What we see, what we do and who we meet: it usually happens right in our neighborhood. These little randoms make up most of our lives here in Berlin. With every little piece of the puzzle we hope to get closer to portraying an authentic picture of the city.
People tend to forget very often that FindingBerlin was once created as a showcase for the photography within our group of friends. While we’ve extended the philosophy to include more than just our own circle of friends, we’re still, essentially, just that: a crew that likes to take pictures, travel the world and discover new places in
In continuation of the Raumverdichtungen series, Jan Herdlicka visited places you come across everyday. In his technical process the obvious dimensional characteristics blur out and only a fraction is left. With this he is questioning the process of memory and the character of the structures surrounding us.
While getting back to work without the distraction of swimming pools and Späti-Hangouts might be a bit of a bummer, this fall has been beautiful so far. For the next two or three weeks, the streets will hopefully be covered in golden and brown and green and red and orange and yellow colors of the falling leaves,

There are plenty small galleries around the city, off-spaces with niche-exhibitions or weirdly curated events. But not one of them has gathered such a steady, loyal and crazy cult as the Team Titanic crew did. Located on Flughafenstraße (not a very intuitive place for an offbeat gallery) and with a witty program of contemporary, transdisciplinary,
It happened to me when I moved to Berlin six years ago, that I wanted to go to a lake on an extremely hot summer day. So I decided to go for a swim in one of Berlin’s lakes, I did a quick search on google and before you knew it I was on my way to Grunewald lake with another new Berliner. We packed a bag, took some towels, a bikini and our bikes. It was only when we
Whenever visitors ask me about the scenic route the Bus 100 offers, where to hop on, where to hop off, I tell them to forget about their ridiculous plan to see a compressed version of a city that most Berliners don’t care much about, travelling among other tourists out and about for a landmark safari. Instead, they should board
Everybody knows the Berlin Wall and the East Side Gallery, one of the last existing parts of this cruel construction. Since it’s forbidden by the authorities to spray the other site of the wall with legal graffiti it’s quite uninteresting to take a look at the “West Side Gallery”. But since July this place transformed into an
Summer time is flea market time. Specifically, in Kreuzberg and Neukölln, it’s Flowmarkt time. We’ve been fans of those booths and takeaways for quite a time now and it’s safe to say, that not only for us, but for many others the Flowmarkt on Maybachufer has developed to a safe bet for a summer sunday routine. If it’s
As most of you have probably noticed by the nasty smell in the U8: it’s summer. For at least another two days we are spared from thunderstorms and ice blizzards. But since this (and by this I mean GODDAMNIT IT’S SO HOT AND MY T-SHIRT IS SOAKED IN SWEAT) is also a very rare occasion, most of
Our man Jan Herdlicka continues his charming project “Sammelkarten”. I think you know the procedure by now: you can get a package of beautiful handmade mini-prints of Jans photographs. If you are lucky you will even find a “print”-card in your package which will get you an awesome print of his work. All you have to do
There are plenty of moldy ruins in Berlin and you’ve probably seen them all. Spreepark, Eisfabrik, Teufelsberg– if anything, those abandoned places are deeply integrated into the usual tourist excursions through the city . They all look the same after a while. Trash and graffiti, trash and graffiti, trash and graffiti. That said, it’s still a very
