11 THINGS I LEARNED SPENDING A YEAR IN THE PARKS OF BERLIN

As many cities around the world are privatizing public spaces, Berlin is in a unique position historically and culturally. Green spaces, parks, and public spaces are abundant.

 

Yet, Berlin is not immune to the forces of privatization. I wanted to capture this moment in time by spending a year documenting the parks of Berlin. I decided to bike to a park every week to film and record what I saw and heard. Even with 30+ short videos it is impossible to share the full picture of the beauty and complexity of what I learned.

 

The following articles are a small attempt to share a few of the insights and feelings I learned during my year of filming in Berlin’s parks.
