Erwachsen oder sowas

Sort of Grown Up

Marlena Molitor


Two friends chill out above the rooftops of the city. What will they do after graduation? Unclear. »Many others don’t have a plan either.« The two are not uncritical of the constant uploading of pictures on Insta: »First I post and then I wait for the comments underneath. It’s such a blatant self-affirmation.«

Growing up is a rollercoaster ride, it’s exhausting. Finding a flat, earning money, boys and sexuality. Everything is complicated, but also somehow magical. Summer in Berlin. Time to go dancing.
