After 300 demonstrators gathered at Eastside Gallery earlier today to disturb the demolition of parts of the longest remaining stretch of the Berlin Wall, the building contractor and police decided to delay further construction. One piece of wall was removed, protestors are afraid that demolition will be continued later today or at night.
Peres Projects is pleased to present Gay Town, a solo project with James Franco. Gay Town explores a variety of themes that are central to Franco’s artistic practice, mainly issues related to adolescence, public and private persona, stereotypes and other societal concerns such as society’s preoccupation with celebrity. Franco created most of the works for
I always perceived the stretch of land between Ostbahnhof and Warschauer Straße always as a no-man's-land. The part that is located south of the S-Bahn tracks – mostly because the East Side Gallery is more a tourist spot than a place of daily life – is as alien to me as as the northern part, that is dominated by warehouses, hardware and central markets. If it wasn't for Berghain I might have never noticed the strange isolation of this small inner-city island that was built at the historical site of the former Wriezener Bahnhof and its tracks. Always wondering what might be stored in there, it takes a couple of minutes to pass these depots of innumerable miles of shelving. I still remember this late summer weekend in 2010 quite well, when we left the club at dawn, climbed up to the roof of one of the warehouses and sat there to enjoy the first warm shafts of sunlight. We stayed for quite some time and were not bothered by anyone, let alone the owners or the police, simply because there wasn't a soul in sight.

In case you've missed it: Yesterday's dense fog didn't leave any doubts that autumn has finally arrived. Upon coming home to Kreuzberg I was amazed about the city being densely covered with thick mist – enjoy for yourself how beautiful and eery the Oberbaumbrücke sat enthroned over the Spree yesterday.
Berlin in the wee hours is divine. Experiencing this serenity when the city wakes up can be the best chill-out effect after dancing the night away. Recently, I took a walk home along Karl-Marx-Allee, in my eyes Berlin’s most impressive and most scenic grand boulevard. After the end of WW2, the majority of Berlin was in ruins.
I wouldn’t exactly say that the RAW Tempel Location makes a good place for a BBQ, but it’s not too far off from grime-y places like Görlitzer Park either so we might just as well get the grill fired up. In any case, you may or may not remember that that’s where our Headquarters for FindingBerlin-Tours are,
The Modersohnbrücke in Friedrichshain is famous for it’s one of a kind sundown viewing location. It’s the cheapest overview of the city including a wonderful lightning situation, so if you’ve ever wondered where to take your next date to, this is the right spot (although you probably won’t be alone. Modersohnbrücke usually is crowded, and you do
A couple of weeks ago Martin invited us on one of his new tours. On his beautiful bikes (whenever we get the chance, we leave our own bikes at home and borrow one of his’ — they’re just too precious), Martin guided us through Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain on his newly added “Street Art Tour”. Truth be told:
I can’t believe I’ve never been to a Karaoke Night at Monster Ronson’s before. Located on Warschauer Str, this queer joint has all you need for a wasted (and possibly embarrassing) night out: cozy comfy booths, an adventurous program, various activities and a lot of party. To celebrate the birthday of one of our best friends we decided to
Every year a cool person (definitely someone with 3000+ friends on facebook) goes into an unknown, shitty joint with a sparse interior design, blank walls and some vintage furniture and makes it the place to be. For the next couple of months, everyone and their mother charge into the place, overcrowd it, hype it on their blogs
