THE WALL BEFORE THE FALL
A publication from BerlinWall.Art by Edward G. Murray
We are developing a book for publication in late Fall of 2017. The final “look” has yet to be set in concrete but one thing that we will try to include is a collection of quotes concerning the Berlin Wall. We feel that this will maintain the focus of the book on the images while providing some engaging text. We are sure that a multitude of quotes exists. Two from American presidents would be good examples.
Kennedy's famous, 'Ich bin ein Berliner” and Reagan's, “Tear down this Wall”. Both are iconic for their impact and delivery.
We are interested in those that are more everyday yet of equal impact in a narrower framework. I can't recall who it should be attributed to (please forward the information if you know) but there is one quote which describes the Berlin Wall as “the world's longest art canvas”.
It is very important to include the quote and the attribution as well as the date and place. In short any relevant details that would help in giving the quote its context. To achieve these ends we are compiling a database for the quotes and providing a form for you to fill out so we can keep some organization to the effort.
If you know a memorable quote about the Berlin Wall complete as much as you can on this form. Contributors of selected quotes will be eligible for a drawing for signed copies of the book and/or published acknowledgement in the book.
