Since the Berlin Wall came down on 9th November 1989, this reunited city has become the site of intense creative ouput. Artists, designers and musicians from around the world have relocated to Berlin, reinventing the city. Whole new neighbourhoods of what was once "no man's land" have sprouted vast studio and gallery spaces, welcoming young audiences eager to participate.

More than a decade on, and Berlin is once again Germany's capital city, bristling with new developments, restaurants and innovative stores as well as a vibrant, underground cultural scene that may not be apparent to the hurried visitor. The creative impetus is stronger than ever, fueled by a quality of life that combines the best urban amenities with freedom to bend the rules. Groups of friends run illegal bars, the streets are canvases for graphic artists and speedy communication technologies keep everyone connected, and facilitate much cross-disciplinary collaboration.

After studying and working in the UK, German-born graphic designer Carolin Kurz relocated to Berlin in 2001. She discovered a scene so lively and diverse that she's compiled the best work by over 40 of the city's young creative groups into this unique publication.
