    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. But worry not; our slightly starved pre-holiday list is going to grow stronger again in 2015, and until then, enjoy the cold nights at hot parties, and...

    Last week art intertwined with fashion and made the city twice as vibrant and nice. Going to openings is almost as going to fashion events anyway, so we skipped all the trendy fuss and went to see what is on in some of our favorite art spaces in Berlin. No disappointment, pluses were everywhere.

      We do not need to remind you that this week is all about fashion, darling! But the schedule is dense and impossible to coordinate with the less fabulous daily life, so we are bringing you a narrowed choice based mostly on the criteria: 1.fun and 2.free. Naturally, we had our third eye open for spotting the...

    Daniel Schwartz - "Juxtapose" A pretty much homogenous week of openings is ahead of us, but we shook it a bit with a controversial documentary and yet another weird menu based performance. Carnival of Cultures left us partly deaf, therefore no sound related tips from us this week. Enjoy the silence. ...
