Weekly Photo Challenge: Hands

East Side Gallery - Berlin Wall

The picture for this week’s Photo Challenge: Hands. It represents a particular of the East Side Gallery and exactly a painting by Christine Kühn, called “Touch the Wall”. Touching the wall at any time between 13th August 1961 and 9th November 1989 would have been fatal since the Wall was part of the “Death Zone”. The artist herself had been so delighted to be able to touch the Wall after its fall that she wanted to let other people feel the same; so she invited passers-by to leave a colored handprint on the Wall by touching it with their own hands. And someone just keep touching it.
