Picturing Berlin – Reporting my City

A photography project for young adults

  • In our project Picturing Berlin – Reporting my City young adults who grew up or fled to Berlin explore their city through the camera lens. Accompanied by photographers and pedagogues they visit institutions and organisations in their neighborhood as well as photography exhibitions. They develop their own Storytelling, they learn techniques of Street, Portrait and Documentary Photography and become aware of the post production of photos. The young participants present their photo stories about Anonymity in Berlin in a public event in Prinzessinnengarten Kreuzberg.

    Closing Event: Saturday, 21 September 2019, 8 pm
    With Petros Kolotouros (VJ), An Dirella / Electro Tunes Ninja (DJ) and the participants of the project.
    Location: Prinzessinnengarten Kreuzberg, Prinzenstraße 35 – 38, 10969 Berlin, U8 Moritzplatz

    Free Admission!
