Mexico-City, MEX – Xochimilco


Location: German school in Xochimilco

1 segment from Waldemarstraße, Kreuzberg

 

The Colegio Alemán Alexander von Humboldt in Mexico City is one of the largest German schools abroad. Its Executive Board Member, Gerhart E. Reuss, formerly helped to build the Volkswagen plant in Puebla. In the beginning of the 1990s, he was enthusiastic about the Berlin Wall sell of and got therefore in contact with Limex.

For a total purchase price of 30,000 Mark Reuss bought 1 segment each for his German schools in Lomas Verdes, located in the north of Mexico City, and in Xochimilco, south of the city.

The Wall segment is showing early versions of Thierry Noir’s Heads, which are now a trademark of the international renowned Wall artist.
