Place In Place Of: Berlin

Posted by Jeremy Beaudry | Mon Aug 8th 2005 2:46 p.m.

My colleague and I are newly settled in Berlin as artists-in-residence at the Karl Hofer Gesellschaft through the end of August. We'd like to share with you an online documentation / critical inquiry project which we have been maintaining during our time here:

http://berlin.placeinplaceof.net/

Essentially, it is two-column blog which we are using to post synchronic investigations / interpretations of our experience of Berlin -- expect as much media as we can feasibly cram into a web page: text, image, audio, video, etc. As the beta version of more expansive place blog project I'm developing, this is definitely a work in progress and, as such, there may be glitches -- any feedback regarding these and the project in general would be greatly appreciated.

Best.

Jeremy Beaudry

    Cool project. I've visited Berlin a few times, and I find it an
    astounding place. (You could pigeonhole me as another Brooklyn hipster
    who thinks Berlin is cool 'cause it's all Euro and post-Imperial and
    electroclash and whatnot. But, hey, be nice.)

    But where's the RSS feed? If it doesn't have an RSS feed, I'm going to
    forget it exists.

    Ahhhh. Duly noted and remedied. I've created a feed here: http://
    berlin.placeinplaceof.net/index.xml -- although, please excuse my
    inelegant handling of article links by pointing them all to the site
    index url. I'm working out how to handle archiving the posts and how
    users can access / remix / configure them according to their
    preferences.

    Funny, I've run into a few Brooklyn hipsters here...

    Thanks.
