What we see, what we do and who we meet: it usually happens right in our neighborhood. These little randoms make up most of our lives here in Berlin. With every little piece of the puzzle we hope to get closer to portraying an authentic picture of the city.

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,
It happened to me when I moved to Berlin six years ago, that I wanted to go to a lake on an extremely hot summer day. So I decided to go for a swim in one of Berlin’s lakes, I did a quick search on google and before you knew it I was on my way to Grunewald lake with another new Berliner. We packed a bag, took some towels, a bikini and our bikes. It was only when we
Whenever visitors ask me about the scenic route the Bus 100 offers, where to hop on, where to hop off, I tell them to forget about their ridiculous plan to see a compressed version of a city that most Berliners don’t care much about, travelling among other tourists out and about for a landmark safari. Instead, they should board
Everybody knows the Berlin Wall and the East Side Gallery, one of the last existing parts of this cruel construction. Since it’s forbidden by the authorities to spray the other site of the wall with legal graffiti it’s quite uninteresting to take a look at the “West Side Gallery”. But since July this place transformed into an
Summer time is flea market time. Specifically, in Kreuzberg and Neukölln, it’s Flowmarkt time. We’ve been fans of those booths and takeaways for quite a time now and it’s safe to say, that not only for us, but for many others the Flowmarkt on Maybachufer has developed to a safe bet for a summer sunday routine. If it’s
As most of you have probably noticed by the nasty smell in the U8: it’s summer. For at least another two days we are spared from thunderstorms and ice blizzards. But since this (and by this I mean GODDAMNIT IT’S SO HOT AND MY T-SHIRT IS SOAKED IN SWEAT) is also a very rare occasion, most of
Our man Jan Herdlicka continues his charming project “Sammelkarten”. I think you know the procedure by now: you can get a package of beautiful handmade mini-prints of Jans photographs. If you are lucky you will even find a “print”-card in your package which will get you an awesome print of his work. All you have to do
There are plenty of moldy ruins in Berlin and you’ve probably seen them all. Spreepark, Eisfabrik, Teufelsberg– if anything, those abandoned places are deeply integrated into the usual tourist excursions through the city . They all look the same after a while. Trash and graffiti, trash and graffiti, trash and graffiti. That said, it’s still a very
Photography usually is used to give an exact image of what you see. With his newest series Jan Herdlicka takes a different approach. The images represent what he calls “the essence of memory”. If you think back to places you have been to, you wont be able to remember every detail. Things change in your mind,
Last month, we were asked by sporting brand Nike to play some music for a football tournament in various places around Berlin. The tournaments were strictly street style and the boys playing were all local Kiez kids defending “their” respective cages. The tournaments were crazy: street tricks, rough battling and lots of sportsmanship were to be
I love my hood for its abundance of delicacies. Whether it’s an exotic Arabic breakfast I’m craving or a Mediterranean gourmet experience for a low-budget, everything is available around Kreuzberg and Neukölln. Feliu, a Catalonian restaurant that has been open for a while now, belongs to the mid-range but affordable type of cozy restaurants with a menu á
