Fictional Spaces — a territorial and topographical survey of the vast housing estates, built in the typical plattenbau style by order of the East German authorities in the 1980s on the fields in the east of Berlin. An apparent never-ending resource on constantly recurring facades, kilometer-long heating pipes, countless parks and parking lots. The peripheral contrasts the urban, the emptiness oposes the conurbation.

Mounted prints on woodchip wallpaper in a classical 90ies office building.

Graffiti writers belong to a fast track, invisible legion of subway, train yards & street roamers who usually operate without anyone in sight, a nocturnal secret society shrouded in mystery and whose anonymity is vital for their self preservation. Their name travels widely across the whole city train lines but their identity is never revealed.

“To be a writer is a big secret. It’s the biggest secret that I keep from my parents. You don’t tell many people, you only tell people who you can trust. There’s a big impulse to maintain secrecy.” 
— DUKO.

Over a period of 5 years, Behrendt has gained a prime access to graffiti writers, train and rooftop burners, exposing the mundane portraits of the many anonymous writers of Berlin.
