8:33 am
painted fence years ago on what became known as the east side gallery. in kind of eyes with none of us had any way of knowing that it would become what it is today namely one of the main tourist attractions in berlin or in germany. and a kind of memorial a place of pilgrimage for people from all over the world who want to remember the wall of. homes we've been on this is what his section of the walls looks like today in 2013 he secretly painted over his old work and course discussion of a new and his help is wanted to make a statement about the negative aspects of the new berlin. i painted everything art witnessed in berlin in 2013. the investors of the digital behaviors walking around with law takes on their laptops in the world queuing in front of clubs they won't get into. the us just grew up in west germany and in the 1990 s.

8:35 am
to morrow never knows as one of my favorite beatle songs and describes a sense of life from certainties. it's always been this way but especially now we can't predict where the world is heading. due to the whole corona thing but also politically aligned. on the one hand there's a sense of anticipation but also an unsettling feeling of insecurity. in june of this year i mean your put this feeling into images on the 40 meter high level of the building in northern berlin. weighed down by unwanted ballast is a balloon heading into the i mean what i really can't imagine what the future holds for the world for germany or for berlin yet he remains an optimist because he saw how a wall that people once died trying to cross became
8:36 am
a work of art. i have a hard time imagining what it would be like if germany were still divided. but i think it'll take one or 2 more generations before this process is completed. the process of process jim will continue to monitor this process close. and no doubt discover many more motifs for his work. even if it might look like it the building behind me is not an old palace on a going renovation the whole world form is a completely new building it is the reconstruction of the old ball and city palace building it was a lengthy process and it's still not finished and now work is also on the way outside the building on the monuments to freedom and this follows a lot of political debate on the project and we met up with one of its creators.
8:37 am
the planned monument to freedom and unity was designed by sebastiaan let's. the concept is a 50 meter moving bowl that visitors can access if another people move to one side together to gently tips that way. the monument is meant to commemorate the peaceful revolution in the former east germany. india is this just you mention the idea is for people who gather on this monument to get a feeling for what happened in 1990. 9 for them to communicate move in one direction together. and use their weight to alter the position of the ball and create their own living image and so on gonski been because it's a choice. the monument will be located near to such landmarks as the brandenburg gate the t.v. tower. and berlin cathedral. they attract tourists from all around the world to what used to be east berlin. the reconstructed berlin palace
8:38 am
will be an added attraction there if the work goes according to plan the monument to freedom and unity will stand in front of it by late 2021. distinct my verdict on this monument owners 1st all of the brave east german citizens who dared to take to the streets in 1909 and 90 and fight for democracy and freedom that we must not forget east germany was a totalitarian regime and now a monument will honor them here in the heart of berlin. the site of the future monument is itself historically significant the original berlin palace and the national kaiser bill have a monument once stood here in 1950 the east german leadership had both of them demolished. the old palace was replaced by the so-called palace of the republic the seat of the east german parliament. on the side of the mid 970.
8:39 am
1900 the peaceful revolution led to the end of east germany and the reunification process. later the east german parliament building was demolished. in its place will be the new berlin palace and the monument. the most one also. i have to say is the place we're at now is steeped in history of the palace of the republic stood here to the east germany foreign ministry and the state council building stood there so of course this place was very important for east germany as well. and 2013 members of the stuttgart architectural firm milligan partner completed a life size model. but political disagreements kept delaying the start of the actual construction the symbolic groundbreaking finally took place and may 2020. the foundation integrates the surviving base of the old national kaiser built a monument there by combining the past and present. a modest of the more
8:40 am
looking at this model you see the steps here and the big platform which takes up almost the entire space that once surrounded the equestrian monument that stored here in the center. and what's really interesting is that now it's the viewers will be standing at the center where at one time kaiser bill him stood it's now the visitors will be standing because of them stand that's to prison for. if everyone plays their part the monument to freedom and unity will embody what its title suggests. citizens in motion. the wall that used to divide east and west once stood here right beside the river you can still find remains of the old wall now known as east side gallery of course today it is no longer divides the city but attracts tourists from all over the world and even 30 years after german unity many germans refer to things east and
8:41 am
