    Rejoice, freaks & geeks! It's time to look forward to two of the major, avantgarde-flavored festivals in Berlin: the 31-year-old Transmediale and its younger counterpart CTM. Marrying the best of digital art, music, technology & culture, the two aim to deliver a wide array of exciting events in ten days...

    It’s the second week and so it’s time for the second color. As I spent last week in Italy expect to see less Berlin, but more sun! Invisible Border - Mad Architect @Milan Design Week April 29: ORANGE Long-stay prisoncell at prison/TBS facility Overmaze @Milan Design Week Isn’t orange a bit...

    At a time when our lives are constantly subjected to acceleration and to a massive use of technologies the exhibition 100 Years of Now takes the time to put things into perspective and make a diagnosis of our society. We had the opportunity – and great pleasure – to meet Bernd Scherer and Reto Pulfer...

    In the last month, between Christmas, New Years, friends visiting, changing jobs and the chaos of moving I cherished the precious time spent for visiting some of Berlin's galleries, events and exhibitions. Often dragging people to accompany me to the new show opening or an old one closing. With a bargain and a...

    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...

    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,...

    Due to the cold generating colds all across Berlin, coverage of this week’s events mostly involved talks where it was possible to sit down in one place for a while and exert minimal energy. Clearly this epidemic didn’t hit everyone though, judging by that video of the line to get into the C/O party. We...

    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...
