  1. I’ve noticed that there is a lot of graffiti everywhere. Do you go looking for it, or is it really everywhere? I think it’s a sad thing when people feel a need to splash their opinions all over buildings. To me it looks ugly. Your photos are good, but the subject is sad to see.

  2. Well, graffiti is an important part of life of many parts of berlin. expressing political statements, tagging and marking your identity, your stories, your territory. it´s a symbol of fighting capitalism, the logic of property markets and of heteromomy. Graffities on walls (in Berlin) means breaking the walls. Freedom somehow. The first thing people did when the berlin wall was collapsing was painting the wall, doing graffiti on it…
    that´s very important to understand the dirt of berlin. but this dirt is not stable and sustainable. this dirt is not beautiful, it´s ugly. it´s just temporary. but maybe that´s the essence of berlin…

    and – how you´ve written – it´s not related with hapiness…
