From day one, I was playing with this idea, that I called “Briefe an Berlin”. Over the past months I started to ask several people with a “Berlin Connection” to share their thoughts and experiences with Berlin. No matter how short or how long. What is it that makes Berlin to what it is? And what is it for everyone with that connection, more than just another huge city on the planet? What attracts you or maybe: what pushes you away?
My goal is to build an archive of letters to Berlin from different angles. For example people that were raised and born in Berlin, and/or lived there during the Cold War. East or West, immigrants, Expats, Students, Lovers. People that left Berlin, and people that might came back…
If you would like to share your own, personal story about Berlin you are more than welcome to do so. Let’s build a fantastic archive together.
You can send your letter to Berlin to firstname.lastname@example.org. All received stories will be be part of a growing archive of Briefe an Berlin!
