    Hanne Lippard's new installation in the recently reopened exhibition hall of KW Institute for Contemporary Art.

    Looking at the concert list for the next two weeks makes us giggle like little girls. After one more week of CTM events, the month continues festively with great shows day after day.

    Bird song is our favorite tune lately, especially in the afternoon while the sun kisses the cold pavement and makes little squinting eyes shed joyful tears. Soon we will be blasting Vivaldi's "Spring" with all windows wide open, and start complaining about the lack of twee pop in the cold-blooded Berlin...

    Christmas screams in our ears everywhere we go, and everyone seems to be slowing down with happenings while having a kick out of jingle bell jazz at fairs and markets.

    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...
