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.

Lehrter 17 Project Space

Next week­end (11. 09. — 14. 09. 2014) our beloved under­dog dis­tricts Wed­ding and Moabit will trans­form into the cul­tural cen­ter of Ber­lin. At more than 300 dif­fer­ent loc­a­tions, vis­it­ors will be able to see and hear read­ings, per­form­ances, movies, exhib­i­tions, con­certs and hap­pen­ings. Lofts, gal­ler­ies and ateliers will open their doors to show off what they’ve got. To cel­eb­rate the re-discovery of Wed­ding and Moabit, we will be present­ing a couple of extraordin­ary loc­a­tions to you over the next week, from res­taur­ants to hot­spots and a list of events that you def­in­itely shouldn’t miss dur­ing the KULTURFESTIVAL WEDDINGMOABIT. The Lehrter 17 project space will soon cease to exist. Only planned for one year, the space was used as party floor, gallery and functional space for concerts, meetings and cultural gatherings. Because the whole commercial building will be torn down to make way for the new "Europa City" (a new Berlin-Dubai sort of quarter that is supposed to be constructed around the dead Hauptbahnhof area and is bound to make me & any Berlin lover cringe), the Lehrter 17 was never anything but a temporary shop, set up to deliver and known to vanish. Like most cultural efforts in Berlin. Even if you've never been there and don't feel like checking it out during the Kulturfestival, it's projects like this that really represent the volatility of urban development. And there's a cap limit: as soon as all those empty rooms are replaced by conceptional town-houses and sleek offices, there'll be no more (or nothing even remotely affordable). The project space Lehrter 17 will be open during the Kulturfestival WeddingMoabit. It's at the same address as the EXIT Game, so if you get bored at some point, move over and have yourself a real life escaping game.
