Radio Benjamin: Demonic Berlin



Reading ETA Hoffmann in secret, Benjamin the child conjures the 'Devil' of Berlin. Storytelling in general is the subject here and Hoffman its master. The uncanny, an unfamiliar familiar, is pursued in the streets of Mitte and the wide Boulevards der Linden by Hoffman. When he wasn't actually pursued by snout nosed creatures on the dark edges of civil society, Berlin's most masterful observer follows strangers on the streets around Alexanderplatz, sketching the future characters of the city that would populate his strange and celebrated urban fantasies.
