The World from Berlin Guggenheim Lab Protest 'Hit a Nerve' in Berlin

Organizers of the BMW Guggenheim Lab recently abandoned its original location in Berlin amid fears of violent protests by anti-gentrification activists. They have now announced that the project will go forward, albeit at a more upscale location. German commentators say on Wednesday that while the resistance was a scandal, the city must address citizens' concerns about social exclusion.
