The Zoo Station is synonymous with numerous images: the center of old West Berlin, "Zoo Station: The Story of Christiane F.", the railway station, film sets, the forgotten place. That's where Berlin lived and it's where the city still lives today.
In this workshop, the participants will explore this special area around the Zoo Station, the Kantstraße and its surroundings. The growing diversity of architecture and the people who use this place in different ways, use it as a place of transit, as a terminal, as a place to live or work and a place for consumption or passing leisure. How do these people shape the station, its image and its happenings? What traces to do they leave? With the camera and personal perspective, the participants can approach the course individually, address their own questions photographically and compare historical shots around the station.
