Berlin Careers in April: A.F.H. – The Culture Writers Agency

Have you fallen in love with Berlin and began thinking about staying longer or returning to the city after graduation? You are not alone. A number of former NYU Berlin students have moved to Berlin or visiting the city on a regular basis as part of research or job related travel. Beginning this April, we will highlight some of the inspiring and successful projects our Berliners at Heart are pursuing under the category “Berlin Careers.”

A.F.H. – The Culture Writers Agency was founded by a former NYU Berlin professor and two former students. The writers edit, author, and ghostwrite texts in the areas of art, fashion, film, and design. They help artists to bring across the stories behind their works and to reach an international audience and the media. In addition, they also provide consultancy services to members of the creative scene.

The writers hold degrees from renowned universities, e.g. NYU, La Sorbonne, Oxford University, or Yale. Their texts have appeared in widely read online and print publications such as The New York Times, Vogue,, or The Wallstreet Journal.
