The other Karneval: Culture goes underground

Subversive, subterranean, sublime: While almost all of Berlin was over in Kreuzberg watching samba dancers at Karneval der Kulturen, I was exploring a lesser-known festival of alternative culture and living models, Karneval der Subkulturen. Punks, rastas, squatters, musicians and all sorts of free spirits gathered to march against gentrification and celebrate the unique, the funky, the anti-capitalistic. Read about it and check out my photos from the event over on Slow Travel Berlin!
