Tick, tick, tick!

TICK, TICK, TICK!

Aside from a few bits of sunshine every now and then, the weather in Berlin has been rather grey and cold the last two weeks. Season it with a bit of rain every now and then and you know what we are up to over here.

And this is why I embrace and appreciate color and art of all forms even more right now, then I sometimes do over the rest of the year. And though I cannot complain about the weather this summer in the States, I must admit that art on the street is probably the number one thing I missed (Aside from friends, of course!) when I was away from Berlin.

if you’re the kind that get’s all hot and bothered by phrases like “Free Form Tubular Structures” and “Parametric Pointclouds” then you’ve probably been planning next week’s outfits for months. but if not you still have time to register for UdK’s 3D Modelling Symposium for architects, industrial designers and engineers. just remember – stay away from stripes with checks…

Madelon Vriesendorp @ Aedes Am Pfefferberg

Vriesendorp Stuff
Vriesendorp was one of the founding members of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (together with Rem Koolhaas and Elia and Zoe Zenghelis) and a resident teacher at the AA for over a decade. The World of Madelon Vriesendorp: Paintings/Postcards/Objects/Games is an exhibition that brings together the Dutch artist’s wildly diverse practices from the past thirty-five years, including painting, drawing, collecting, recycling, sculpture and psychological gamedevising as well as the serious business of collecting what Walter Benjamin once called ‘the trash of history’.

Fire!

-Prenzlauer Berg, 30 Nov. 1900
This afternoon firefighters struggled in vain to save the last windmill in Prenzlauer Berg. The owner, local baker Herr Hänsch, watched sadly as his old Adler Mühle, located at Prenzlauer Allee 81, burned to the ground. Though the mill had not been in use since 1982, its loss forms a tragic coda to the story of Berlin’s famous Windmühlenberg.
