    Unlike "director’s cut", this new series, which might or might not become a thing in Bpigs, will try to present readers with a shortened version of events: a dense mix of popular oppinion, marked usually with “I heard” and personal ones marked, logically, with “I think”. There...

    What a week! The massive Gallery Week roster ensured that there was plenty of good, definitely some bad, and always some ugly. Hopefully our survival guide and sneak peak helped you make some well-informed decisions about how to divide your time, but now it’s time to reflect on everything we saw and did. This...

    What a weird, beautiful, overwhelming day. Attending the Gallery Weekend preview for the press definitely gave me some material to discuss and/or brag about. Since I wasn't familiar with this kind of event (fresh Berlin transplant!), they already got me at coffee & croissants and cute lunch bags, and it was...

Amongst the glamour, the VIPS, Eva&Adele, and the Press, there is a little army of Nobodies circling the booths like moths the light...Artists Anonymous. ...

    This was a great week in Berlin, and I don’t think any explanation of why is necessary. While en route to EIGEN + ART on Thursday, I noticed that there were a lot of attractive people around, and I wondered where they all came from. I realized then that they had been here all along, but a smile on the face (in...

    In the ongoing "How Did I do It" Series we will get artists to talk about their experiences while pursuing "the dream" of an artistic career. Canadian Cyrus Smith talks about the waiting in line outside the Kunsthalle project last week.  What would you do for a 2meter square spot on the wall...

    It would be nice if there was, at least, a degree of geographical congruity within the discordant Berlin art scene. Alas, the sprawl is seemingly inebriated. On the up side, even if no one wants to hear about your increased knowledge of the city's gallery-cooridnates, newfound bus-route savvy is sure to win some...
