Photographer's Note

Part of the John Lennon Wall, Velkopřevorsk n疥ěst (Grand Priory Square), Mal Strana, Prague.

Since the 1980s this wall has been filled with John Lennon-inspired graffiti and pieces of lyrics from Beatles' songs. The wall is owned by the Knights of Malta (which I find bizarre), who allow the graffiti to continue on the wall. On 17 November 2014, the 25th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution, the wall was painted over in pure white by a group of art students, leaving only the text "wall is over" [sic]. The Knights of Malta initially filed a criminal complaint for vandalism against the students, which they later retracted after gaining contact with them. The wall mural is still there as of Dec 6, 2014. And the "Wall is Over" bit has been changed to "War is Over". I wonder if anyone can show us what the wall looks like in 2015...
