Berlin in the 90s - In addition to the great political turmoil and the commercialised techno-culture, a now rather forgotten parallel universe shaped the lifestyle of the city: the world of cellar bars and backyard creatives. In the open houses and apartments in Berlin-Mitte, after the fall of the Berlin Wall, a scene of very different young people celebrated a carefree freedom. No matter whether a project had a promising future or not - you lived from one event to the next experiment, and operated the de-establishing of art and market quite playful.
Berlinized describes this special way of life in a reflexive journey through time to Berlin in the mid-90s. Filmmaker Lucian Busse, himself an active protagonist of that time, used his camera to document the city's transformation, the art scene, clubs, concerts and construction sites, where the open spaces were filled with ever new impersonal office buildings.
