Teufelsberg (German for Devil's Mountain) is an artificial hill in the Grunewald locality of former West Berlin. It rises about 80 metres above the surrounding Brandenburg plain and it was bulit with part of the rubble of Berlin from the WWII.
Under the debris there's the never completed Nazi military-technical college (Wehrtechnische Fakultät) designed by Albert Speer. The Allies tried using explosives to demolish the school, but it was so sturdy that covering it with debris turned out to be easier.
It is famous for its abandoned US. Listening station (rumored to be part of the global ECHELON intelligence gathering network).
The station continued to operate until the fall of East Germany and the Berlin Wall, but after that the station was closed and the equipment removed. The buildings and radar domes still remain in place.

Those images belong to a time where the place was abandoned and free, was a gathering and an experimental place, we participated in exhibitions and performances. Today however the place has been privatized, it feels like a scam to me, as it is not possible to go on top of the tower and at the ticket entrance there is no information about this very important detail.

In the pictures, the Korean dancer Wooguru Kw. "He is a dancer free and for with his own body, altered by a traumatic head injury, followed by spinal deformity, yet with which his dancing all began. Rehabilitation (stretched over a decade) from a series of injuries and neurological complications he had gone through was complicated. But it eventually became a unique set of empirical knowledge – which has been further examined and explored with a biomechanical approach to his condition over the past decade. 
His dance works were supported and presented by various international organisations, such as TANZTAGE BERLIN 2014, Moving poets 2013-2016 (in Germany and the USA, worked with Till Schmidt-Rimpler, a former principal of the Dutch opera and North Carolina theatre in the USA), NYTKE 2019, in Tampere, Finland, etc. And he was invited to present his education project (conducted in Germany, Norway, Latvia, Lithuania, and S. Korea between 2016 and 2019) at the GTF symposium 2018 (the German Association for Dance Science), Seoul Dance Center 2016-17, etc."
