Finding Ibiza


The Balearic island Ibiza has been known to me as former hip­pie enclave that turned into a com­mer­cial­ized and some­what cliché Techno-Mallorca some­time dur­ing the 90ies. Most people will think of wasted tour­ists in over­priced clubs, bump­ing to Skrillex and Avi­cii, while the beaches are too crowded to enjoy. How­ever, in the past couple of

Blub! Abandoned Swimming Pool in Neukölln

After my four month trip to South­east Asia a couple of years ago, I swore to myself that I would never see another water­fall in my life again. Usu­ally, the hik­ing tours there all take you up a hill or a moun­tain, and once you have dragged your sweat­ing ass to the top, a water­fall awaits your view. It’s all nice and

If you are plan­ning to start doing pho­to­graphy there seem to be dozens of tech­nical hurdles and an over­load of people telling you this and that. In this field almost every per­son has a clear opin­ion about the gear you should use or motifs that are worth being cap­tured. If you try do learn pho­to­graphy via magazines

5 Ideas for Escaping Summer 2014

30.07.2014 · 4 comments

Before long, sum­mer in Ber­lins turns into a grey mix of windy tem­per­at­ures between 15 and 21 degrees and per­petual drizzles of rain. Aye, that’s sum­mer! Although we’ve been blessed with some great days and nights, the dreaded slump has turned into real­ity. People are either vaca­tion­ing the whole of Europe or sit­ting inside the magical study

Festival Season with Diesel — Win tickets to Berlin Festival*


Since the com­mon Ber­liner loves to excess­ively party out­side of Ber­lin, fest­ival sea­son is more than just a vague prom­ise of great music and sun­shine: it’s a com­mit­ment to the life­style. There are big fest­ivals, such as the MELT! only an hour away, there are small fest­ivals, such as the Möhre which we’ve told you about, and

“Titel 172 — Prahlerei ist die beste Ausrede auf dem Acker” — exhibition review


What is the defin­i­tion of an artist? Is pro­du­cing art mainly about tal­ent, artistic tech­nique or cre­ativ­ity or isn’t it rather about being able to copy oth­ers ideas without get­ting caught? These and other ques­tions are treated by the group exhib­tion entitled “Titel 172 — Prahlerei ist die beste Aus­rede auf dem Acker” that fea­tures vari­ous

Berlin bleibt unsere Stadt

While the suc­cess of the 100% Tem­pel­hofer Feld ini­ti­at­ive has left a warm glow in people’s hearts, the future devel­op­ment of the city remains a con­cern for many. A couple of weeks ago I atten­ded a rally whose motto “Ber­lin bleibt unsere Stadt” (‘Ber­lin remains our city’) col­lec­ted a broad coali­tion of people and groups con­cerned with

“Hundekopf” or how to explore Berlin with a camera

24.07.2014 · 2 comments

Patrick, of berlin-based pho­to­graphy blog Radi­ant Flux, has thought of a way to explore the city that would both expand his hori­zon and make for inter­est­ing pho­to­graphy. You can see all of his Hun­dekopf pic­tures on his blog. I invited Patrick to tell his approach to the pro­ject here and to share his per­spect­ive on Ber­lin in the future

Every year, we post at least one pic­ture of the Ber­liner Tour d’Eiffel (see here and here and I think there were more but I can’t find them) . Le Fernse­hturm, as it’s called, is still a heartwearm­ing sym­bol of home. Although it has not a power­ful WIFI that con­nects auto­mat­ic­ally, I still con­sider every sum­mer night with a glimpse of it as

Ah, thank the Almighty we’ve had enough prac­tice for years and years of stand­ing of queues. We’ve passed the Berg­hain test a couple of times, which makes us pro’s in the art of jump­ing the line with 20 people without any­body ever noti­cing (let me tell you, it’s a LOT harder to jump the line any­where else

CSD Kreuzberg 2014 Recap


The thing with ana­log pho­to­graphy is that the full rolls some­times live and die in my back­pack without ever being noticed. That’s why it can take a little longer than usual for me to develop them and finally real­ize “oh, so THAT’s what I for­got writ­ing about”. So my cov­er­age of the Kreuzberg CSD might be a little late, but it’s

Mmaah: Korean BBQ in Neukölln

16.07.2014 · 2 comments

Every­body loves Korean food! This is a known fact! And another fact is that I am the per­son that loves it the most, which is why any new Korean joint in town is already a favor­ite of mine. Unfor­tu­nately, Mmaah is a little on the off-side. It’s between Hasen­heide, Columbiabad and Tem­pel­hof, sure, but at the wrong entrance of

We all heard that story before. The nev­erend­ing tale of ber­lins rise to cool. The myth about its unique party cul­ture. Its about the spa­tial free­dom, the anything-goes, the nobody-cares and the do it your­self that was build on these ele­ments. The sweet memory of the time when all the things were actu­ally hap­pen­ing every­body is asso­ci­at­ing
