Berlin arts

Art historian Gillen Eckhart (Wikipedia)

Marijke van der Meer takes us on a tour of Berlin’s cultural scene, eight years after the fall of the Wall and a year before Berlin will be the seat of government again. In the 1920’s, Berlin was the cultural capital of Europe and the breeding ground of theatre, cabaret, film, music and architecture. What about today? Guests include visual artist Hans Haacke, art historian Eckhart Gillen, National Gallery director Peter Schuster and satirist/director Peter Enisikat.
