Lennon Wall

Since the 1980’s, the John Lennon Wall in Prague has been filled with graffiti. Under the former Communist regime, led by Gustáv Husák, the wall was a place of peaceful, written demonstration. Czech authorities often engaged in clashes with students who were marked as agents of Western capitalism. Today, the wall reminds us of past accomplishments but also serves as a notice of current geo-political problems.
