A writer in residence (Stadtschreiber) is a narrator of cities, someone who comments on the present and records it for posterity. Neue Berliner Räume now takes up this idea and presents its new long-term project Stadtschreiber on Instagram. For three month each, changing photographers will share their personal view of Berlin, its places, stories and people. Follow the Stadtschreiber here.
The first Stadtschreiber for the year 2019 is Miguel Brusch.
Miguel Brusch was born in 1983. After graduating in South Asian Studies and Media Science at the University of Hamburg, he started studying photography at the Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie in Berlin, from which he graduated in 2018. His work has been published by various German and international media outlets and exhibited at the Willy-Brandt-Haus in Berlin, at the Triennial of Photography 2018 in Hamburg and at the Fotogalerie Friedrichshain in Berlin, among others. Besides editorial and commercial work, he focuses on long-term documentary projects, often playing with the border between realism and surrealism. He lives and works in Berlin.
