À propos du blog
Berliner Gazette (BG) is a nonprofit and nonpartisan team of journalists, researchers, artists, and coders, experimenting with and analyzing emerging cultural and political practices. Since 1999 we have1 been publishing under a Creative Commons License with more than 1,000 contributors.

Our latest projects include "Black Box East" (2021), "Silent Works" (2020), "More World" (2019), "Ambient Revolts" (2018), "Signals" (2017), "A Field Guide to the Snowden Files" (2017), "Friendly Fire" (2017), "Tacit Futures" (2016), "UN|COMMONS" (2015), "BQV" (2012), and "McDeutsch" (2006).
  • Black Box East: Migratory Factories, Invisibilized Workers, and the Promise of Europe

    Freedom of movement and employment are to be ensured inside the EU. In this spirit, East and West Europe are supposed to grow together. Nevertheless, an army of EU citizens has emerged who belong to the European Union on paper but are de facto disenfranchised labor migrants who keep the West running, as anthropologist Tanja Petrović and journalist Maja Ava Žiberna argue.
  • Black Box East: Precarious Archives and the Politics of Documentary Photography

    Following the official end of the Cold War, the West’s “ethical imperialism” advanced the imposition of capitalist solutions on “communist” societies. In the course of this, the image of Romania (and Eastern Europe at large) has been remade with elements of international media stereotypes, as the photographer Petrut Calinescu argues in an interview with Stefan Candea.
  • Black Box East: A Time of Monsters and the Death of Certainty

    The events of 1989, in Berlin and throughout Europe, have inscribed themselves in the media memory of the West as a frenzy of joy. The Brexit, a good thirty years later, was not really celebrated anywhere. Nevertheless, there are revealing parallels between the hangover following the UK’s exit from the EU and the frenzy of "reunited" Germany, as Greg McLaughlin argues.
