Architecture

Architecture is what dominates the cityscape. While we don’t majorly focus on architecture as an art, we do respect the trade and obviously – the designed result.

Neuköllns former brewery is now the KINDL Center for Contemporary Art

The former KINDL brewery in Neukölln was transformed into a new center of contemporary art. Why they didn't make it into a straight-up hardcore Techno club, I'll never know.

Traveling through time, space and cultures at the Jewish Museum Berlin

As everyone already knows: I am not a big fan of museums. I like to immerse myself in history, but not necessarily by seeing old items in glass vitrines. That being said, the Jewish Museum is much more than just a display of historical artifacts: it's a highly sensual experience of history in context of art.

Taking an extensive walk through the gay center of Schöneberg

Schöneberg is a blank spot on the map for me, so Fousieh took me out on an autumn walk through one of her favorite districts of Berlin. The weather was grumpy and the mood was eerie, just like Schöneberg kinda is.

Mall of Shame

Now I would've had a couple of ideas on how to make Potsdamer Platz less detached from "real life in Berlin", but apparently, every urban issue can be solved with a - you guessed it - ANOTHER MALL.

Raumverdichtungen #3

In continuation of the Raumverdichtungen seriesJan Herdlicka visited places you come across everyday. In his technical process the obvious dimensional characteristics blur out and only a fraction is left. With this he is questioning the process of memory and the character of the structures surrounding us.

Inside Tempelhof

Tempelhof is not just a park with a different story. It's quite a powerful symbol of modern Berlin. I was lucky to take part in a tour around the insides of the airport, discovering what the former American military base left inside the unused building. Let me tell you: it's as phenomenal from the inside as much as from the outside. Basketball courts and former bowling alleys, little forgotten bunkers and shelters-- had this building not been an airport, it would still be fascinating. I didn't even know the hallways were open to the public (I think you're obliged to book a tour though).
