of the former Soviet bloc who have struggled to achieve more democracy in their countries. Like all events pregnant with symbolic value, it brings with it an interweaving of expectations and hopes, but also of disillusionments, brought by the gap that the original ideals live with respect to the reality of the present. Working critically on this problematic entanglement is the main objective of Breaching the Walls. We do need education!
Main activities of the project
