The journalist Katerina Oikonomakou conducts interviews with artists, writers, musicians, filmmakers, dancers and what she calls visionaries who live and work in Berlin, or who happen to be passing through. I've just discovered her wonderful site for real, and I am sweetly drowning in its stories.
Interview partners include German book types Knut Elstermann and Reinhard Kleist, but also a host of other fascinating people, from the Auschwitz musician Coco Schumann to star GDR photographer Harald Hauswald. All the interviews are in English at Berlininterviews. Make sure to plan in a little time.
