    It is that time of the year: snow is on the ground, a biting dryness is in the air, and transmediale 2014 is on the brink of opening. This year, the festival centers around the idea of residual afterglow - "The [digital] revolution is over. Welcome to the afterglow," artistic director Kristoffer Gansing...

    Another week, another festival! These days we truly feel privileged to live in Berlin. Transmediale is just about to begin and join forces with the ongoing CTM, which gives you plenty of reasons to leave the house and start camping in the festival sites. Besides the festival madness, pay attention to some great...

    Winter took its toll last week and locked many of us in several layers of blankets and various forms of pajamas. What we simply could not miss was the opening of the CTM Festival, for we felt adventurous and adventures in music and art were promised to be seen and heard. Other than that, we casually dropped by (not...

    LoBe is a contemporary art residency that provides artists with an opportunity to develop their practice within a environment that promotes dialogue, collaboration, exhibition making, and interdisciplinary practice.

    Of the latest trends in op/ed journalism today, the list is topped by anxiety culture, the Generation Y/Millenials, and the morality of using unpaid interns (Hi! That's me!). KLEMM'S latest exhibition - which opened last Friday - seemed to toy with similar ideas of self-importance, self-awareness, and...

    Last week art intertwined with fashion and made the city twice as vibrant and nice. Going to openings is almost as going to fashion events anyway, so we skipped all the trendy fuss and went to see what is on in some of our favorite art spaces in Berlin. No disappointment, pluses were everywhere.

    Athi-Patra Ruga (18.01 @ SAVVY Contemporary) This week Berlin is all about fashion, but the opening calender indicates that the force is almost as strong with art. Good luck to everyone who will try to coexist both in the art and the fashion world these days - we dedicate our weekly tips to You (see the Fashion Week...

      We do not need to remind you that this week is all about fashion, darling! But the schedule is dense and impossible to coordinate with the less fabulous daily life, so we are bringing you a narrowed choice based mostly on the criteria: 1.fun and 2.free. Naturally, we had our third eye open for spotting the...

    From France to Luxembourg, and Australia to Austria, the four co-curators of insitu are the perfect example of Berlin's collaborative/creative museum and gallery culture. Coming from a variety of commercial galleries, the team of Nora Mayr, Lauren Reid, Gilles Neiens, and Marie Graftieaux (pictured above from left...

    Artwise and socially, last week did not disappoint. Encouraged by post-holiday boredom, new years resolutions, lack of money and/or friendly outdoor temperatures, a lot of people used the benefits of the sudden boom of art events. Let us hope that this common January spark of energy and will lives throughout the whole...
