Berlin : The Passenger

Berlin : The Passenger



When the Circus Came to Town: The Resurrection of Postdamer Platz by Peter Schneider

Berlin Suite by Cees Nooteboom

An Author Recommends by David Wagner

Plus: the controversial reconstruction of a Prussian castle, Berlin's most transgressive sex club, a green urban oasis, suburban neo-Nazis and much more.

'Berlin is too big for Berlin' is the curious title of a book by flaneur Hanns Zischler who jokes about the low population density of this polycentric, extensive city. But 'Berlin is too big for Berlin' in another sense: how to live together and keep alive the myth of 'Berlin, the trendy city'? To understand it, it is necessary to go on a journey to its origins, the nineties: the scars of war were everywhere, coal stoves, dilapidated buildings, basic supermarkets... Today, however, the search for abandoned ruins, the hunt for heirlooms in markets and illegal parties in basements no longer exist.
