On 21 and 22 October 2021, we broadcasted three virtual events live from Reinbeckhallen in Berlin, a former European industrial site that has itself undergone a lot of change. Our hosts Sumi Sumaskanda (DW News) and Vassili Golod (Machiavelli Podcast) took us through how the years post 1945 have influenced states and societies today. Each virtual event featured inputs from our community, expert talks and live music acts. We were joined by our partners and watch parties in Algeria, Chile, France, Georgia, Germany, Israel, Japan and Uganda.
If you have missed it, you can watch all three of our shows here.

We were joined by our partners and watch parties in France, Georgia and Uganda and our guests included Dr Lynda Iroulo (German Institute for Global and Area Studies) and Vincent Bababoutilabo (musician and activist).
