The “New” Berlin – Art and Architecture

Lecturer: Eveline Eaton

After unification of East and West in 1989, the formerly battered and divided city has miraculously risen like a “phoenix from the ashes” to become once again the German capital and a veritable cultural treasure-trove.

Everywhere in Berlin, spectacular buildings are being erected, designed by leading architects from all over the world.  Sir Norman Foster’s new Reichstag is only one of many famous examples.  Rich art-collections are presented all over the “new” and “old” Berlin in splendid museums and historic palaces.

The talk will be infused with “Berliner Luft”, that typical Berlin-atmosphere that the lecturer can add as a born-and-bred native of the metropolis.
