Snowflake was so much a symbol for Barcelona that he was proposed to be
the mascot of the Olympic games in 1992. It was then decided that, due

But Snowflake didn’t die for another eleven years.
No typical tourist locations are visited in this tour; rather the

and its real history. My intent is to focus on the social structure, the
liveliness and diversity of cultures in Kreuzberg.

The caravan is placed on a scaffolding next to a building. You can access
the caravan from the window of the building’s first floor. This

pretends to be a solution to problems such as the high renting costs,
speculation or lack of economical habitable spaces.
