    This week should feel like heaven for the art lovers, and not only for the tourists not used to Berlin's dynamic. Luckily, most of us are free of work on Thursday, so we can relax and celebrate Biennale, Tempelhof, sunny weather, our editor's birthday, Kimye wedding, and whatever else there is to happily down...

    All hail to the wonders of technology! You will hardly ever hear that from me, but I do admit if something leaves me thinking: why did nobody come up with this before? How did we manage to live without this for so long? Let me introduce you to one of such seemingly simple inventions that make life as smooth as David...

    Berlin's regular partygoers probably know Markus Manowski as Daze Maxim, the Berlin-based musician, producer, and performer in the field of electronic music.

    The huge Gallery Weekend fuss is (finally) over; some are already nostalgic, others relieved. It still does not mean that all of the galleries in Berlin took a break. On the contrary: there are still places to go, things to see, people to meet! THURSDAY 08.05 19.00 Anonymous Drawings Project WHY: The project...

I figured it would...

    Gallery Weekend just turned ten! I won't hide the excitement and enormous expectations I had at the yesterday's press converence and the gallery tour. The organisation (this year with Maike Cruse in charge) made it more fancy and intimate, inviting relevant press to Pauly Saal. No lunchboxes, no firecrackers;...
