The ghosts of berlin

Ladd, B.

9780226467627 - The ghosts of berlin

Artikelomschrijving

Brian Ladd examines the ongoing conflicts radiating from the fusion of architecture, history and national identity in present-day Berlin. This volume asks such questions as: how will a reunified Germany confront a diverse and authoritarian past rendered tangible by the Berlin Wall, the Reichstag, Hitlers bunker - even the Brandenburg Gate? How can the rich culture of the past, the artistic and intellectual heritage of Berlins avant garde be rescued from the Cold War blight of Potsdamer Platz? And can the Neue Wache, Berlins monumental rememberance of the horrors of tyranny and war, become the structural centre-piece and symbollic guardian of this once and future capital? Ladd surveys the urban landscape and deconstructs the public debates and political controversies emerging from Berlins past and concludes that the ghosts of Berlin may never, indeed, should never, fade away.
