Yes, we're back! In an attempt to revive the Data Viz Meetup Berlin since Betahaus closed its door at its old location, we'll meet a bit further west: The nice peeps from ZEIT Online let us use their event space.

This time, we'll talk about how data visualization can help us to represent people in all their diversity and nuances. Since this is a blurry topic, Lisa (that's me) will give a short introduction to the issue and what some data viz people have said about it so far.

We're happy to announce three speaker groups:

Zeit Online's Data Viz people will talk about their project "The New Colors of Europe" (, which is their in-depth coverage of the 2019 EU election.

Marie-Louise Timcke (and maybe one of her colleagues) from Funke Interaktiv talks about how they simultaneously covered the elections on a local level for the different regions of several local newspapers in Germany.

Cherian Grundmann will talk about "Nationalism and Dataviz - How popular media routinely fails to represent EU citizens", with a focus on the 2019 EU elections. He's the founder of OneEurope, an international digital magazine, in order to accelerate the development of cross-European awareness and identity.

As always, if you have announcements to share, you can also do so at the end of the meetup.

ZEIT Online! It's very, very close to the S-Bahn station "Anhalter Bahnhof". Exit there, then look for a ground-level corner of a building that's completely out of glass. You'll find a glass door to this glass room. That's where we'll be.

We're very much looking forward to seeing you there!
