An inner craving for burger was seeded deep inside of me back when I was a child. My parents would never let us eat fast food except for on special occasions. So while everyone had a delish Christmas dinner, we ended up stuck with all the other non-Christians at McD’s devouring plastic food like it
Even though this time Germany seems to have a valid chance at grabbing the European Championship Cup, it seems as if the football craze has gone back a step from the heights it reached in 2010. After all, it’s “only” the European finals. Still: many people opt to watch the game with their friends at
What I find especially interesting about the development of a city is to see the changes for myself. I hadn’t lived long enough in Berlin (or long enough in general) to relate to my older and wiser friends about all the things that have been better or worse in the past. People do like to
The news struck us like lightning: GEMA, the German performing right society for music, recently announced a new accounting system to become effective by 2013 which will ruin many clubs by horrendous increase in charges. Yesterday, a crowd of music lovers gathered for a rally to stop this proposal. We paid it a visit.
Sometimes, on any random weekend, it feels like we’ve been everywhere and back. Therefore it can be tough to construct a whole article around one single subject. When there’s so much to do and see – especially in the summer, no matter how rainy or windy it gets – it’s best to just shut up
Midsummer. Most children growing up in Berlin will probably never even know what that word means. They will think: “Summer, oh, that’s just another word for autumn, right?”, because that’s damn straight what it feels like. But once upon a time, even Berlin encountered heat waves. Even I have spent days in the city
When I think of Italy in the summer I have this Retro-Chique picture in my mind. The people wear old-school bathing suits, the cars are still edgy, and the colors are naturally instagrammed. I know it’s a romantic view and a result of cheesy 70’s movies. The real summer beach life in Italy means mostly
If you’ve recently visited the Tempelhofer Park you will most likely have noticed the fifteen gazebos scattered across the fields. They are part of the “The World Is Not A Fair” exhibition of the HAU (Hebbel am Ufer), an artistic project with a twist. Their program is one of self-reflected irony, putting the methods of
There are so many Open Airs in the city… on a good summer day it can be tricky to find out the “right one” . And because of Berlins risky weather situation – from Mauwi to Moscow in 3 seconds – one is tempted to stay in the neighborhood. There’s also no denying that not
Sometimes I find it difficult to put into exact words why Berlin is a good place to live. There are many reasons, sure, but there might be just as many negative points as well. Not having a beach and the constant lousy weather seriously test my limits. There are only so many times that a
Going to a concert might not be the most exciting thing to share across the broad subjects that Berlin has to offer. In this case, I’d like to make an exception. We’ve all been waiting impatiently for the A$AP Rocky gig ever since he blew up last year with his monster tracks Pe$o and Wassup.
Neukölln is not exactly famous for its broad choices in nice parks. With Tempelhof dominating the “park scene” in terms of reputation it always seems like such an effort to discover something new. Tempelhof is big enough for everyone after all. But the Körnerpark is something special indeed, perfectly laid in an up and coming
As some of you may have already found out, a couple of us are students at the Europa Universität Frankfurt Oder, studying Cultural Studies & Sciences. Most of our classes are actually very close to what interests us in our spare time. This semester, Elisa and I have been taking a class on the sociology
Last night we had our very fist print (as in – offline!) exhibition at the temporarily set up football location Studio B in Mitte. When we were asked to participate for one night we decided to use the plattform and the big white walls to put our work on display. During the past two weeks
