On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall on November 9, 2019, the German Embassy in Santo Domingo donated a complete segement of the Berlin Wall to the Dominican Republic.

After arrival, the Dominican Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the German Embassy started an art competition: Dominican artists could make suggestions for a re-painting, in order to transform the Wall into a symbol of freedom, democracy and human rights.

An independent jury will award the three best drafts and select an artist to paint his ideas on the Wall.
