Verhüllter Reichstag

„Nun war ich stolz auf meine Stadt“

Die Verhüllung war das erste Gesamt-Berliner Event nach dem Mauerfall. Morgenpost-Redakteure erinnern sich – Serie, Teil 4

Wer damals in Berlin lebte, wird sich gut an die heißen Tage im Juni und Juli 1995 erinnern, als ein Gebäude im Mittelpunkt stand, das bis dahin eher ein Schattendasein am Mauerstreifen gefristet hatte: der verhüllte Reichstag. Plötzlich kamen Freunde von überall her zu Besuch. Und während die Welt über Berlin staunte, revidierte so mancher Kritiker seine Vorbehalte gegen die vermeintlich oberflächliche Verhüllungsaktion durch Christo und Jeanne-Claude. Deren Wirkung und Bedeutung wurde vielen erst klar, sie vor dem schimmernden Koloss standen. Redakteure der Berliner Morgenpost erinnern sich.
