Making NEIGHBORHOODS - A Metropolitan Projection

We Heard Kreuzberg Is A Revolutionary City

We’re all stay and we know why, too.

Simone Dede Ayivi and Accomplices open up their archive of the good neighborhood. They have stories of coming and staying to collect and trade. As a symbol against displacement, we are dedicating ourselves to building things up and shaping things and shows the neighborhood its own stories. Voices from the neighborhood tell about upheavals, resistance and self-determination. And of growing up, moving, squatting and living together. And their very special Kreuzberg moments. There is always an occasion to make a NEIGHBORHOOD.
