AXE BLACK SHIRT RELEASE PARTY

01.04.2015 · 2 comments

Don’t we all love a little turn up on a Tues­day? The AXE Black Shirt Release party at favor­ite Kreuzberg one-stop for soph­ist­ic­ated drinks and food, Parker Bowles, was delivered in what I like to call “räudi­ger Manier”: black drinks, black food, all black guests and most of them blacked out by the end of the night. The AXE

AXE BLACK: Understatement by German Garment

27.03.2015 · 6 comments

At any time in fash­ion his­tory (I know a lot about fash­ion his­tory), black was always the new black. It may always sym­bol­ize the same thing (namely “I don’t know how to dress right so I’ll just opt for the one thing that always works”), but espe­cially ridicu­lously col­or­ful dressed men can profit from this easy

short notice: Milena Auilar at Museum Neukölln

28.01.2015

Most people are sur­prised to hear that Neuk­ölln has its very own museum. Even more if they real­ize that it is not the kind of cheesy “Heimat­mu­seum” they expect. Actu­ally Museum Neuk­ölln has a young team with an fresh approach. They cur­ate very dif­fer­ent works which circle around the many nuances of Ber­lins notori­ous neigh­bor­hood. This month Museum

CTM x Transmediale 2015: Event Recommendations

21.01.2015 · One comment

A new year, a new num­ber, an old routine. 2015 just kicked off and we are already facing dozens of events that will accel­er­ate the rhythm of the city back to its reg­u­lar hec­tic pace. CTM x Trans­me­diale seem to be the most inter­est­ing of these fest­iv­it­ies yearn­ing for atten­tion. Since 1999, CTM and trans­me­diale have been tak­ing place in

Mobile phone apps are a curse and a bless­ing. But some­times they can be quite inter­est­ing, at least for a while. Location-based apps like Yik Yak (one that isn’t par­tic­u­larly pop­u­lar in Ber­lin yet, but I hope this will change) have the poten­tial to con­trib­ute to what hap­pens around the city in far more spon­tan­eous and flex­ible ways than
25 Jahre Mauerfall-6928

Lichtgrenze: 25 Jahre Mauerfall

10.11.2014 · 4 comments

Well, talk about anti-climax… For the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Ber­lin Wall, the city had planned a very intriguing and fant­astic concept: the Licht­grenze, a wall con­struc­ted of bal­loons that lit up the former bor­der between West-Berlin and the GDR. After two days of illu­min­at­ing (and thereby remem­ber­ing) the divi­sion, the bal­loons went up

short notice is a new tag in which we will reg­u­larly intro­duce things, events, people or products in a brief man­ner because they really mean some­thing to us. they are depic­tions of our per­sonal tastes and will not neces­sar­ily have any­thing to do with ber­lin, but instead with our lives and with the things we want to

Bar & Food Night at Neue Heimat

20.10.2014 · One comment

To trans­form an old rail­way sta­tion into an urban space for con­certs, street food and hap­pen­ings of diverse nature is a very good idea in and of itself already. But the Neue Heimat venue has actu­ally also brought life into an almost for­got­ten area of the city, too (for­got­ten by me, mostly). Every street between Warschauer

Ber­lins culin­ary ver­sat­il­ity is grow­ing. You can see new (concept) res­taur­ants and pop up bars appear on every corner. There are many who com­plain about the so-called demise of Ber­lins under­ground vibe. But if you’ve been eat­ing out in this city long enough, you’ll surely appre­ci­ate the rising num­ber of decent res­taur­ants. Ber­lin has become

Snapshots from “Plötzlich am Meer” Festival

30.09.2014

Two things con­vinced me to go to another fest­ival in my life­time: the Baltic Sea and the people who were com­mit­ted to going with me. Although I had been dis­ap­poin­ted before from my Fusion visit and a couple of other fest­ivals, the Plötz­lich am Meer Fest­ival at the Pol­ish coast kept its prom­ises. A mix of good music

Heineken Cities Of The World: Berlin/Rio Fusion

To cel­eb­rate their newly launched City Edi­tion bottles, #Heineken have brought the Cit­ies of the World cam­paign to life. In a first post, we have already intro­duced the Open Your City app and gave you some advice on how to go hard in Berlin-Wedding, one of our favor­ite Kiezes to discover. But the cam­paign entails more

PROFIT | PROPHET — team titanic exhibition

23.09.2014

I am not a big fan of art weeks and fairs. In gen­eral, I have little love for art. Not because I don’t appre­ci­ate the aes­thetic, but because everything sur­round­ing it is mar­ket and dis­trac­tion. Some­times it’s very hard to find the art between all of the booze-hunting VIPs. When it comes to the exhib­i­tions my friends from

Make Love, Not War: AXE & PEACE ONE DAY Campaign Round-Up

19.09.2014

Remem­ber the incred­ibly well done AXE Peace cam­paign we already repor­ted about a while ago? The time has come to round up its achieve­ments, which are abund­ant. With the Motto “Make Love, Not War”, which was prom­in­ently painted at the notori­ous street art corner of Fal­ck­en­stein­straße, the cam­paign was also phys­ic­ally brought to life in Berlin.

Table Dance & Champagne Bottles: #THETICKET with Kindness & Blood Orange

18.09.2014

Have you ever been to a con­cert in a table dance club? There’s a first time for everything, I guess. In a spec­tac­u­lar “This is so Ber­lin” man­ner, Con­verse have out­done them­selves on grandeur. Schöne­bergs local exquis­ite play­house “Golden Dolls” got ready for Ber­lins best dressed fash­ion and music kids. Impa­tiently, all were wait­ing for the mil­lion dol­lar
