Cold War Spaces – Checkpoint Charlie and the Berlin Wall

Cold War Spaces returns today with the Wende Museum’s Chief Curator and Director of ProgrammingJoes Segal speaking with Iain MacGregor discussing the Berlin Wall and Checkpoint Charlie.

How does space impact the way we live and experience our environment? What did private space really mean under socialism? What was the function of public space between state planning and private appropriation? Who was sent to the secluded spaces of prisons, mental institutions, and gulags? What imaginary spaces were created by art, science fiction, and utopian dreaming? And how did all these spaces change after the fall of the Berlin Wall?
