Berlin is a magnet for people and investment. Population is expanding, real estate value is rising, residents are being displaced. Many Berliners have to or want to move “outside”.
“What is outside?“ deals with questions of social urban development, contexts citywide and the theme of being “outside”. The station urbaner kulturen near Kaulsdorf-Nord underground station is a place for production, an address and a meeting point.

In collaboration with AG Hellersdorfer Illustrierte
