10 Things To Do When Your Parents Visit You In Berlin

28.05.2014 · 4 comments

I’ve been liv­ing in Ber­lin for almost 7 years now and my par­ents have not once decided to visit me (they have actu­ally phys­ic­ally been to Ber­lin, but never for the sole pur­pose of spend­ing a hol­i­day with me). They seem to like the com­fort of their home too much to come around and spend a couple of

Volksentscheid Tempelhofer Feld und die Zukunft

19.05.2014

The 25th of May is the day were Ber­liners will be able to vote for or against build­ing on the Tem­pel­hofer Feld (along with the EU par­lia­ment, but that’s for another niche blog to cover). As you may know, we think this is a very rare chance of being part of Ber­lins future. Since most people who

Favorite Eateries in Kreuzberg & Neukölln 2014

06.05.2014 · 3 comments

Ber­lins rise in pop­ular­ity and the steady growth of an inter­na­tional and very well fed com­munity has nur­tured a new culin­ary cul­ture in the city. New res­taur­ants, bars and concept eat­er­ies have been pop­ping up all over the place and they’re not exclus­ively döner or bur­ger joints for the budget food­ies any­more. Nowhere as much as

1st of May 2014

05.05.2014

May­day may­hem: every year, the first of May is the ded­ic­ated kick-off of the legendary Ber­lin sum­mer sea­son. And what a kick-off it was: per­son­ally, I spent most of my time in a deli­ri­ous state at the annual Luzia rave. But, lucky for me (and my party­ing), Mar­tin roamed the streets and took plenty of beau­ti­ful pic­tures in

Leipzig: On An Entirely Different Scale

There is a proven cycle of city-hype and the for­mula goes some­thing like this: The mar­gin­al­ized, the poor & cool artists take over a shitty and eco­nom­ic­ally flawed neigh­bor­hood, trans­form it into a “cre­at­ive hub”, estab­lish bars, cafés, gal­ler­ies and bring all their ter­ri­fy­ingly cool look­ing friends to the party.

A MILLION AT LUZIA

The Luzia bar on Orani­en­straße has always been a wet and wild place for parties, so without hes­it­a­tion, we jumped on the chance to actu­ally host our own night. Back in 2012 we star­ted our A MILLION series with a tight crew and the inten­tions to get fucked up with our friends. No man­ners, no reg­u­lar­it­ies, really bad

When I stepped out of my door last even­ing, a fly­ing rock missed my face only by inches. I looked around the corner to see hooded Antifa riot­ing on Reichen­ber­ger Straße. At first I thought I had missed the 1st of May. I finally summed up the moxy to go and see what was hap­pen­ing and asked a passerby. “The Antifa is

Springtime Blues II

07.04.2014 · One comment

I’d men­tioned before how weird it is to feel spring creep­ing up. Nev­er­the­less, it’s more fun than ever to snap­shot the shit out of the city. The past month was very effect­ive in terms of “dusty light” and cherry blos­soms. So without fur­ther ado, here’s a per­spect­ive on our col­lect­ive spring­time blues that isn’t so blue-ish

“PROJEKT U-BAHNTÜREN”

The east­ern seg­ment of Ber­lins U1 around the sta­tion “Schles­isches Tor” (built in 1901) is the old­est part of Ber­lins metro sys­tem and prob­ably one of the most vivid ones as well.

I cooked up a the­ory. It’s about a gen­eral fatigue in my circle of friends. Every­body feels bummed out this spring­time, and I won­der why that is. We’ve got break-ups, new jobs and pro­jects, def­in­itely nice weather. Change is hap­pen­ing! That’s mostly good, isn’t it? We’re either get­ting older or the frowns are jus­ti­fied.

Schillerkisses

The Schillerkiez is all about the left-wing(ed) top­ics and gentri­fic­a­tion issues. We had a couple of mem­or­able kisses back in our Schillerkiez post (I don’t think any of them are left though), but these pic­tures were taken very recently in the hood. I’ll take the “Anti­fart” tag with a grain of salt; I kinda hope someone bought their

The Schillerkiez is in con­stant trans­form­a­tion. Ever since the former air­port Tem­pel­hof was opened to the pub­lic, the adja­cent quarter on the Neuk­ölln side has been sub­ject to change. New cafés and res­taur­ants are test­ing those new grounds con­tinu­ously while long-term res­id­ents are shaken up. Until only a while ago, this was their ter­rit­ory;

I Really Need To …

My new favor­ite piece on Her­mannstraße is also argu­ably the most ran­dom phrase any­one could think of. I like how the artist appar­ently fucked up the “S” and needed to cla­rify that “this is sup­posed to be an S” next to the piece. I’m a big fan of these little “Ber­lin kisses”. For a while now, we’ve only
