hamburg – st paulis
Originally uploaded by deity.

This is an old theatre that has been occupied as a squat for years. It is right in the heart of St Pauli. It has been the site of an almost constant battle between the inhabitants and the local council. However, recently a private philanthropist resolved the argument by buying the building from the council and giving it to the squatters. The squatters have now turned it into a public space that gets used for parties, public meetings and activist get togethers.

    Hey Paula!

    I remember this place well – it was the focal point for the annual transvestites ball and march last year. I cant claim to have been there for the festivities, but the building itself is amazing, and we got beers to go and sit outside it especially.
