Christine Fuchs

Artists start repainting faded Berlin Wall murals.

German artist Christine Fuchs renews her painting "She's black" from 1990 at the Berlin wall after a concrete-redevelopment April 14, 2009.

A 1,300 metre (4,265 ft) stretch of wall, the world's longest open-air art gallery, was decorated by 118 artists from 21 countries in 1990, but has since been damaged by the weather, exhaust fumes, vandals, and souvenir-seeking tourists.
The restoration work is expected to be completed in time for the 20-year anniversary in November of the fall of the wall which once divided communist East Berlin from capitalist west Berlin.
