Blind spots: a story about displacement in Berlin – a cartoon

Blind Spots was created as part of a workshop by the Museum of Communication Berlin and Deutscher Comicverein. Hoping to shed light on the spiralling costs of rent in Berlin, Jessika Knauer and Alexander Bednarz have put the focus on the often invisible people behind housing policy decisions.

Alexander Bednarz is a draftsman and illustrator from Bochum. More of his work is available on Facebook and Instagram. Jessika Knauer works as a freelance author in Berlin; more about her can be found on her website. “Blind Spots” was her first foray into the world of comic journalism.
