In November 1930, 33-year-old Wilhelm Reich moved from Vienna to Berlin – in the hope of a favourable environment for his therapeutic, sexual reform and political activities. In all these areas he had previously come into conflict with Sigmund Freud and his colleagues.
There are only a few architectural testimonies of Reich’s work in Berlin. I would like to show you four of them before I move on to the main topic of my presentation.
