Video: 'Ghost Train' - Memories of ghost trains and ghost stations in former East and West Berlin. This motion comic sparked the idea for our project.

Escape and Departure

Project 2

Borders prevent people from moving around freely, from entering or leaving a country. But many people want to or must leave their homes for good or temporarily – whether during the German division or today. In doing so, people face bureaucratic and financial hindrances, dangerous escape routes and a great degree of uncertainty.

The second project group started in May 2022. Right now, the participants are collecting memories about escape and departure. They will then develop a narrative and write the manuscript. Artist Marc Buyny will translate the group’s idea into images. The motion comic will be published in the end of February 2023.
