When did you move to Berlin and why?
I moved to Berlin in 1996 by accident. I had been studying for two years and we wanted to start a creative community in Frankfurt with some friends. But it was impossible to find a flat to share that was affordable and they also didn’t want students. Time was running out and suddenly someone offered me a room in Berlin. I always thought I would move to Berlin one day but not in this way or so quickly. I thought as soon as I go to Berlin I will never go back to a smaller city. I had visited Berlin before on two occasions for a week and I knew I would have to go there for the cultural and literature scene.
