Stine Marie Jacobsen lives in one of the most beautiful and old courtyards of Greifswalder Strasse. For “Die Balkone” she used her window  to communicate about her ongoing engagement with German language and on the conditions of artistic immigration that she materialized with her book “German for Artists”. With an A4 imprinted with the joke  “Meine Wasserskulptur ist kaputt. Der Wasser fliesst von meiner Skulptur wie mein Geld von der Bank,” on her studio windows to trigger the conversation, she invited her visitors into a conversation about German as a love language making them part of her research into her next book ‘German for Lovers’.
