    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 unter dimitra@gfhf.eu oder 030 60 40 77 18.
