The Berlin Wall will be widely protested and ultimately brought down.



Christo & Jean-Claude : Artists
On June 27, 1962, Christo and Jeanne-Claude closed a narrow street in Paris with a wall of 89 oil barrels. The art barricade was a protest against the Berlin Wall which had been built in August of 1961. The wall was taken down after mass protests and political revolution in 1989.
