More Walls

 

MORE WALLS TO TEAR DOWN

Exhibition against dictatorship.

 

For the 10th anniversary of the Cinema for Peace in Berlin 2012, The Dudes placed two segments of the Berlin wall painted with the portraits of the dictators Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (Iran) and Bashir al Assad (Syria), figureheads of oppressive regimes in their respective countries. These wall sectiond were part of a larger series called “More Walls To Tear Down” developed with French artist Guillaume Kashima to raise awareness of the ongoing need to fight against the oppressive regimes that still exist in the world today. Kashima painted several original sections of the Berlin Wall with portraits of infamous dictators. A number of international celebrities have shown their support for this campaign by signing a memorial plate.
