VACANCE/VACANCY #01 Berlin Tabloid

2021年、コロナ禍とオリンピックの余波に喘ぐ夏の東京から16日のエスケープをしにベルリンへやってきた写真家・相澤有紀。1年以上ドイツ・ベルリンに生活することで、街に対する新鮮な感覚を失っていた編集者・冨手公嘉。長きにわたるロックダウンや緊急事態宣言でそう簡単には往来できなかった東京とベルリン。1年以上振りの再会後、お互いの視点を借りながら、街を、感情を、回遊する。まるで何事もなかったかのように夏を満喫するベルリンの人々とそれに圧倒される相澤。相澤に触発され新鮮な眼差しを取り戻した冨手。相澤に借りた写真で彼の背中を追い、エッセイ「駆け上がる空白の季節/ A Vacant Season To Run Away」をバイリンガルでまとめた。心の動きを見つめ直すように、ベルリンの街を旅行者・生活者2つの視点で、都市研究家・田中堅大が彼らの思考の断片や感情の揺らぎをタブロイドの紙面にデザインした。ベルリンの書店のみならず、日本でも展開予定。

In 2021, Yuki Aizawa, a photographer, comes to Berlin for a 16 days escape from the summer in Tokyo, which is still suffering from the Corona disaster and the aftermath of the Olympic Games, and Hiroyoshi Tomite, an editor, who has been living in Berlin for over a year and has lost his fresh sense of the city. After a long period of lockdowns and emergency declarations, Tokyo and Berlin have not been so easy to get back and forth, but after more than a year, they meet again and, borrowing from each other's point of view, migrate through the city and its emotions. Aizawa is overwhelmed by the people of Berlin, who enjoy their summer as if nothing had happened. Tomite, inspired by Aizawa, regains a fresh perspective. He followed his footsteps with Camera borrowed from Aizawa, and compiled a bilingual essay entitled "A Vacant Season To Run Away". As if to reexamine the movements of the mind, urban researcher Kenta Tanaka has designed a tabloid newspaper that captures the fragments of thoughts and emotions of Berliners from the two perspectives of traveller and consumer. The book will be available not only in bookstores in Berlin, but also in Japan.

The titles "VACANCE" and "VACANCY" are derived from the same word, and are a positive interpretation of the irony of the diametrically opposed moods of the Corona pandemic. Following the Berlin edition, the Tokyo edition will be published as issue #2 in early 2022.
