Study Trip

Berlin: Music, Fashion and Art

Thursday, April 25, 2019 - 08:00 to Sunday, April 28, 2019 - 21:00

CM5020D Berlin Cultures

Explore the discursive construction of Berlin as a cultural space. Analyze how Berlin constructs itself and is constructed by others as a metropolis of music, fashion and art. In recent years Berlin has become known as the “capital of cool.” Local and external representations of the city, as well as historical and contemporary narratives have fabricated a mythical Berlin Culture, marked by supposed creative and commercial freedom. Start in Berlin, in the field, by exploring and experiencing the city and its music, fashion and art scenes through two days of walks, talks and tours. A final day will take place in Paris where students present their research findings and reflect on both process and methods. B ecause of its focus on how a city’s cultural scenes are communicated, this module offers a critical, practical and experiential case study that is relevant to a wide range of communications careers.
