Actions speak louder than words: that’s why watching the mini-documentaries we create about Berlin might bring you closer to the real deal.
What if we were to concentrate on the now, rather than on the past or the future? The presence has become so volatile and hard to grasp, we can hardly follow a train of thought without being distracted, let alone concentrate on the moment when there’s an abundance of screens to look at. Life’s on fast
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
Last summer, a group of cool cats decided — just like that — to break with the Berlin Techno tradition and host a little one-day festival at YAAM! They were probably sick of all those illegal Open Airs with bad sounds and unchill vibes — you know, cops ruining the mood, monotone after-hour minimal music ruining the mood, bad weather ruining the mood,
You might remember our visit to Stockholm last summer. It have been some great days with our very good friends Robert & Thatsanie who live in Stockholm and showed us around the city. Next to the many pictures we took, I made a little film about one day in the city and some locations we’ve been visiting
When we travel, we don’t usually travel big. Instead, we try to focus on what’s “real” about a city, meaning we try to do the things that are of interest to us and want to avoid the conventional tourist traps. Not an easy task, to be honest, especially when you’re not off the beaten track. That’s
Twice a year Berlin falls into a prosecco sipping, highheels rocking trance which some call Fashion Week. The deal is that everybody is just talking about how totally unimportant Berlin is fashionwise but how fresh the parties are. What can we say? We dont really care. Sometimes we love ourselves some superficial spectacle but right now we
You need to know that soccer events are something special for us. Not that we are crazy fans but the last worldcup was something like the foundation of the FindingBerlin crew. During this time I was out in the streets shooting some videos of fans and openair locations in Berlin. Sara saw these videos and posted
Put me on a plane anywhere and I’ll probably tell you how it totally met my expectations. Call it globalisation, or media overload. Blame it on the internet or on movie aesthetics, but when I went to New York — just to drop an example here of what I mean — it felt like I’d been here many times before. In fact,
Normally I don’t take any of the Berlin offers for public transport. I hate spending time waiting for the next train and pay more and more money for that. I rather go directly by bike and breathe the city overground. Last sunday I went to see my friends Touchy Mob gig at Haus am See and due to social
Walking through the streets of Berlin is always an intense experience. If you open your eyes you can read the whole city and see its citizens communicate with each other. You will recognize the hip scenic neighborhoods from the dense of graffiti and streetart and you can dive into an universe of colorfull surprises around
Creative New Media - Meet & Eat is the name of a new networking and socializing event here in Berlin. Maria and Julia of fantastic Artconnect Berlin have decided to bring together all those bloggers in the city to spend an evening together. In the warm atmosphere of the cozy Agora café down in Neukölln we
So, while the youth of the world is protesting the careless waste of our economy and the inhuman dictatorships of their respective countries, it seems as if the kids of London and Berlin have mainly settled on “looting” as a viable form of demonstrating their needs. Well, at least that’s what it looks like if you
Fashion Shows. Boring, mondane, full of pretentious people, blonde chicks in high heels, yawning journalists, and nobody seems to know what all the fuss is about. Good thing is: we’re in Berlin, so this shit does not fly with the locals. We don’t want to detach ourselves from our consumerist needs, so there has to
i love street musicians. and i’m not talking about shitty unpassionated accordion players in the s-bahn. i’m talking about those artists who play the soundtrack of the city. From the saxophone player at warschauer straße to the jazz and blues bands at maybachufer. you make me feel it. this new series is about those street musicians.
