Berlin Photo Diary 2014 – “I stole my sister’s boyfriend”


Sign of Goo. Shop for used design cloths at Oderbergerstrasse 45, Berlin

But what ‘Goo’ was originally? It was an album of Sonic Youth, an American alternative rock band, released 1990.

The drawing in the sign was the cover of the album, made by Raymond Pettibon. His inspiration was a photo of the witnesses in the case of the Moors murders serial killers, taken by unknown paparazzi 1966.

So, what we can see as a sign of a shop is a) a design based on b) an album cover using c) a drawing, which was based on d) a photograph in a magazine.

Efficient re-use of a photograph, isn’t it.

Berlin Photo Diary 2014 – About new architecture

Two different views to the new architecture in Berlin.

The first is a site of new buildings of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, BMBF) on the northern side of river Spree, at Kapelle-Ufer Street. Administrative style?

20140701-G16-8197_8_9The second view is from Nöldnerstrasse, an apartment house near Ostkreuz train station.  How to categorize this style?


(I’m not pretending to know much about architecture. I just try to keep my eyes open …)
