Cookie Island

I like postcards, especially when they are mysterious and vague. When Cookies Club and No 74 sent out their postcards they knew very well that everyone would be puzzled about the invitation: meet us on an island upcoming Saturday, bring your bathing suits and friends, but we’re not going to let you know just yet

Finding Stockholm – The Aesthetically Pleasing City

30.07.2012 · 4 comments

When we travel, we don’t usually travel big. Instead, we try to focus on what’s “real” about a city, meaning we try to do the things that are of interest to us and want to avoid the conventional tourist traps. Not an easy task, to be honest, especially when you’re not off the beaten track.

car2go Pop Up Store with The Dirty Honkers – Review


As announced last week, the car2go pop up store project opened a new temporary franchise on Bergmannstraße. For their opening they invited the Dirty Honkers, an electro-swing band, to play a free concert. I had the opportunity to check out the location and yep, it’s a perfect spot if you’re planning something big for you

The Dirty Honkers Live at the car2go Pop-Up Store


Imagine you had an event location where you could plan and execute any event you’re planning – for free. The good people of car2go have now realized the concept in different areas of Berlin. Their pop-up store used to be in Prenzlauer Berg, now it’s moving over to the “other” Kreuzberg at Bergmannstraße. Whatever you’re

Since more than 10 years the Total Sellout provides young Graphic Designers and Artists the possibility to exhibit and sell there works. The idea started 2000 in Dresden, nowadays this temporary platform opens also in other cities like Leipzig or Berlin. We have been at Glogauer Straße to see a mix of fresh illustrations, handmade

Real Street Berlin Jam 2012

Somehow Berlin is in no case related to one of the main activities of my childhood – Rollerblading (Yeah – I was a Rollerblader not a Skateboarder). Probably because I got a little to old to jump on every handrail it got less and less that I grabbed my Skates and roll out on the

When Thugs Cry – Muschi Kreuzberg Summer Jam

20.07.2012 · 4 comments

There are parties and then there are parties from which you wake up in the morning thinking “what happened, where am I and why do I have stickers plastered all over my face?” In the latter case, it’s probably the best if you resort to not asking any more of these questions and just get

The U-Bahn-System shapes a lot of places in our city. It has its own architectural rules and often it doesnt care about beauty. Most U-Bahn stations are cold and pragmatic. People rush through them. But nobody can doubt that they create a very unique atmosphere. You go down, into the Untergrund. Jan Herdlicka, whom you

Neukölln’s cleared and abandoned allotment gardens

18.07.2012 · 6 comments

To make room for the planned city highway A100, a vast allotment garden area was cleared two years ago. Construction didn't start yet so that the abandoned gardens and cottages still wait for demolition. We were curious what we'd find there and which stories the place would tell – so we paid it a visit.

Get your guns loaded, kings and queens of the district! Muschi Kreuzberg are holding up everyone you love for ransom: one million and a few dope bitches, just get your ass to the meeting point on Thursday at Prince Charles. If you don’t have the necessary cash – too bad. But if you’re nice to

“Ausgerechnet Freitag der Dreizehnte” – Weißensee Gallery


This week is all in the name of art. After Marcus’ rather elaborate and specific article about the UdK Rundgang – and of course, his magg-nificent pictures as always – I decided to actually share my opinion on the Weißensee exhibition. First of all, I had no expectations. After the liberating chaos and vast possibilities

Ars Electronica – Impetus and Movement

And when the rain begins to fall, I’ll be that girl going from one exhibition to the next. Finally: more time to spend our days and evenings inside enormous cultural hubs, contemplating our lives and the meaning of art in the context of their makers intentions. I’m trying to see the positive in this demonic

UDK Rundgang 2012

UDK – I hate You! For everything you have done to me! Was it worth it? I can’t judge. Are you happy? I don’t know. You steal, you give, you loose. You’re my worst enemy. I’ll always have an eye on you and I judge you in the most subjectiv way. This time you failed
