Amanda

15.06.2018

Amanda sagt: "Ich interessiere mich sehr für Sprachen. Ich liebe es, Gedichte in Originalsprachen zu lesen, das ist eine echte Leidenschaft von mir. Gegenwärtig versuche ich, Russisch zu lernen, und eines Tages ist es mein Ziel, Dostojewski im russischen Original zu lesen", sagt Amanda. Amanda Martikainen kommt aus Finnland und studiert Operngesang an der "Hochschule für Musik und Theater" in Leipzig. Sie spricht sechs Sprachen, und ihr großer Traum ist es, eines Tages viel Zeit in Tibet zu verbringen. Zur Zeit ist sie oft als Gastsolistin unterwegs, um ein Netzwerk aufzubauen und Berufserfahrung zu sammeln. Ein Thema, das sie sehr beschäftigt ist, dass die meisten Dirigenten männlich sind. Sie findet, dass der Markt noch sehr konservativ ist. Die wenigen Frauen, die in ihrem Geschäft arbeiten, werden immer wieder betont. Aber der klassische Markt sollte sich von diesen konservativen Zwängen befreien, die sie auch nicht so ganz versteht, weil alle, die sie kennt, die in diesem Beruf arbeiten, sind eigentlich sehr zukunftsorientiert und modern. Sie selbst hat noch nie mit einer Dirigentin gearbeitet, was sie schade findet. Amanda hat oft die Erfahrung, gemacht, dass Musik, die von Frauen gespielt wird, viel ganzheitlicher verstanden wird, und sie würde sich sehr freuen nur mit Frauen zu musizieren. Ihre Ziele erklärt sie so: "Wenn ich musiziere, dann tue ich das mit viel Leidenschaft. Der Erfahrungsaustausch mit anderen Musikerinnen und Musikern ist für mich sehr wichtig. Es ist ein Gemeinschaftsgefühl, deshalb würde ich mich sehr freuen, wenn ich mich an einem Opernhaus engagieren könnte, denn dann könnte ich langfristig mit Kollegen zusammenarbeiten", erklärt sie.

Buki

31.05.2018

“I’m kind of totally accurate, but I’m also kind of totally free.” Even as a small child, Buki Akomolafe had a passion for fashion. No wonder if you grow up between sewing machines! She lived with her family until she was six years old in VPP Nigeria where her father has an NGO that supports people in taking care of themselves. The main focus was on agriculture but there was also a women’s workshop that her mother set up where fabrics were woven and clothes were sewn. In her collections Buki combines Nigerian joie de vivre and German precision in a unique way. In her small studio in Berlin Kreuzberg she designs and produces her high quality limited edition collections from colorful African wax print fabrics. When she is in Nigeria, she very often has to justify the way she dresses: “Then there are always discussions, you are not allowed to walk around like this, as a woman you have to be like that. I always go into confrontation and I think this is what I put into practice in my fashion. One of my themes is to show the world that a woman doesn’t necessarily have to be dressed in just one way. But I don’t want to be instructive because certain cultural aspects are simply different there. For example, my clothes are all long and cover certain parts of the body that should be covered when you live in Nigeria. However I don’t think it’s okay that many women there are not allowed to wear pants. Pants are important for a better freedom of movement. That is why I make long pants.”

Constanze

04.11.2019

Constanze lives with her family in Alt-Stralau/ Berlin when she’s not flying around the world to stop climate change. She works for adelphi, a think tank that provides sustainable development solutions to governments, international organizations, businesses and civil society actors. As project leader of ICAP*, she moderates the exchange of experience between more than thirty governments and contributes to the global importance of CO2 pricing. She sees this as a core element in fulfilling the requirements of the Paris Agreement. “Fridays for Future” gives her hope. Governments must finally understand that they are not acting against the will of the voters if they do more for climate protection. “It is up to the individual to enable politicians to set the right framework conditions. We won’t solve the problem with individual renunciation,” she says. “We have too few positive scenarios for a life in 2050. How can a world with a lot of climate protection and resource protection, not just renunciation, look like? How can climate protection be shaped in a socially just way?” You start dreaming when you talk to Constanze about possible cities of the future, about their smell, their taste, about vertical gardens and garden roofs, about a lot of space in the city that belongs to the people again because we would have largely banned cars. Her wish for the future is that we can work much more concretely on these solutions and hand this world over to our children with the feeling that we have at least started to clean up the crap we caused.

Franziska

15.08.2019

Franziska, who lives with her husband and child in Berlin Kreuzberg and is a freelance photographer, says: “Clothes are not so important to me. At the end of the day I want to be dressed nicely but it has to be comfortable and warm enough. I don’t buy much, but when I do it’s rather expensive and I wear it forever. I find shopping exhausting and I am happy when clothes find their way to me without me having to go shopping. I also try to consume little, eat consciously and healthy and waste little. Right now I’m just looking forward to going back to work soon after the baby break as well as holidays at the Sea!

