BERLIN - DELHI Crossroads Nr.2

This time Priya sent a drawing first:
"Hello Ulli, Here's one for you :)
Spotted this boy selling roasted corn. The text in Hindi says 'Butta mil gaya' - translated as 'I got corn' and is a pun on a popular old hindi movie song."

Let's see, which opponent I can find in Berlin for the corn seller. 

He runs less than he stands. The Grillrunner at Alexanderplatz has to carry his shop entirely on his body. He would loose his license to sell hot sausages, if he'd sit down or props up the grill anyhow. 
While waiting for costumers in the hot midsummer sun, he is entertaining himself by drumming a techno beat with his tongs.

BERLIN - DELHI Crossroads Nr.1

Priya Kuriyan draws portraits of people in Delhi since years and so does Ulli Lust in Berlin. They met this spring in India and decided to beginn a visual dialog: One sees an interesting person and sends the drawing to the other one to find an opponent on the other side of the planet.

We proudly start the series now! Music please!

 June 2016, Eberswalder Strasse, Berlin on a sunday afternoon
