Episode 06: Sarah Pepin
Sarah Pepin is a Berlin-based culture journalist who I met at the 2017 Berlinale.
On visiting her apartment I encountered an impressive ornate old wooden sideboard which had belonged to her grandmother. It had recently been sent on an 800km journey from Sarah’s original home of Luxembourg to her new one in Berlin.
Naturally I wondered if there might be a “bigger” story behind it, and whether it might hold the same kind of meaning my Mum’s Tupperware does for me.
Instead Sarah offers a surprising “counter” perspective on ‘why not’ to love precious objects!
