Prenzlauer Berg – from ‘Dissident Hill’ to ‘Pregnancy Hill’
What started out as a working class district with gloomy backyards became an Eastern German dissident district which could never be fully brought under control. In 1989 it was one of the centres of the democracy movement. It then became famous in the 1990s, representing the freedom of the „Wild East“. Today, it is one of the best addresses in town. What’s left of the Prenzlauer Berg myth?
A walk through different eras. From Käthe Kollwitz’s committed art to the creative precarity, from child mortality to children’s yoga, from appartment barracks to townhouses.
