The best places in Berlin are now marked as such by students of Communication in Social and Economic Contexts (Gesellschafts- und Wirtschaftskommunikation, GWK) at the Berlin University of the Arts (Universität der Künste Berlin, UdK)!
The group placed several controversial posters throughout the entire city, presenting slogans like
- U8 is the best place for buying heroin in Berlin. Amen.,
- Mustafas is the best place for waiting in line in Berlin. Amen.,
- Kastanienallee is the best place for dying on your fixi in Berlin ever. Amen. or
- Revaler Straße is the best Technostrich ever. Amen.
For those of you who already visited Berlin, these best places in Berlin should not be that unfamiliar…
The entire project is some kind of viral marketing for the hyped German start-up www.getamen.com, so keep that in mind before sharing it was the rest of the world! Here is some info about the university course:
GWK is an interdisciplinary study course, bringing together from a variety of other disciplines what it is that communication drives and influences. Among other things it takes into account the roles played by Communication Science, Psychology, Sociology, Media Research, Reception and Reception Research, Marketing, Communication Planning, Organizational Communication, Public Relations, Text Theory, Text Layout, Design using Film, Video, Computer, Internet, Multi-vision and Sound.
