It’s interesting to think about how a fine connection sometimes links two different cities. The past of Berlin and Warsaw has certainly bonded one capital with the other. During the Second World War, they have been completely demolished but like two phoenixes they have found the strength to revive from their ashes and now they are still living an intense phase of movement, revitalization and evolution. These cities are culturally and physically very close. The Berlin-Warszawa-Express train covers the distance of 570km in 5 hours and 38 minutes to connect the two capitals. The series that we are showing is a subconscious correlation between Berlin and Warsaw.
