Our Refrain. An experimental hub in Berlin

With a proposal rarely seen before, the experimental artist Michael Poetschko works with images of all kinds that alternate with the scenes of a group of young people who go into an abandoned Berlin office in order to be free.

Books, comments, images recorded with cell phones, existential and artistic discussions... They are all fragments of a kind of intertextual dialogue, which transcends the rational to become a manifesto of resistance.
