Back to Berlin Burd


at the Berlin Wall


Glasgow and Berlin school pupils created 500 burd sculptures and these were lined up behind George Wyllie's Berlin Burd which, he said, told them what it could see on the other side.

Nine months after the Berlin Burd had been installed the Wall came down as people protested against it. The Berlin Burd still stands.
