Living Room

I dropped by Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW) last week to check on Internet access for an event this Friday and ran into a small exhibiton – sort of by accident. The exhibition is called “Living Room” and features works about space and shadow primarily from Indonesia (or South-East Asia, as they put it).

DSC04516 They created a room for this exhibition in the entrance hall of HWK. The space is surounded by a pretty cool set of drawings/illustrations, about which I could not find out anything, or much – other than that I like them. ;-) If you want to see some impressions, make sure you check out my Flickr.

Most of the works inside (the room) are visuals (video), and since you won’t run into contemporay art from Asia every day, I’d say you give it a try. Admission costs 3 EUR (reduced: 2 EUR).

Voll das Leben

In Berlin ist halt immer was los. Und als qualitativ hochwertigstes Blatt am Block zeigt uns der Berliner Kurier am besten wie (einem) das Leben (mit)spielt. :-) Eben jenes Bild stammt aus dem wohlsituiertesten dollsten Stadtteil Berlins, dem guten Wedding. T

Meeting Camilla

I arrived back home. The fridge was empty, thank you flatmate. good girl cleaned out everything before she left. Went over to my neighbours place and asked how things are, Michael grinned at me, he normally doesn’t. “Welcome, it has been a long time, come in!” This was different, he is the typical Berliner who mumbles something that decrypts as “Come in and shut up”. I knew that there was something special to happen if this guy is so full of “positive energy”.
He led me to the living room and there it was, a terrarium and on a little perch Camilla was sitting and hanging, lounging, it denelitely looked very relaxed. Camilla, also called Wuschel is a Jemen Chameleon. She is green, like the green copper turns to when oxidating too long. She has some grey stripes along her body. Her Feet are just like gaspipe pliers, she is balancing herself out all the time, favourite tool is obviously her tail that is longer the the rest of her body and is reeled in when not needed. Michael explains: “Camilla sits in her glashouse for hours always trying to heat up as chameleons are hematocryal, when she is not warm enough she doesn’t even eat, she just can’t move.” Note: If you run into trouble with hematocryals, cool ’em down.
Camilla can look at you with her one eye, while she looks at something else with the other, you move on just one side, only the eye that scans this side of Camilla will show a reaction. Chameleons have a field of vision of 342

Let the sunshine in

It’s really amazing: One week after some serious onset of winter, we are once again close to 20 degrees air temp. And the effect? I have to put my just bought winter jacket back into my wardrobe and pull out my bermudas. Cool! er… hot ;)

German Reunification Day

When we were walking around in Mitte earlier today, watching all the people, the fair madness and easyness of life, it got me thinking about what I did in 1989. To be honest, I don’t know much about my entire childhood anymore. Then trying to remember dates is even harder. After all I was just a little more than seven years old in ’89, and all this alcohol and drugs in the meantime are not too supportive either.

1989, or maybe late 1989 are easy though! For example, I remember that I was sitting in the kitchen with my mom and dad eating dinner when they reported on the radio that the wall had been opened and that people were crossing from East into West Berlin.
