Why can’t I find a cheap flat in Neukölln, Friedrichshain, Kreuzberg? Shituationist Berlin De-Mystification Service Series #1

Short note on “Ancient Methods visit” Berghain Saturday March 19th 2016

It has been a while since my last post about upcoming events in Berlin. A series of reasons for that. Berlin contemporary electronic music scene has dramatically commercialized last years.

One could guess it was over in 2010, after that Fox news commercial (insurrectionism became mainstream?), all we can say is, that on the surface only some ironic ripples were left online.
