Kiezgeschichten – Neighbourhood stories

100 years Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg

June 19  to  October 4, 2020

100 years ago Berlin came into being as we know it today. Old Berlin is merged with the surrounding towns, villages and estates to form Greater Berlin. Overnight the population doubles to almost four million, and twenty new districts are created.

They include Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg - two artificial products formed from the districts of the historic city centre and named after parks. While the names of the old districts, such as Königsstadt, Luisenstadt or Stralau are slowly fading, the new neighborhoods are developing their own names and attributions, such as Chicago on the Spree, SO 36 or RAW grounds. Some are forgotten today, others are popular far beyond the city limits.

The exhibition at the FHXB Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg Museum tells the stories of the neighborhoods of the past 100 years. It explores social realities, self-portrayals and external attributions: What do the various urban spaces stand for, who lived and worked here, what do people associate with their neighbourhood?
