    While no professional relationship is easy, rosy or all good ( and why should they) the artist-gallerist relationship can be particularly strained. Mostly because the contracts are written on dollar bills with champagne ink and it is very hard to decipher who is the boss, who owes who and how much exactly. A 50-50% of...

    Recently I have been cheating on Bpigs with a Späti. My new workplace from Monday til Friday, from 10am til the boss wakes up and takes over the shop. Why go out for a döner when I have a steak at home, you might ask. Well, it turned out to be perfectly possible to have both, which is starting to show on the...

    Nicholas Byrne, Anthea Hamilton, Jack McConville, Rallou Panagiotou, Despina Stokou @remap4 I used to think of openings like birthday parties. You prepare something special and your friends, their friends and their friends friends come to celebrate you and your accomplishments and share alcohol, which should ideally...

Rocker to rocker, raver to raver, hipster to Peres Projects, _____ (continue the sequence).   THURSDAY 21.11 Berlin under 30 @...

    Last Friday, I was at the Pop-Up Gallery in Schöneberg - the week's theme was "American artists" and my roommate was showing some of the photographs she had been working on for the past few months. I wanted to support my friends - and I heard there was going to be all-you-can-drink prosecco for five...

    Last week Berlin had a hot&cold thing going on. Besides the standard combo (hot people + cold drinks),  it went a bit crazy with fireballs in the freezing Berlin night and snowmen in the melting African sun.    THURSDAY 07.11 Jutta Koether @ Praxes First and foremost, last Thursday’s...

    I’ve been thinking a lot about Van Gogh recently. This might be because I recently watched the episode of Scandal where the team is mailed a disembodied ear. It also could have to do with the beautiful white van in my neighborhood lined with Van Gogh-esque sunflower curtains. I call it “Van Go”. It...

    A brief overview of all things we did not miss last week while dodging the flying eggs (somebody could've warned us that that's what kids do here on Halloween) and collecting worried looks aimed at our slightly innapropriate costumes. WEDNESDAY 30.10 Max Frisinger – Red Sea @ OZEAN As I walked up to...

    For the most of us Berlin Art Week may be an euphoric art experience somewhere back in September. Yes, we all went to the ABC art fair to catch up with the galleries’ freshest, attended openings – the more the merrier – and got silly drunk at Augustraße street festival. Pivotal figures in...
