Berlin: Unapologetically rebel

We explore the German capital’s identity and dissect the city’s anti-status quo legacy.

Berlin is an unconventional city, ever changing and yet forever defined by its turbulent past.

From 1961 to 1989, the Berlin Wall split the city and polarised Germany into two peoples divided by the ideological struggles between East and West. But what is Berlin today? Have the barriers the wall created been broken over three decades later? Is there still an East vs West?

In this edition of Talk to Al Jazeera: In the Field, Stefanie Dekker explores the German capital alongside Berliners who dissect the city’s anti-status quo legacy and how it is reflected in Europe’s – unapologetically – rebel capital.
