Neue QM

just to remind all the card carrying intelligentsia out there – prize winning bookstore PRO QM is moving to new digs around the corner from their familiar shop at Alte Schönhauser Straße 48. The new address is Almstadtstraße 48-50 and opening celebrations will take place this sunday the fourth of february beginning at 18:00. Party with the smart set as you swap witty banter regarding “Stadt, Politik, Pop, Ökonomiekritik, Architektur, Design, Kunst & Theorie”. Before the end of the evening you’ll most certainly be feeling uninformed and hopelessly out of the intellectual loop – so the next morning make sure to head down to their big sale in the old shop. See you there eggheads!

Oxymoron Of The Day

B.Z.-Kulturpreis – selten so gelacht. Da verbinden sich zwei der überhaupt größten Gegensätze (wo gibt): die B.Z. (absolute Qualitätsjournalie) und Kultur.

art and snow

I went to the opening of the Folkert DE JONG show at Peres Projects on Saturday night. I really liked the show, the sculptures are incredible!
In my opinion Peres Projects (located in L.A. as well as in Berlin) is one of the best galleries in Berlin at the moment: good, daring shows, fun openings, it brings a breath of fresh air in the sometimes rather boring and often very rigid Berlin art scene.
Go and see the show!

Something else entirely: yes, it did snow in Berlin, nothing of the white beauty is left right now, except some disgusting muddy slush. A picture to prove it really did snow!

2raumwohnung in concert for free

Due to the release of their new album “36grad”, 2raumwohnung are going to give a free concert (brought to us by O², yay) on February 2nd at 8 pm at Spindler&Klatt.

As it is free, as in “free”, I urge you to come real early (or send your boy/girlfriend in advance) and wait in the cold with probably hundreds of others, as (of course) only a limited number of people gets in. ;)

Address: Köpenickerstraße 16-17, 10997 Berlin

I know, I know what you are thinking, “so what the fuck?”. I know, but ain’t the little motherf*cker cute as hell? The paper said that this is the first icebear to be born in Berlin’s zoo in 33 years. Big up and congrats to them.

Fotoshop

Last tuesday was one of the last openings at Fotoshop at their tiny location in the Invalidenstrasse 1. Apparently they found a new location to go on with their exhibitions/events, but it will never be the same again …

The pictures are from different openings last year.

Wind chill

fucking.cold.jpg

This is to everyone raving about the winter and coldness, or the lack of – this is what we get. I left the city for five days – this morning I had snow, literally chaos on the roads – and now I am sitting at home, shifted the heating in extra turbo gear, but after four hours it’s still so fucking cold I can not stand it. Even though there’s no snow (surprise, surprise!), the cold came back for sure.
