Interview: What does graffiti & street artist Sozi36 want from Kreuzberg?

Sozi36 likes to decorate mattresses and rubbish on the streets of Kreuzberg with his political messages and provocative jokes. I asked him why and how and he responded with very elaborate answers.

Feeling safe in Berlin: KREUZBERG IS MY CASTLE!

After the terrorist attack and the release of vicious crimes in the U-Bahn caught on video, people are talking (again) about the safety of Germany and Berlin in particular. Do we need more local video surveillance? More policing? Politics seem to agree. And I only have some loose thoughts about it.

Traveling through time, space and cultures at the Jewish Museum Berlin

As everyone already knows: I am not a big fan of museums. I like to immerse myself in history, but not necessarily by seeing old items in glass vitrines. That being said, the Jewish Museum is much more than just a display of historical artifacts: it's a highly sensual experience of history in context of art.

Walking through autumn fog around Landwehrkanal

A night in fog turns the atmosphere of a Sunday evening into an elegant, moody and incredibly dark film noir. There's something very upsetting about fog in the city, and yet I love walking through it. Although last nights fog wasn't nearly as impressive as the one we had in 2012 on Warschauer Straße and Oberbaumbrücke, I was still completely immersed in watching the faded lights and the silhouettes of other people on the streets of Kreuzberg and Neukölln. I took my camera along for a few snapshots.

Taking a walk through Kreuzberg in snow!

2016 is "finally" seeing some snow and I'm NOT freaking out! I do hate everybody who's out on holidays in the Southern hemisphere right now.
