Maybe you don’t know, but not all exotic people who live in Berlin are human beings. Some of them are from the Andromeda Galaxy and we call them Wesen. Since back there they have creative professions, they use to go for a sabbatical in other planets in order to broad their minds and help them generate new ideas. From time to time, an expedition full of new Wesen arrives through a secret portal in Berlin.
Ligia Fascioni and Nicole Plauto idealized the wesen.berlin to offer a totally different way of bringing home a souvenir from the German capital. The project brings together storytelling, illustration, photography, culture, social media, tourism and history, as well as appreciation and respect for diversity.
The Wesen can’t speak, but they share their day-to-day life in Berlin and can be followed on Facebook and Instagram. In the social networks, they present nice places, museums, cafés, galleries, parties, parks, people, shows, and so on, with a curious, innocent and prejudice-free point of view. Humans can ask questions and interact as well. They took the form of plush toy arts to absorb experiences more efficiently, as well as being more friendly and comfortable to humans.
The entrepreneurs are developing a cloning technique, so that in the near future, people can take their favorite Wesen home and help them to acquire new experiences. In addition, new expeditions can arrive at any moment.
So, take a look at the reasons why you should definitely get to know the sarcastic Helga, a Cosmic History Teacher, the intelligent Jean-Pierre, an Artificial Geniosity Developer, and the fun Mia, Choreographer of News:
