  • Pierre-Etienne Morelle and Hester Oerlemans - Ozean
    by Lisa Kosak, 28 Nov 2014
    Due to fundamentally different ideas about engagement in contemporary art, Hester Oerlemans decided that it was time to move on with OZEAN and host the last performance in that space. Back in 2010, Hester Oerlemans created her project space by closing the front of an open garage with a wooden wall. After four years...

    Have no regrets if you had chosen Berlin over seaside beaches; you just did the right thing! This fun loving city is all about celebration this week: whether you are an art or party enthusiast (or most likely, both), you will have plenty of excuses to take some days off, only to be able to "keep on dancing...

    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...

    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...

    As usual, we highlight a balanced mix of different events and places, from the relatively familiar to completely new, including a contemporary music performance in a planetarium. Bonus tip: give some extra attention to your appearance and styling, because you just might encounter Berlin's most dreaded fashion...

    Within two days of arriving in Berlin, I had my first assignment: cover the opening of WONDERHUT at OZEAN. I didn't realize Germans liked caps locks so much, I thought to myself as I biked down to Kreuzberg and into a small courtyard hidden off of a sidestreet, swirling in circles as I tried to figure out if...
