SUBCULTOURS BERLINOSCOPE #6 - SCHILLERKIEZ
Exploring Neukölln with Keegan Luttrell, a multimedia artist from Tennessee, is like hanging out with your cool best friend.
Keegan has traveled the world and shown her art in some incredible places, and yet remains super down to earth and has the best energy to keep you moving through the eclectic streets of Neukölln on a rainy day. Before moving to Berlin, Keegan lived in Oakland, California where she completed her MFA in sculpture at Mills College. After graduation, Keegan moved to a remote mountain town in Switzerland, and most recently a village in Myanmar where she spent her time teaching and learning about the local cultures. Her experiences in Myanmar and her own exploration into self protection, inspired her latest installation, Armour, which just wrapped in Berlin.
Back from her travels, Keegan is now working on her ceramics, performance art, and developing photo collages of Berlin. Before I jump into some of the places I visited with Keegan, you can join her on a tour of Neukölln and create your own collages by signing up for her subcutlours. It was one of the best days I’ve spent in Berlin and so worth collaborating with a truly talented soul.
End the afternoon with toast from Roamers
By far this was one of my favourite places to eat in Berlin. This rustic café was the perfect place to nestle in with a cup of tea, toast and end our day with great conversations. We tried the avocado bread and the beetroot with goat cheese bread. Both on sourdough with fantastic flavours. Make sure to check out the quirky, handmade postcards on the walls!
Thanks a lot Keegan for sharing with us your favourite places in your hood! :)
