Kiezgeschichten – Neighbourhood stories

100 years Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg

Duration of the exhibition: 24 April to 4 October 2020

Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg were created in 1920 in the course of the founding of Greater Berlin. They form "buffer districts" between the historic city centre and the incorporated surrounding communities. The new district names are not based on traditional settlement centres, the naming after parks seems arbitrary at first. At the same time, old place and district names such as Königsstadt, Luisenstadt or Stralauer Vorstadt "disappear". Over the past 100 years, new names and attributions have developed for individual districts and neighbourhoods: SO 36, the Golden Mile, the newspaper district, the Samaritan quarter or the Südkiez. Their designations and images are often attributions and constructions, either chosen by themselves or brought in from outside. The exhibition explores such urban spaces, the attributions associated with them as well as social realities, and tells stories from the past 100 years.

Opening: April 23, 2020, 7 pm
