Kommt nach Potsdam! Denn wir machen meter!

Aus meiner Inbox:


“meter machen”, die Jahresausstellung der Studierenden des Fachbereichs Design der FH Potsdam, findet vom 12. – 15. Oktober 2006 statt. Wir zeigen in Haus 5 auf dem Campus Pappelallee in Potsdam auf drei Stockwerken Arbeiten aus Interface-, Kommunikations- und Produkt-Design.

Am Samstagabend ist große meterfete. Besonders freue ich mich auf die Videoartisten von VISUAL BERLIN. Die VJs arbeiten während der Party interaktiv mit dem Raum und zeigen eine auf die Örtlichkeit zugeschnittene Live-Installation. DJs bestücken die drei Stockwerke mit dufter Musik, tanzen ja bitte.

Dies sowie auch das und den Lageplan findet ihr auf unserer Webseite:

  • Donnerstag 17 Uhr offizielle Eröffnung
  • Freitag 12- 20 Uhr Ausstellung geöffnet

I’m too sexy for my swine

Where, exactly, the german obsession with pigs originates is anyone’s guess. During the two years I have been living in Berlin the unsettlingly frequent images of sexualized swine have not escaped my notice. Currently the Schloss Neuhardenberg is hosting an exhibition of piggy portraits, hoggish household items and swinish social history – perhaps here i can find the answers i so desperately crave!

street fighting man

tiergarten.jpg out of town all last week i soon found myself yearning for the familiar chaos of the Hauptstadt. With luck i found myself in Frankfurt, where the Schirn Kunsthalle is currently hosting an exhibition entitled “The Conquest of the Street” which takes as it subject the urban development of Paris and Berlin through the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries and how it was reflected in the works of the two cities’ painters. While the organizers suggest that the cities’ divergent artistic sensibilities (Parisian Impressionism vs. the Expressionism of Berlin) was evidence of differing reactions to the modern metropolis, their explication in the exhibit is less than convincing. Nevertheless, with over 300 paintings, maps, photographs and posters the show is worth seeing if you have an interest in the cultural history of Berlin (or Paris). Among the Berlin painters the usual suspects are represented (Kirchner, Grosz) as well as some less well known a such as Moriz Melzer and Albert Birkle (whose painting of the Tiergarten S-Bahn Station in 1926 is at left). With the Tokyo-Berlin show at the New National Gallerie, it must be the summer of the city vs. art juxtaposition!

I miss you……(or why I have been missing the World Cup)

To be frank, I am not really into soccer…. It is not that I am one of those who can’t understand why 22 people are running after a small ball and then millions are cheering them up, millions of dollars are getting involved in this “game”, people dedicate their lives as players or fans to it.

Always home…

Wenn man staendig reisen muss, hat man natürlich sehnsucht nach eigenen vier Waende, eigenen Menschen und eigenen Turm !
