"Wall Of Fame" presented at the Olympiastadion Berlin
The Olympiastadion Berlin has another tourist attraction. On Friday afternoon, the “Wall of Fame” was presented. Working with the project “New Faces – Culture on the Road” of the Berlin Archiv der Jugendkulturen e.V., the three Berlin artists David Kammerer, Martin Gegenheimer and Lukas Marmor designed a timeline that outlines the history of the Olympic venue in one of the most modern forms of art: a graffiti!
Beginning with the hero of the 1936 Olympic Games, Jesse Owens, the timeline takes the stadium visitors on a ride through history. Hertha BSC moving into the Olympiastadion Berlin in 1963 (start of the Bundesliga), the first DFB Cup Final at the stadium in 1985, the Rolling Stones concert in the early 2000s the FIFA World Cup 2006, the U2 concert of 2009 and much more up to the current days. The events that were sprayed display the diversity and richness of events that have taken place at the Olympiastadion Berlin.
The protagonists of the “Wall of Fame” stand as representatives for the different eras of the 75-year history of the stadium.
With more than 800 kilograms in weight and 42 meters in length at a two meter height, the new artwork at the Olympiastadion Berlin takes the visitors to the stadium on a colorful tour of history.
The “Wall of Fame” can be found next to the Olympic pool on the premises of the Olympiastadion Berlin.
