KREUZBERGED: BERLIN COMPANION

Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin

“KÜNSTLERBLUT” – FROM OSKAR MESSTER´S FILM STUDIOS IN KREUZBERG

As a little follow-up to the post about Kreuzberg film studios of Oskar Messter, here is a song from his 1909 film Künstlerblut: Gassenbubenlied filmed in Blücherstrasse 31/32 and produced by Messter´s Projection GmbH.

The artist performing it is Alexander Girardi whose Vienna recording dating back to 1906 was used to make this video. The original film was most probably made during his stay in Berlin two years later.
