“Ein Journalist ist einer, der nachher alles vorher gewußt hat.”

And another time the story of the eviction today was a false alarm.

But for this yesterday there was in FreeCuvry a reunion to discuss the future of the camp and how to react when the police will arrive.

Mostly of the people there were activists and journalists. Somebody told that the owner Artur Süsskind would have been come today to speak with the inhabitants of FreeCuvry….mmmmm….

I don’t know if a billionaire would do it….we will see.


Yesterday I also spoke another time with some journalists, this time from VICE, although I promised myself I would have done it anymore.

I don’t trust media and journalists, no more. I spoke with lot of them in the last time, because FreeCuvry is now a hip topic for the media. I thought I could make them speak about another side of Cuvry, that made by people who still believe that something good can born here, little by little. But what they wrote it was almost just what everybody can say just staying here one hour, and what you can see with a so superficial gaze is not a paradise, for sure.

We will not speak with journalists anymore.

We had no experience before in managing with press and media, but what I saw in this time in Berlin is just a bunch of stuff of poor quality.

This is the information today.

Do you still trust what is wrote in the newspapers? What I read till now are just bullshits.


Sayonara Discuvry

It seems like our project arrived to the end.

Now it not just noise, the voice that this week police will came to evict the camp are real and concrete: tomorrow the parking around FreeCuvry is already reserved for police’s cars.

It continues the calling of supporters for FreeCuvry, who want to stay here, camp or whatever, to avoid the eviction. Most current infos can be found in the FreeCuvry Facebook.
We will stay here tonight and next day, hoping to manage to documenting everything till the end.

This evening in Cuvry there will be a reunion, at 18.00 on the river.


Tonight we will make a fire at our house, eat and stay together.

You are invite to join us to say “Sayonara Discuvry”.



Discuvry project: one and half year later

Discuvry is a project between art, architecture and social experimental research. It goes over building a simple object, but include living the work and making daily actions.

The idea of realize an illegal house in the empty field of Cuvrystrasse came at first to Yuki, he wanted to realize a big project and I followed him, because it was very interesting for me seeing from inside if a anarchic multicultural village works, how it develops spontaneously in the heart of a european capital, how this architecture without architects lives and grows.

Yuki realized a stop-motion video of the building process and the first exhibition of Discuvry was the collective “Open Monement”, at the Kunstraum Bethanien in Kreuzberg. In the summer 2013 Yuki showed the project at the MOCA, Hiroshima City Musuem of Contemporary Art, for the exhibition “Site: Places of Memories, Space with Potential”.

We have continued the project untill now, documenting it day by day, doing pictures and observing how the life is going on FreeCuvry.

I never imagined personally this project would have lasted so long. Today is already one year and four months.

We saw lot of changes to happen on the field, people arriving and going away. We listened lot of stories, funny stories, cruel stories, surreal stories and too real stories.

We learned a lot.

We learned to give the right importance to the things, to appreciate the simplicity. We learned that another way to live is possibly, or better, other 100 ways to live are possible.

Of course we have our vision about life. We work hard everyday and we try to don’t ask, if we can do it by ourselves. Yuki had two other big project, one in Göttingen and one in Berlin, for Hebbel am Ufer, and one exhibition at REH-transformer gallery, in Berlin. I worked in a architect office in Berlin, collaborating with ISSS-Research&Architecture.

Not all the people who live in FreeCuvry have our same life-style, some of them work, some are artists, some musicians, some collect bottles, some ask for money in the street, some simply don’t do anything.


I don’t agree with many of the life-styles in FreeCuvry, but I am nobody to impose my life vision to anybody except to myself.

And you? Are you so sure you can do it?

Today there was the demonstration for supporting FreeCuvry, the Gerhart-Hauptmann-Schule and against their eviction.
