Angles Workshop “Asia in Berlin”

Artist collective Angles brings together artists, writers, filmmakers, photographers, and other creatives of diverse backgrounds to artistically tell stories about the people and places that make Berlin.

Their monthly meeting is held at NION Base, exploring a theme “Asia in Berlin” as our first collaboration.

Two guest speakers, Sarnt Utamachote (film maker from Thailand) and Tsao Yidi (curator, coder, and more from China/Hong Kong), shared their unique perspectives on their ethnic identities that Berlin, forcefully at times, make them conscious of.

Our conversations ranged from cultural comparison of political activism between Hong Kong and Berlin, colonial expectations that the West still drags along and unconsciously imposes on the East, cultural representation through gastronomy, and sexuality.

Please keep an eye on Angles’ updates on what stories they are going to cover! You also find them on Facebook and Instagram.
