Blumes Hof? Nettelbeckstrasse? Stettiner Bahnhof? What has become of the places which author and philosopher Walter Benjamin (Berlin 1892 – Portbou 1940) described in 'Berlin Childhood around 1900'? Eddie Bonesire's photographs take us to neighbourhoods in Berlin where Benjamin spent his childhood, though some of the places these photographs attempt to revive have changed dramatically in their appearance: Berlin still visibly bears the traces of its eventful history.
The book  'Walter Benjamin - Orte einer Berliner Kindheit / Lieux d'une enfance berlinoise' was published in October 2021 (see 'Publications')
