Thanks to a grant from the Centre National de l’Audiovisuel, Luxembourg, Claudio Gobbi had the chance to spend a whole summer in Berlin. The focus of the artist´s project, titled Persistence, was the 20th century interiors of cultural public meeting places in Europe, and Berlin was one of the capitals he wished to explore with this topic.
