    There are a few things you get used to while being an intern… -Working for free... Because who has money? (Not interns…) -Minimal direction... I was trained by Adela on a need-to-know basis, which I thought was a pretty effective strategy. Old interns train baby interns! Learn from...

    Last week we said goodbye to our lovely intern Eva who is heading back to Prague. Conveniently, the week turned out to be more eventful than ever; the parties lasted longer than usual and there were more openings than we could possibly attend. Here is what the Bpigs team managed not to miss.   WEDNESDAY 23.10...

    Coming out of ABC Berlin, and headed to FIAC Paris, we stop in London for one of the iconic art fairs that is part of the Frieze Foundation projects, Frieze Art Fair London. The Frieze fair, celebrating its 10th anniversary, while still semi-resembling a fashion show (perhaps Chanel's art inspired S/S 2014...

    If you have been checking your calendar regularly, then you know Halloween is coming up next weekend. If you are avoiding facing the fact that summer is over, just revel in the photograph above of me at a Halloween party my friends and I threw when we were 11 years old. I think this was before Spin-the-Bottle....

      Full moon inspired many of us to do weird things this weekend. See what you've missed while we're assembling a moon related music playlist to recreate the Lynchian atmosphere that creeped upon us...   FRIDAY 18.10 “OH HIMMEL, STRAHLENDER AZUR…” @ Pavillon am Milchhof...

    Do you see that bright red light? When a computer dies, its screen often defaults to a cerulean blue screen affectionately called “the blue screen of death”. Likewise, when the WLAN in my flat fails, our router displays what I like to call “the red light of someone's-going-to-die-soon-if-o2-doesn...

    While being out of the city we might or might not have missed a lot, but we are happy to be back for a fun arty weekend. Halloween in Berlin already begins in a few days (or does it ever stop?), and if the suit makes a man, then this week you can even become art per se. FRIDAY 18.10 19.00 Some Ghost Notes @ Scotty...

    Rain, rain, go away, come again never. Ever. But bring the rest of the Bpigs team back! As half of the Bpigs staff was out of the country this week, Eva and Nathan took to the town to bring you the best (and worst) of last week. FRIDAY 11.10.13 Nachtleben Berlin - 1974 Bis Huete @ HAU2 Nachtleben Berlin –...

     While I was debating whether or not to review Starbucks as an artistic institution, Despina suggested it might be more fruitful to check out Döner shops instead—it would be much more Berlin! Up for the challenge, I eagerly biked to Kreuzberg to do some fieldwork. That was probably my first mistake....

    We thought you might need a break from the reality in which Putin is nominated for Nobel Peace Prize and Madonna is turning to curating art on Twitter, so we brought you a list of events that guarantees an escape into the realms of underground, experimental and surreal, and of course some good old simple fun....

    Yay for the national holiday! It gave us an illusion of a weekend that lasts forever, although it was only one day off (two for the luckier ones). Some of us used the extra time to get even busier and some decided to lose and let loose. However, the events that we visited fortunately satisfied both ends - see for...

    I grew up on a 30 square-kilometer island. There were between seven and nine Starbucks on our island, depending on whom you asked. As both the cool place to hang out (when you were 12 years old) and a part of your daily routine (when you were 40 and too boring for an independent coffee shop), Starbucks was an integral...
