This exhibition is an installation which compares and contrasts the trend of Berlin and its history of conflict—a critical commentary on its development into a “cool” city 30 years after the fall of the Wall.

The main room has a light installation which resembles anti-tank obstacles and quote from Günter de Bruyn, a writer in East Germany: “I was able to study the process of habituation (with the political system) as I recognised it in myself.”

Next to it, there are two side rooms: an East Hipster Café and a West Hipster Café, which parody the trend of Berlin.  In each area, visitors can find a part of an interview with a former East Berliner and a former West Berliner about life during the period of the Berlin Wall.
