Berlin in Focus: Cultural Transformations in Germany

By Barbara Becker-Cantarino | Go to book overview
complex regulations governing property rights favor return of property to private owners over compensation. The regulations have considerably hindered investment and the general economic recovery of the five new states; see Vorbereitende Untersuchung 6.
13.
Until 1989, approximately ten youth clubs existed in the neighborhood of Prenzlauer Berg. Even for GDR standards, this was a large number of clubs for a relatively small area.
14.
For a critical analysis of the GDR's instrumentalization of antifascism, see Eigler and Pfeiffer 1993, 23-41.
15.
For a more detailed discussion of the relationship between art and politics in the Prenzlauer Berg circle, see the volume edited by Peter Böthig and Klaus Michael and my own two articles on the subject.
16.
See the anthologies Abriß der Ariadnefabrik by Koziol/Schedlinski and Vogel oder Käfig sein by Michael/Wohlfahrt.
17.
The only large commercial enterprises that were established in Prenzlauer Berg in the second half of the nineteenth century were a number of breweries. Since 1989, the large building complexes of these breweries have assumed an unforeseen role in the restructuring of Prenzlauer Berg's local culture.
18.
Unemployment rates for women are twice as high as for men, and the prospects for re-employment are far smaller for women (see Arbeitsmarktdaten). Furthermore, the drastic reduction of affordable child-care facilities has created a vicious cycle especially for single mothers.
19.
Treuhandanstalt was the state trust agency, acting under the responsibility of the Federal Ministry of Finance; it was in charge of privatizing public property and real estate previously owned by the socialist state.
20.
Another recently founded organization in Prenzlauer Berg, Netzwerk, is entirely concerned with children's needs. It functions as a "clearinghouse" for local groups, projects, and events concerning children in Prenzlauer Bera, and sees its primary role in facilitating contacts, information, and cooperation among a variety of educational and cultural organizations and groups working with children. Netzwerk has contributed, for instance, to the creation of an adventure playground, a children's farm (in the area where the Wall used to be), and a children's museum, as well as to the organization of special events for children ( Tebbe 1990, 213-14).
21.
The unification treaty determined that the large building complex should belong jointly to the city of Berlin and the federal government. While the federal government was willing to sell its "half" to the city, the two parties were unable to reach an agreement about an adequate compensation for the property value.
