last station of the european x-mas tour was berlin, graffiti metropolis of germany. there were some good spots to place the cardborards, of course at the east side gallery. this is a part of the berlin wall, still existing and full of graffiti painted after the berlin wall came down. the cardboards i left where picked up very quickly, so have fun with them at home! another good spot was the alexanderplatz in the heart of the city and the area around the “hackesche hoefe” and some parts in the west berlin centre.

osnabrück, a german town in the northwest, nearly half the way between amsterdam and berlin was the 3rd station of the x-mas tour. people thinking more about their x-mas presesents than about what´s going on in the world. i placed the cardboards in some special places: opposite the “steigenberger hotel remarque”, the entrance to the main church the dom, the high street, the christmas market and the university.
