John Lennon WallFree: All time

Once a normal wall, The Lennon Wall or John Lennon Wall has, since the 1980s, been filled with John Lennon-inspired graffiti and pieces of lyrics from Beatles songs. The first drawing appeared after the singer’s death and many others has been popping up despite numerous coats of white wash by the secret police. The Czech communist regime deemed these graffiti work of the mentally deranged and agents of Western capitalism. This led to a clash between hundreds of students and the authority. The movement was known as “Lennonism.” Today, the wall represents a symbol of youth ideals such as love and peace.
