Walking in big cities, Berlin literature in the 21st century, Berlin literature around 1930, Hanns Zischler, Tanja Dückers

Resumé

Two contemporary German books – Hanns Zischler‘s Berlin ist zu groß für Berlin (2013) and Tanja Dückers‘ Mein altes West-Berlin (2016) – express the criticism that inhabitants of big cities have stopped walking. The main subject in these texts is the walk in Berlin without having a specific purpose. The big city Berlin is considered a space of formation that should be ‘read’ to disclose history. The article examines if Zischler’s and Dückers’ walk is merely a part of a nostalgic culture of remembrance or still is a current way to move around in contemporary Berlin physically and intellectually.
