After the famous Barnett Newman painting was vandalised, it turned out the restoration costs raised exponentially. Replacing the orginal Red, with thick layers of varnish, it became a so called ‘headache file’ for the city of Amsterdam. This story is quite an exemplary example, and used here as metaphor for the political situation in Berlin vs. the boiling housing market, and the reaction of the Rot Rot Grün coalition.
