Market Halls have been huge buildings to encase street vendors and markets. I do remember vividly market halls in cities like Sevilla, or Augsburg, or Lisboa, or Valencia, or Mexico City, or Singapore. They were still operating and had a fascinating atmosphere of many vendors selling their stuff under one huge roof – no chains, no supermarket, only vendors. An atmosphere similar to week markets but operating on a daily basis in these halls.

Still there are cities who have their market halls still operating, as I have just learned in Augsburg. But in Berlin? I think the most prominent is the Marheineke Hall in Kreuzberg, still operating and very vivid. Others have been already closed and other struggle, see here and here. But there have been much more halls, and as well a huge one at Alexanderplatz.

Dabei ist sie letzendlich nichts anderes als eine Erweiterung des Geschäftsmodells des fliegenden Händlers. Ein Gespräch über die Attraktivität des Flüchtigen.

“Reach Out” – an organisation which aims to advise victims and educate against right-extremism, racism and antisemitism. Since 2005 ReachOut maps the sites of crimes of racist, antisemic or homophob violence. This work is extremely important in terms of documentation, and furthermore a very useful base to analyze the discriminatory aspect of the production of space. Even though these inicidents do not document daily forms of racism and antisemitism in forms of words, jokes, questions etc. But it visualizes on different scales in the City of Berlin how often – every incident is one too much – and where these incidents happens. It seems that you could see more incidents in East Berlin, but on the other hand a careful view shows, that there are many sites in public space which are not safe, as they are places with lots of passerby, like Alexanderplatz or Kantstraße.
