Alter the face of the world

1 view

This quotation, citing an “African saying”, is one of the original art pieces at the East Side Gallery in Berlin. The open-air gallery of murals by international artists covers a 1.3-kilometre section of the wall that separated the districts of Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain, and was opened in 1990.

The above mural, attributed to German-Iranian artist Kani Alavi and French artist Muriel Raoux, is over seven metres long. This saying refers to the democratic movement that was eventually able to topple the Berlin Wall.

The quote is also attributed to Eduardo Galeano.

“Many small people, in many small places, do many small things, that can alter the face of the world.”

Eduardo Galeano
