    How do I make the perfect Selfie? How can I take good photos – whether with a mobile phone or a SLR camera? How do I edit photos on a mobile phone or computer?

    In the FOTO-WORKSHOP the photographer and pedagogue Alina Simmelbauer shares her knowledge in a simple and playfully way. The topics are determined by the participants. In the workshops we try to find practical answers to the everyday questions around photography.

    On four afternoons girls from 8 years on can come to the girls shop of loyal e. V.. The workshops are open and do not build on each other. Anyone can take part, all materials are provided and the workshop is for free.

    Topics of the FOTO-WORKSHOP are:

    Thursday, 26 September 2019, 4:30 – 8 pm 
    How do I make a good selfie? How do I take great photos of myself or others? What is a Selfie, what is a portrait? We playfully learn how to move in front of and behind the camera.

    Thursday, 10 October 2019, 4:30 – 8 pm 
    We go on a discovery journey and explore our surroundings with the camera. Together we will be looking for good motives, which we can capture. Afterwards we select the results and see how we can make them even better with image editing.

    Thursday, October 24, 2019, 4:30 – 8 pm 
    Dancing, music and fun! How can we photograph a party when everyone is moving fast while dancing? How can we take fascinating pictures when it’s dark? We learn to paint with light.

    Thursday, 31 October 2019, 4:30 – 8 pm 
    What is your favourite photo? What have you always wanted to photograph? How can we put that on a photo we dream of? Together we find ideas for pictures and transform them into expressive photographs.

    We regularly invite you to the FOTO-SOIREE on Wednesday evening. The journalist Margit Miosga talks to guests from politics, art and culture about the background of the current exhibition.

    On Wednesday, December 4, 2019, photographer Nelly Rau-Häring and Margit Miosga will be talking about the exhibition OST/WEST BERLIN and about life in Berlin between the 1960s and the 2000s.

    Margit Miosga is an author, radio journalist and editor. Since 1979 she has worked in Berlin, where she mainly works for the radio, among others in the editorial department of the ZEITPUNKTE of rbb-Kulturradio.

    The photographer Nelly Rau-Häring documented life in Berlin East and West from the mid-1960s to the 2000s like hardly anyone else. In doing so, she followed her two great passions: her enthusiasm for photography and her curiosity about the people of Berlin. Together with her virtuoso eye for expressive detail, this makes her a very special chronicler.

    What do you think of art and culture in Kreuzberg? What do you miss? What do you like? What can we change together? We would like to find out in our mobile FOTO-STUDIO.

    Become a Cultural Accomplice!

    We invite people in Berlin Kreuzberg into our mobile FOTO-STUDIO and ask them to reveal their ideas, their utopias and their criticism of art and culture in Kreuzberg in a short interview. With these ideas, we would like to create cultural offers for all Kreuzbergers.

    With a portrait photography – taken with professional photographers and made visible in the district – we want to give these ideas and utopias a face. Like-minded people in the neighborhood can recognize each other and come together.

    We will be happy to answer your questions!


    We regularly invite you to the FOTO-MATINEE  on Sunday morning. Personalities from art, politics and culture give insights into their lives and work.

  • FOTO-AUSSTELLUNG (Photo Exhibition)

    We regularly present a FOTO-AUSSTELLUNG (Photo Exhibition) at f³ – freiraum für fotografie. The previous exhibition Ident•i•gration – Home and identity in a globalized world asked questions about identity and migration in our world.

They used hybrid narrative forms, from photography, texts through to archive material. Through their lives they tried to answer what identity and homeland can be in our globalized world.
