Photographer / C*Space Co-founder and Host
Jan Siefke is a trained photographer, international flaneur and host of C*Space in Berlin. His background in photography spiced up and flavored his life with extensive works and stays in South America and Asia. Shanghai was his professional base for over 16 years.
From working on topics like saddlers in the empty spaces of Patagonia, he came to the extreme opposite side visually reflecting on urban life in Megacities in Asia. His work is published in German and English-speaking media. His artistic projects touch on Urbanism + Identity – also as part of the CITYMAKERS programme. As a Co-Founder of Shanghai Flaneur, the exploration and in-depth knowledge transfer on relevant city and society topics was his main motivation and driver.
In Berlin, being part of a great team, he creates an environment for inspiration and creativity in his C*Space, welcoming workshops and hosting crosscultural events. Globally minded, locally inspired he lives life as an adventure every day.
