Zurück in die Zukunft


Pictured Above: Gneiststraße in Berlin's fertile Prenzlauer Berg district before and after reunification

I dried my clothes during the summer of 2007 on the third balcony from the bottom in the Altbau pictured on the left. I also spent a lot of time on that Balkon searching in vain for an open WiFi network. As a result of these often failed efforts to get online, my research summer abroad frequently felt as forlorn as that DDR-era photo looks.
