Matt Frei explores the unique city of Berlin, an artificial metropolis – one that has not grown organically, but always been contrived and redefined. Throughout its history it has been a laboratory of human behaviour, thought and art. What began as a provincial town in the 17th century on a central European marsh became the very image of the messy development of human-kind during the 20th century. It is a place whose history we all feel caught up in, in some way. Even if we have never visited, we all feel touched by events that have taken place there because they are the universal stories of our time.

Here different layers of history have piled up roughly and chaotically. An experience of Berlin is never a chronological one – any walk through the city is a rollercoaster back and forth though the years. The city is much better conveyed by broad sweeps through history, rather than in chronological episodes. This series tells three stories of Berlin – of the Ideas generated there, its Buildings and its People. These three different journeys through the city are not a comprehensive history, rather an attempt to reveal the spirit of Berlin.
