    This year the 1st of May is more than just an excuse to get wasted in public at midday; it is also the Berlin art scene's favorite holiday – the Gallery Weekend – and the first day of the last Month of Performance Art. Try to stay moderate and survive through the afternoon events and openings all the...

    Once again The Oscars shed light on how glamourous appearance works with ridiculous behaviour for the best comical effect. Maybe we should all learn a lesson or two from the greatest and inject a new dose of fun in our social lives that revolve around openings. What better place for looking great and acting funny (or...

    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...

    "Fitter, happier, more productive"...  Thom Yorke of The Radiohead got the January spirit right. As soon as the holiday leftovers and hangovers are gone, the all-too-familiar new year's resolutions begin. Be one step ahead of your own disappointment and skip the aggressive regimes. How about...

    Dear Santa, socks are cool, but if we could choose one thing we want to see under the Christmas tree, it would be an unaffordable piece of art, of course. This year we saw way more of those than we could even remember, but some are still haunting us in our sweetest daydreams. So here you go. From the top of our...

    Last weekend Halloween reminded us of the power of masks and makeovers. This week we devoted ourselves to the idea of change in different ways, and even decided to give Bpigs a bit of a tweak here and there. From now on our Tips run every second Tuesday, and for the ones in between some exciting new things are in...

    Berlin Art Week is stirring up the spirits once again with six days of events all around the city. Confusion and excitement, the crowds and the queues, free drinks, gossips, wacky outfits and cool shows. Here's what we did not miss so far; Part 1.

    While the other galleries have closed for summer holiday, there remain a few die-hards that have opted to stay open during these beautiful Berlin summer days in order to deliver the goods! Here are a few worth your time. Beat the heat by enjoying cool art. Hortus Semper Virens – Christiane Möbus und Ihre...

    With all the events this week, it seems like none of the galleries want to take a break. It is probably the last round of openings before everyone goes on vacation, so enjoy your favorite places and faces before the summer separates us.

    Rain and endless queues aside, last week will be remembered for widely dispersed exhibitions well worth visiting; from Auguststrasse to Krumme Lanke, or in the walkable distance - from Johann König, Berlin to Schinkel Pavillon.

    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...

    Happy tenth birthday dear Gallery Weekend, and thank you for a great ride! The weekend left us exhausted and hungover, with lots of stories and impressions to share.

    Our tip #1 is to go out immediately, lie on the grass in a comfortable position (we suggest the one in Falk Haberkorn's drawing – see above), and soak up the sunshine until the moon replaces the sun. The next best thing to do is to nurture your mind with art and music, preferably at the places we recommend...

    This week's schedule is particularly busy on Valentine's day even in the anti-conventional world of art. From "One Night Stand" to a three-day (af)fair, there will be plenty of special happenings for every (art) lover's taste. To the more adventurous ones who want to make it really memorable this...

    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...

    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...
