Produced in association with MOMENTUM for the exhibition ‘Fragments of Empires’, MOMENTUM Berlin 2014-2015, this unique sound recording of the destruction of the Berlin Wall by German artist and film maker Lutz Becker has been released as a very limited edition vinyl 25 years after its anniversary.
The fall of the Wall in November 1989 symbolised the end of the separation of the City of Berlin, as well as that of Germany into Eastern and Western states. It marked, for everybody to see, the final collapse of Communism and was a moment in history that promised a new beginning to the people of Germany and other Europeans.
For the Germans the demolition of the wall was an act of liberation. It gave hope for a future in which unhindered communication and freedom of movement would be everybody’s natural right. Within days of the ‘opening’ of the wall, its terrifying symbolism lost its power. Millions of people came to Berlin to look at the now defunct wall and to take a piece of it with them to remember this moment of history.
Walls are normally silent. The Berlin Wall gained a voice at the moment of its destruction.

Album cover of Pink Floyds The Wall, 1979. Photograph: Handout. The most accessible, central part of the work is contained on the first two sides. From the first sounds of a baby crying to the final suicide note, Waters describes the wall that he sees built around people, cutting them off from each other and leaving them frightened and lonely inside. As the wall is built and the figure inside gets more crazy, there are attacks on those he sees laying tile bricks - schoolteacher, mother, lover and wife. But there are two more sides to go, from which one presumably concludes that the suicide wasnt real after all, or that the wall theme is now being localised to the Floyds own problems.
