It was in 1946 that the world first came to hear of a coral atoll in the Marshall Islands called Bikini. The following year, French couturier Louis Réard borrowed the name and applied it to a bathing costume for women. Breaking from decades of conformity, Réard dared to ‘undress’ women’s bodies in order to better emphasize what remained clothed - albeit in tiny wisps of material. By taking up the bikini as popular beachwear, women also found themselves thinking differently about their bodies. An ideal of perfection was reinforced by the appearance on the cinema screen of stars such as Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot and Ursula Andress, all of whom were featured in bikinis that accentuated their own curvaceous contours. More than a bathing costume, the bikini made its own contribution during the 1970s to the sexual revolution and to the changing relationship between men and women in general. This book investigates the history of the bikini and its effect on the evolution in the perception of women in society, as women regained responsibility for the way they look and laid claim once more to full sexual equality. A collection of images throughout this book illustrates this progression step-by-step over a period of more than 50 years.

Mitte 2014 wurde eine West-Berliner Inkunabel des Nachkriegs-Wiederaufbaus, das ehem. „Zentrum am Zoo“ nach mehrjähriger Sanierung wiedereröffnet. Seit der Mitte der 1950er Jahre besetzt das städtebaulich wie architektonisch bedeutende Gebäudeensemble einen auch stadtgeschichtlich exponierten Stadtraum zwischen Zoologischem Garten und Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche. Hier im „Zoo-Revier“ schlug seit dem ausgehenden 19. Jahrhundert das Herz der legendären Berliner „West-City“ mit ihren Varietees, Cafés und Kinopalästen. Im Krieg nahezu untergegangen, knüpfte das neue Zentrum mit seinem „Bikinihaus“ und dem die Filmfestspiele repräsentierenden Zoo Palast an die Vorgängerbebauung an. Das nunmehr in „Bikini Berlin“ umbenannte Denkmalensemble nimmt in Teilen diese alten Strukturen wieder auf, ergänzt sie aber auch um eine aufsehenerregende Shopping Mall und ein nicht weniger individuelles Themenhotel mit Orientierung auf den Zoologischen Garten.
