In August 2020, a group of more or less eccentric people and places came together under the motto "Ich sehe was, was du nicht siehst und das ist…" (I spy with my little eye...). Six filmmakers - three of them LaborBerlin members - set out to explore the Badstraßenkiez in Wedding. Equipped with a Super 8 camera and a sound recorder, they portrayed people who live and work in the neighborhood. In the third edition of Out of Focus LaborBerlin, we will show these cinematic portraits as works-in-progress accompanied by a live soundtrack and performance. We invite you to reflect on the relationship between laboratory and film, collective and individual, protagonists and filmmakers in a city that has more than one center.


  1. deviating from an established or usual pattern or style
  2. [mathematics] located elsewhere than at the geometric center
