Nikolaiviertel at night

Nikolaiviertel at night

26.02.2013 · 3 comments

Like most European cities, Berlin has a historical center. And I don't mean that newish stuff around Unter den Linden, I'm talking about the medieval village of today's Nikolaiviertel. I am sure that any tourist can tell more about it than most Berliners, but how many people know about the quiet and shady atmosphere that sets after nightfall?

Tiergarten & Café am Neuen See

15.02.2013 · 2 comments

During the winter time of the year, Tiergarten resembles a mysterious, enchanted forest. It’s vast and so empty. With the occasional runner passing our way, we were basically alone when strolling through the snow-covered grounds. I remember how packed and crowded the park is in the summertime. I don’t like it then, people leave their

SUB:STANCE @ Berghain


In July 2008 the first SUB:STANCE party was held at Berghain. Everyone was nervous. It was a Dubstep party, and Dubstep parties didn’t happen at Berghain. On the lineup were some of the most forward-thinking artists pushing bass frequencies at that time (as well as Scuba): Mala, Shackleton, Appleblim, Distance and T++. But no-one knew

Haus der Kulturen der Welt

07.02.2013 · 4 comments

Haus der Kulturen der Welt. This name is not just weirdly uncomfortable to foreigners, but to German speakers too. Haus der Kulturen der Welt. You'd think that Germans, who like to put words together, would call it "Weltkulturenhaus". It's remote area is pretty exceptional, too. To me, it seems just SO out of the way of anything that you'd have to be really dedicated to go to an event or exhibition. I know I used to pass it on one of my many trips with the designated tourist bus line "100", and keep thinking: man, what the hell, why would they place such a gorgeous object right into the middle of nowhere (and yes, Tiergarten is right in the middle of nowhere to me, because IF IT'S NOT IN KREUZBERG THEN HOW CAN IT EXIST?!). All joking aside, this is an exceptionally important place in Berlin. The Haus der Kulturen der Welt (House of the Cultures of the World - seriously, can we just call it Bert or something from now on? It just feels so cold and impersonal) is an institution full of cultural insights, from concerts to exhibitions to readings to films to conferences and whatever else can be visually exhibited in the "world cultures" context. Remember how everybody went crazy about the Transmediale partys a couple of days ago? Well, if you were so inclined to actually participate rather than just get wasted, you'd have known that the Haus der Kulturen der Welt plays a central role in enabling the exchange of cultural practices, even in music and popculture. Besides, it's one of the last institutions that is still completely funded and commissioned by the state, a growing rarity in Berlin.
