The Berlin Wall has two sides – east and west. On the east side, people did not allow anyone to approach it, but on the west side it became a canvas for artists, professionals and amateurs. By 1989, it had developed into a graffiti exhibition that spans many kilometers. After the destruction, the fragments of the wall became an object of trade.
