Berlin is a perfect example of the amazing creativity and human depth that comes from boundaries and hardship. Rough, restricted, coldly designed and meticulously executed, a city that wears the scars of war with unflinching nonchalance, whose economy comes mostly from high-tech and research industries. And yet, this is a city that is flowering in modernity. It is the very heart of Europe’s creative exuberance. Although its nightlife is often celebrated as being one-of a kind in both quality and quantity, Berlin is not all about techno, black latex, and strobes. Artists of all kinds are flocking here to find fertile soil for their urban expression, and the creativity happening is deeply human.
