Zeit der letzten Brachen

16mm film/ video/ slides/ digital print

nGbK Station Urbaner Kulturen, 2019

I filmed the last wastelands of Berlin on 16mm, creating a personal archive of these disappearing spaces and my memories of them. The empty spaces of Berlin that existed since the end of WW2 were natural reminders of the war. In contrast to parks and playgrounds, they are places without prescribed functions and rules. The old emptiness of Berlin gave people room for their alternative ideas of what constitutes urban life.
