On a summer night in Istanbul, after a discussion about the Turkish communist writer Nâzım Hikmet on a terrace facing the Golden Horn. 54 years after the construction of the Berlin Wall. Passing by on a carpenter workshop late at night watching the wroker repairing old carpets at 1 am in the morning; long never ending nights of work in neon light.

Gunter Schöne: an Artist in an Ex-Stasi-Headquarter

As a West German you rarely enter the very Eastern parts of Berlin. Hohenschönhausen is known as one of the centers of power of the Former Communist Regime. The Stasi had it’s headquarters and a notorious prison there. Political prisoners would be tortured psysically and psychologically in there. A park hosts the former center for GDR’s sport athletes. For getting medals at the Olympics sportspeople would be abused with doping to demonstrate the superiority of the Communist system. Many of them suffered serious health problems later on.

Karaköy Fishmarket: the demolition of fun

 

The Fishmarket in Karaköy has been one of this magic places in Istanbul. Just beside the Galata Bridge, you would dive into an atmosphere of healthy good food, a smell of freshness, wonderful colors and very friendly, modest sellers never charging too much. A Solmon for 5 Dollars, can you imagine? A Kilogram of seasonal fish was even cheaper. Streetsellers would sell fresh squeezed orange juice, some fishermen would offer grilled fresh fish. Whenever I felt down, Karaköy Fish market was a spot to gain lot’s of positive energy.
