    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...

    If you just landed from the moon and missed the whole action, or if you have three more days in Berlin before taking off- THESE are the shows you should go see. No drinks, no pics, no tweets. Just art.    JUSTIN MATHERLY: Community  I cannot believe I missed this at Unlimited this...

    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...

    With the overwhelming events and openings for Gallery Weekend on the horizon, this week’s warm up may not have taken us to a large quantity of places, but we sure got around geographically. From an exclusive tour in Wedding, to openings in Kreuzberg, to a concert in Moabit, to openings in Prenzlauerburg and...

    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...

    This week the Former West conference brought some of our favorite theory all-stars to the Haus that soon became a second home. The unacceptable weather made us more inclined to sitting and listening than moving from gallery to gallery but no regrets! We also managed to make it out to Arts Club Berlin, Kuckei+Kuckei,...

    So March is here, spring is coming, the Berghain queue is already almost as long as it is in summer, but apparently people (ok, us included to an extent…) are still a bit lazy when it comes to going to art events. Speaking of Berghain, there’s a work inspired by the artist, Sarah Schönfeld’s...

    In case you are new here, let us keep you updated on the changes that have been made to our WDIM series. Now instead of only showing you pictures of the Berlin events we visited this last week, we are providing you with commentary too. The commentary is not intended to be a review of the show (since it is likely you...

    What happened this week? Well James Franco graced Berlin with his presence, and we saw quite a bit of work that was “haha” funny...so where does it fall on our Miss/Diss scale?     Monday 04.02   Dream Factory @ Import Projects video screening dealing with the relationship between...

    With transmediale in the mix this week, seeing everything there was to see would be an exhausting and impossible full time job. So everyone missed something, including us; we can just hope that we made the best decisions. We ended up going to a lot of talks this week so there was a lot of sitting and theorizing; next...

    This week it was especially hard to leave home and go see things, but it was usually worth the effort. So if you stayed at home this week, chances were you did miss something, have a look. There were also some impressive winter outfits despite fashion week being over. In case you didn't read last week's post...

    Fall has always been my favourite season with a reason, and this past week has only confirmed that. We had Boros' refurbishing, Johann König's festive secularization of St. Agnes, Preview, plenty of Berlin galleries proudly presenting their new programs... and where all the heads were impatiently turning...
