The capital of Germany and home to 3.5 million people, Berlin has a rich, colourful and fascinating history. Stephen Barber explores previously neglected material from the city’s audio and visual archives to examine how people interacted with the streets, buildings, squares and spaces of Berlin. He takes a deeper look into riots, ruins, nightclubs, crowds, architectural experiments, citywide spectacles, film, art and performances, which have all affected the structure of the city and the people who inhabit it.
