Reading & Discussion
Moderation: Craig Schuftan
"The Beauty of Transgression" is an insider’s memoir that captures the atmosphere and documents the creative history of Berlin’s underground from the 1980s to today. In this book, de Picciotto tells her personal tale of Berlin’s cultural scene before and after the fall of the Wall as well as how it was influenced and changed by the city and its inhabitants over the years. The book brings together her accounts of musicians, fashion designers, and club owners as well as other artists and their milieus with unique first-hand descriptions of milestone places and events. It is not only a fascinating collection of stories about key individuals, but also gives an authentic and detailed overview of why Berlin has become one of the most appealing metropolises for creatives from around the world.

"This book is about remembering some of the secret, magical moments of history, which are not planned or manipulated commercially. They prove that with the decisions we make, each step we take, we forge our world and demonstrate, once again, the unique importance of the individual."
Danielle de Picciotto
