Pictures of the Berlin borough of Prenzlauer Berg before the 1990 monetary union: “We need revolution” sings the East Berlin rock band “Herbst in Peking” in the ruins of the Berlin Wall. But in May 1990 almost everything has run its course. In the pub “Prater” Knatter-Karl is dancing with his girlfriend. Frieda and Gerda in the pub “Hackepeter” are shocked to hear someone has stolen a parrot from the zoo. The tenants in the houses dream of anarchy and Mrs. Ziervogel, who runs Berlin’s best bratwurst stand, blesses her first West German marks. Petra Tschörner wanted to capture the special feel of her borough, which has always taken up more free space than other boroughs.
