Berlin is still the city of writing of modern times. This book assembles 15 Berlin artists from a circle that originated in writing. They are linked by a long, partly shared experience in Berlin‘s public space. The reader is given an insight into the ideas and thoughts of a heretofore hermetic movement, whose effects are mainly revealed on the surface.
Alongside an assortment of essays, they lead us on a journey away from the common city image, and into a remarkable landscape of outlooks and strata, spaces and dreams, visible and invisible cities.

Also available in a German edition with the title Das Gedachtnis Der Stadt Schreiben.
