Berlin: between two Europes ?
On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, this new debate seeks to re examine the consequences of German reunification and bring a better understanding of the troubled relationship between two Europes. It will focus on the current situation of the German capital: a showcase of capitalism triumphing over communism, largely gentrified but still flowing with waves of Ostalgia, Berlin is situated at the crossroads of two Europes, with very different conceptions and expectations. A tension that has been intensified by the rise of the far-right in the last regional elections. But what does Berlin itself think? And what does the city stand for in today’s Europe?
With Sonia Combe, Francesco Masci, Geraldine Schwartz, Marie Reinert and Jacques Rupnik. Moderator Jean-Max Colard.
