In an interview with Gestalten.tv, editors of “Berlin Wonderland: Wild Years Revisited 1990-1996,” Anke Fesel and Chris Keller, set the scene and share some of the stories behind the rare images of a city that no longer exists in this form. Berlin then was a place of total freedom, but also of lawlessness and hooligans. A time when MiG 21 jets were re-appropriated for artistic purposes and squatted buildings secured with welded barricades. The video also provides a preview of the material from the book and Gestalten's upcoming exhibition of the same name: firsthand accounts and pictures that will be new to the public eye.
