Mall of Berlin & Potsdamer Platz-7442

Mall of Shame

16.12.2014
Whatever you may think about the Pots­damer Platz, at night some of it’s hor­rible plan­ning and invas­ive archi­tec­ture regain dig­nity through the mes­mer­iz­ing lights. If any­thing, it’s as close as we can get to the stand­ard image of the big city. Although I am hardly ever there, I still secretly enjoy the atmosphere. Now I would’ve had a couple Read more…

10 things to do in Winter in Berlin

09.12.2014 · 5 comments

There is at least one great thing about winter in Ber­lin: I stop being the only one without a taste in fash­ion. Since every­body is wrapped in lay­ers and lay­ers of func­tional cloth­ing (which is incid­ent­ally only sold in bright neon col­ors) and hik­ing boots, I can finally pre­tend to have the same level of style aware­ness as

As some of you might now already, I call the beau­ti­ful coun­try of Aus­tria my home­land. And let me tell you: us Aus­tri­ans get a lot of ste­reo­types thrown at our heads. Among them are us lov­ing yodel­ing, every­one being king at winter sports, and an affin­ity for base­ments – but not in a good way. Of course these are

Finding Detroit

It has been almost a year since Mar­cus and I vis­ited Detroit (remem­ber Mar­cus’ impres­sions of the city?). It was the last des­tin­a­tion of a road trip we did for a small video pro­duc­tion. I’d wanted to share my impres­sions before, but time passed and it seemed wrong to post these icey pic­tures in the begin­ning of spring. We

Act Nat­ural is the first col­lab­or­at­ive pro­ject by Charles Ben­jamin and Egon Elluit. They premiered it on 17th septem­ber in the souvenir space and released it on you­tube. Act Nat­ural is a 10 track album pro­duced by Egon Elluit and accom­pan­ied by a visual concept. Their approach circles around the reflec­tion of the medium itself. Mov­ing

Scroll down for Eng­lish version. Ber­lin gilt als Hoch­burg und Heimathafen für all diejeni­gen, die einen kreat­iven Spiel­platz suchen, um ihre Ideen und Träume zu real­is­ieren. Nicht umsonst dient die Stadt als Nähr­boden für Start-ups und One-Man-Projekte. Sie dür­fen wild sein, ver­rückt, uner­war­tet – und manch­mal braucht es viel Mut, um sie

After 4 years of get­ting deeply into pho­to­graphy, the time has come to step back, pause and con­tem­plate. My first book I is the attempt to find the essence of my pho­to­graphic pur­suit and gave me the chance to look at the work I have done so far from the per­spect­ive of a spec­tator. The first chapter is

House of Small Wonder

A boho-vintage café serving Amer­ican brunch with a twist of Japan­ese cuisine in Berlin-Mitte. Wait– what? You heard right: House of Small Won­der is the work of hus­band and wife duo Shaul Mar­gulies and Motoko Watanbe, who have man­aged to fuse Amer­ican and Japan­ese dishes suc­cess­fully in their first café in Brook­lyn, New York.

Right now, I am sick for the 100th time this year. And while I really love to spend hours watch­ing Sat­urday Night Live clips on You­tube, my sick head just starts to hurt after star­ing at a screen for too long. What else is to do there, you might ask. Well, my dear friends: there actu­ally exists a world

Kimchi Princess Lunch

17.11.2014

Mat­thias just returned from his vaca­tion in Seoul and he brought back with him (amongst an AWESOME selfie-stick and vari­ous weird but deli­cious snacks) many memor­ies of a won­der­ful time, spent mostly with the indul­gence of Kim­chi. I am very envi­ous. Trav­el­ing, to me, is a sport based on culin­ary exper­i­ences. It’s my favor­ite thing in the

Winter is com­ing, my fel­low Ber­liners, and with that comes the time of the year that keeps me from leav­ing my house to do the gro­cery shop­ping. Which means I usu­ally just quickly head to the super­mar­ket on my way home to get the same five ingredi­ents to pre­pare the same five dishes all over again.

Mobile phone apps are a curse and a bless­ing. But some­times they can be quite inter­est­ing, at least for a while. Location-based apps like Yik Yak (one that isn’t par­tic­u­larly pop­u­lar in Ber­lin yet, but I hope this will change) have the poten­tial to con­trib­ute to what hap­pens around the city in far more spon­tan­eous and flex­ible ways than

Lichtgrenze: 25 Jahre Mauerfall

10.11.2014 · 4 comments

Well, talk about anti-climax… For the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Ber­lin Wall, the city had planned a very intriguing and fant­astic concept: the Licht­grenze, a wall con­struc­ted of bal­loons that lit up the former bor­der between West-Berlin and the GDR. After two days of illu­min­at­ing (and thereby remem­ber­ing) the divi­sion, the
