Kisch & Co Bookshop, Berlin, Germany

Apr 23, 2021
This is Thorsten Willenbrock who I had the great pleasure of meeting several months ago for a feature I was writing for ByLine Times (UK) on the Gentrification of Berlin. I often wonder on the huge pressures people must be under when they are fighting the immense wealth of international property speculators just in order to keep a business they have nurtured for over 24 years from being taken away from them because of, well, more profit. My caption attached to this image distributed today by my photo agency in London, eyevine.: Thorsten Willenbrock co owner of the Kreuzberg bookshop Kisch & Co is consoled in the street outside the court after it gave its verdict. Kisch & Co has been a fixture on Oranienstraße in Kreuzberg, Berlin for over 24 years. However, the property was bought up by a real estate fund: Victoria Immo Properties based out of Luxenburg. The new rent asked by the owners was beyond Kisch & Co‘s means and they had requested for an approach that asked an affordable and fair rent for a bookshop, This was rejected by the real estate fund and yesterday the case of dispute ended up at Moabit Criminal Court in Berlin. The courts decision today was as expected: The bookshop must leave the premises in Oranienstraße and also pay the costs of the proceedings.
