Why Berlin?
Series of filmed interviews, 2008

The project Why Berlin?, initiated by Kummer & Herrman researches the relations and context of graphic design
in the Netherlands and Berlin. Through an inventory of questions Kummer & Herrman gather a network of personal voices about Dutch and Berlin graphic design and its relation to the public domain.

In this context, I have interviewed various creatives who have been working in Berlin since a while. The series of interviews was shown at the 4th B.A.S. presentation.

Over a period of five months five leading Dutch graphic designers moved their studio temporarily to Berlin. They worked by the name B.A.S. in the project space of The Netherlands Foundation for Visual Arts, Design and Architecture, on design projects which have taken place in the (Berlin) public domain.
