Location Berlin

At the end of the 19th century and the beginning of 20th century, when the German industry took off, it was once an industrial metropolis in Europe. In the process of urbanization, people inject culture, art, and creativity into industrial relics, creating unexpected intersections in time and space. Several visual examples and interviews are being presented: How do people renovate industrial heritage with creativity, art and culture in the city in order to give them a new function? How to make them a part of the city’s creative economy and let the city be sustainable and livable?
