"You won't fool the Children of the Revolution." Marc Bolan, 1972

 

"Revolution is like Saturn: she devours her own children." Georg Büchner, 1835

 

Over the course of 1989, from June to November, and on into 1990, the cold-war status quo was radically brought to an end by a series of revolutions and political transformations that swept across Central and Eastern Europe.  From the shipyards of Gdansk, via Berlin's Brandenburg Gate and Prague's Wenceslaus Square, to the boulevards of Bucharest, the 'people's democracies' of the region were brought face to face with the democratic will of their own people on their own city streets and squares. Children of the Revolution 1989 - 2009 is a series of events taking place this year in London, twenty years on, examining these revolutionary

happenings and their legacy.
