FOCUS: "Moscow! Hello! Goodbye!" by Andreas Herzoug

"In the 20s, Egon Erwin Kisch, considered to be the creator of literary reportage, described Moscow as follows:…”orgy of contrast, Asian villages with American skyscraper houses, Tinker toy cars and limousine buses, baroque palaces and wooden shacks, street bazaars and shopping centers”. This description pretty much still applies. Maybe the city has become more brutal, more crowded, more hectic, more wealthy, more impoverished, more motorized, but also more modern, open, and more melancholic than ever before."
