Abandoned Brewery Kopernicker

Following Raphael Rizzo and Fleur V.O Brummel as they paint they’re way through the abandoned shell of the Bårenquell beer brewery located in Kopernicker, in East Berlin.

Unable to compete in the open market after the fall of the Berlin wall, the brewery closed its doors on April 1st 1994, at this point the Brewery has been in operation for 112 years. Since closing it has remained as a place frequented by street artists, urban explorers and squatters alike. What was once a booming loud brewery is now a muted, colourful crustacean.
