EXPO : ART LIBERTY. FROM THE BERLIN WALL TO STREET ART

The temporary exhibition « Art Liberty. From the Berlin Wall to Street Art » is organised as part of the celebrations of the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge and the 30th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall.

This cultural project takes place around the prestigious Mardasson Memorial, in front of the Bastogne War Museum.

Art Liberty pays homage to the pioneering artists who have seized the Berlin Wall, a symbol of oppression, as a support for creative freedom. 30 Street Art artists have each created a work on an original fragment of the Wall.

One red thread connects the Ardennes and Berlin: the fight for freedom!

Content of the exhibition:

  • 30 works on sections of the Berlin Wall from Berlin’s no man’s land.
  • 30 films related to the creation of each work in the Art Liberté collection with artists’ interviews.
  • A large fragment of the Wall from the west side, where street artists Jef Aérosol and Jimmy C. painted the portraits of the three pop stars associated to Berlin, David Bowie, Iggy Pop and Lou Reed.
  • 3 Trabants painted by 3 of the Wall’s historical artists, Thierry Noir, Christophe-Emmanuel Bouchet and Kiddy Citny.

Each work is adorned with a poetic post-it created by the French poet Jean-Pierre Lemesle.
