REPUBLIK 21/ DER SPIEGEL - Friends of Friends / Freunde von Freunden (FvF)


DER SPIEGEL talk series—Republik 21— was a platform to explore the vision of young politicians just before the German elections of 2021.

In September of the same year, Friends of Friends and nine2one collaborated to produce two 45-minute digital live talks at the Friends Space in Kreuzberg. In these ‘SPIEGEL Live’ sessions, young politicians were invited to address their generation’s goals and future, ranging from climate change to soaring rents in Germany.

For this series, Friends of Friends oversaw direction, set design, and technical execution. The talk format was broadcast live on DER SPIEGEL.

Professional lighting, multiple cameras, and audio recording techniques were set up to create a striking scene at the Friends Space.
