Urban Explorations: Nacht & Nebel in Neukölln

by Markus Kather

This weekend Neukölln, one of Berlin’s most interesting districts for art and design, is showing off: Nacht und Nebel is a festival for local art and culture. In more than 100 locations Neukölln’s artists will present their work. At the NEMONA store near Hermannplatz, two young fashion designers present pieces that result from a collaboration with seniors in Helsinki.  

               

Celine David and Linn Annen, two young fashion designers based in Berlin, connected the World Design Capital 2012 in Helsinki with the European Year of Active Ageing. In collaboration with the Goethe Institut they created fashion for seniors together with a group of seniors, exploring their whishes and needs. The collection of clothes and accessories developed by the designers and participants was documented by photographer Peter Voß. Clothes and photos are exhibited until November 24th at the store of the Neukölln fashion design and sewing network NEMONA, Mainzer Straße 5.