Isabel

04.12.2019

Isabel ist Produktdesignerin und wohnt seit einem Jahr in Berlin. Sie ist viel unterwegs und arbeitet oft an mehreren Projekten gleichzeitig. Gerade hat sie eine Kollaboration mit einer Leuchtenmanufaktur abgeschlossen, die Einrichtung für einen Brillenladen designt und für einen österreichischen Seilbahnhersteller gearbeitet. Sie liebt es, Dinge mit ihren Händen zu schaffen und da momentan die Arbeit am Rechner überwiegt, repariert sie zum Ausgleich am Wochenende ihr Fahrrad selber.
Im Produktdesign fand sie die perfekte Mischung ihrer Interessen: Die Liebe zum Gestalten und eine starke Faszination für das Technische. Trotzdem stellt sie sich immer wieder die Sinnfrage: „Leben wir nicht in einer Welt, in der es eigentlich schon viel zu viel gibt und man jetzt sofort aufhören sollte Neues zu schaffen? Andererseits,“ findet sie, „können gut designte Gegenstände ein sehr langes Leben haben. Designer haben die Möglichkeit Innovation voranzubringen, durch kreative, unkonventionelle Lösungsvorschläge. Wir brauchen diese in einer Welt mit rapide wachsenden Problemen dringend.“ So einen kreativen Lösungsvorschlag verfolgt Isabel auch als Teil des Vereins „Stadtlücken e.V.“, den sie vor einigen Jahren mit Freunden in Stuttgart gründete. Eine Gruppe engagierter Menschen ergreift hier die Initiative, um in einer verspekulierten Stadt Bewusstsein zu schaffen für gemeinsamen Raum und ein Recht auf Stadt. Ungenutzte Bereiche im Stadtsystem sollen zugänglich gemacht werden für die BewohnerInnen und deren wahre Bedürfnisse. Es geht darum sich auszutauschen, kennenzulernen und Zusammenleben immer wieder neu zu verhandeln.

Kristina

06.06.2019

Kristina, owner of the actors agency GOLD BERLIN, lives with her two daughters and two cats in Prenzlauer Berg and says: “I have a heart for good, comfortable clothes, classic cuts and beautiful materials. My style is simple and unagitated and I always stay true to myself. Fashion trends don’t interest me even though they do influence me and become a part of my style. I don’t care which designer started which trend, I find the word must-have is a stupid term and I never read fashion magazines. What I find much more exciting are the socio-cultural aspects of clothing, why do people wear certain things, what do they want to say about themselves with clothing? I’m very concerned about sustainability, I don’t want my children to blame me one day for taking part in the chaos we left behind. We no longer own a car, avoid air travel and mainly buy organic food. I find it difficult to part with things, and for this reason alone I pay attention to good quality and longevity. I do not want to consume something of which the production makes man, animal and environment suffer.

Lena

01.10.2019

Lena is currently graduating in architecture from the UDK, a dream she wanted to fulfill after working as a physiotherapist for several years. 
While she learned a lot about herself and her own body through physiotherapy, in architecture she now concentrates on creating spaces in which the body can feel comfortable. “In both professions it is first about the training of hands and eyes and about observing,” she says. For Lena, observing also means repeatedly breaking out of the familiar and expanding her horizons through travel, getting to know new perspectives. She recently returned from a semester abroad in Japan. Fascinated, she tells of the differences between Japan and Germany in terms of people and space. She talks about the small, colourfully mixed carpet of buildings that make up Tokyo, about the reduced interior design that has become a tradition in Japan due to frequent earthquakes, and about the restraint of the people who, despite the high population density, make the metropolis of Tokyo appear relaxed in comparison to chaotic Berlin. Sooner or later Lena wants to leave Berlin anyway, because she notices increasingly that she prefers a life close to nature to the hustle and bustle of the big city.

Luna

08.07.2019

Luna, who comes from Spain and studies fine arts in Berlin, says: “For me, fashion is a non-verbal communication that shows others who we are. I would say that I have two main tendencies when it comes to my clothes: wide baggy style clothes, which I almost always steal from my partner, and feminine, figure-hugging dresses and skirts. But it depends on what I do during the day, I don’t have to look nice to go shopping in the supermarket. Sometimes I really only wear what I find in the wardrobe and that’s usually second hand. For me sustainability means not damaging the planet we live on unnecessarily and I try to buy only the things I love.

Zenib

5.10.2018

„I think happiness is being close to the earth and appreciating it.“ Zenib is 31 years old and spends most of her time in the kitchen. She left Philadelphia, her home town, six years ago to start a new life in Berlin. Now she works as a chef in a restaurant in Schöneberg, 12 hours a day and says that this fits her personality. She originally comes from Pakistan and when they left her Mom did not know what American food was. She always cooked Pakistani food so other kids would make fun of Zenib and her sister not having peanut-butter and jelly sandwiches. So her mother would start to make a mixture of Pakistani and American food which was horrible but it was something Zenib loved. The older she got the more she understood how important food is. She wanted to know more and more where it comes from and she wanted to buy local and regional in order to reduce her carbon foot print. Zenibs mom passed away five years ago and cooking is a way for her to stay connected to her mother. She considers herself American over Pakistani but thinks identity is a crazy thing. Pakistan is a problematic but very beautiful country to her. „They want to develop very quickly but there is nothing in place. Garbage is blowing everywhere, the water is bad, there is over population, there is fast development, but people are still living in villages with no power.“ But still she wants her future kids to speak the language and to know the food, because for Zenib food is such an important part of cultural identity
