About John Lennon Memorial Wall In Prague
John Lennon Wall Prague represents a symbol of peace and love. Earlier, the wall was a plain wall, but during the 1980s, artists started creating graffiti inspired by John Lennon and writing lyrics of various Beatles’ songs. The Sovereign Military Order of Malta owns the John Lennon Wall Prague and still allows the artists to create graffiti and have made this wall a piece of art.
According to John Lennon Wall history, it is said that Gustáv Husák’s communist regime did not really like the wall. The youth of the Czech Republic started writing grievances on the wall which then led to a huge clash between the students and Czech police near Charles Bridge. While this movement was termed by students as “Lennonism”, the Czech police considered this as a mental act with the support of western agents of capitalism.
On the 5th Anniversary of the Velvet Revolution, a group of students painted over the John Lennon Wall with white and a simple text on it “Wall is over”. After this, the Knights of Malta filed a complaint against students, which was later redacted. One can still find the wall murals there, but instead of “Wall is Over”, one can find “War is Over” written on it.
While it is still legal to create graffiti on John Lenon Graffiti Wall Prague, the authorities have tried to stop by painting the wall white many times. But within a couple of hours of painting it new pictures and images appear on the wall, making it impossible for the authorities to keep it graffiti free. Now they have given up on the vendetta and let the graffiti remain.
One can join walking tours that will take its passengers to the John Lennon Wall along with other famous tourist spots in the city. Locals and tourists often visit the John Lennon Wall art and draw an art piece of their own. The theme across the wall is love and peace. Even though it’s just a simple wall, the John Lennon Memorial Wall will always be a huge part of Prague history.
