CWIEME – 2016

The CWIEME was held in Berlin during second week of May 2016. To break the intensity of the exhibition, the EIA delegates liked to have some fun and let off steam. They also organised a guided bike tour of former Soviet East Berlin to include Alexanderplatz, Karl Marx Allee, Café Moskau, Friedrichshain and Berlin Wall’s East Side Gallery, ending up with a stein or two in a bierkeller.
