Concerts, clubs, exhibitions, festivals and sports: Berlin is full of special events. Considering the many cultural aspects we try to share the unique things that happen here on a daily basis and give recommendations on where to go next.
Our expectations about the Cherry Blossom Festival at the Gärten der Welt in Marzahn weren’t particularly high. We were excited to get out of the usual routine for once and escape into a new world. A world in which we would wade in cherry blossoms and soft light, with likeminded fellow romantics and a soft Asian soundtrack in
The interactive Converse #CLASHWALL #BERLIN finally took place last Saturday. On a stunning springtime day, more than 1300 people were witnessing how a fire-break wall on Torstraße was transformed into a collaborative piece of art. For ten days, users had the chance to suggest what they wanted to see on the wall. The talented artists Gogoplata,
Is this a phase or is this forever? Living next to the canal and Görlitzer Park, I’ve been witnessing an influx in runners. In the past years it seems more and more people have become dedicated to the running lifestyle. For whatever reason, it involves neon bright colored sneakers and running gear, but I don’t mind much.
A new piece has been finished up over the weekend above the Magnet club at Oberbaumbrücke. “Make Love, Not War” is the motto by which the artwork is going, nicely demonstrated by an Asian despot and his beloved wife. The location of the painting, right next to the famous Watergate club and clearly visible from
For the Absolut Campaign 2014, Absolut Vodka is presenting its new international project “Next Frame by Absolut”, a collaboration with the acclaimed Brazilian graphic novel artist and author Rafael Grampá. “Next Frame” is an interactive project that invites Absolut Fans to take the opportunity to enter their own ideas for the graphic novel that Grampá is
Much unlike the local Fashion Week, Berlins very own film festival has a great reputation and this years shortlist for the competition is incredibly exciting. Now, almost every movie is worth a watch, but there are some that you should definitely try to get in for. The atmosphere of the whole event is exciting and tense — as if
We did suggest some good partys for Fashion Week. Why not show what it looked like? Kreuzberg club Prince Charles was booked out for the whole week and every party looked different. Tassili decided to check out what the Patrick Mohr afterparty had in store. — His show was provoking, his after party extremely cheerful. Patrick
In my 6th year in Berlin, I still haven’t made it to any of the runway shows (well, I could care less about high fashion to be honest), but I remember some of the best partys (some of them completely hijacked by us punks) taking place during this crazy time of the year. I don’t do this very often,
This summer I was invited to keep records of the Future/Memory exhibition in Dresden Hellerau together with Manuel from Draw a Line.The exhibition brought some of my favorite contemporary artists with a background in street culture, like Horfee, Boogie, Martha Cooper, Cleon Peterson, Stefan Marx, Jay “One” Ramier, Skki and Superblast to Dresden. As all
You won’t need to travel far when you live in Berlin, as the world is usually at your doorstep (probably hungover, trying to get inside your house for a clean bed and a glass of water). Last weekend, the Yeni Raki “Spirit of Istanbul” Night Bazaar at Arena Club proved once again that you can experience first
Although the city was full of Halloween partys last night, this one is surely a speciality: the 21st Halloween Alleycat stays on top of the list of awesome events! The participants were not only dressed to impress, but also ready to run the race. More than 100 riders sped through the cold night on their bikes
There are plenty small galleries around the city, off-spaces with niche-exhibitions or weirdly curated events. But not one of them has gathered such a steady, loyal and crazy cult as the Team Titanic crew did. Located on Flughafenstraße (not a very intuitive place for an offbeat gallery) and with a witty program of contemporary, transdisciplinary,
