With the rise of the figure of the freelance curator, curating has ventured out of the museum into galleries and beyond—to the extent that those who take themselves to be on the very edge of hip go so far as to claim that they “curate” menus and music playlists. Architecture writer and curator Carson Chan […]

Three to Watch
Three to Watch

The only constant about the artistic landscape in Berlin is that nothing stays the same. Sure, there are common practices in the city: a rich culture of artist-run project spaces, hybrid/mixed-used venues and an unusually high concentration of artists who regularly DJ. However, mostly due to the financial precarity of earning a living here, it’s […]

48 Hours in Berlin It’s 6p.m. on Saturday and my boss, a 50 yr-old Canadian art dealer, has turned on the techno music, filling the gallery with deafening electro-beats. This announces his plan for the evening: it’s his ritual warm-up before heading to Berghain, Berlin’s most hedonistic nightclub. I’ll probably wind up there too, but […]

Wim Wenders
Wim Wenders

On using new technology, the challenges of capturing dance onscreen and the hope for 3D as a tool for future cinematic travel. Among the world’s greatest filmmakers, Wim Wenders has persistently resisted easy categorization. One of the leading representatives of New German Cinema in the 1970s, he also has to his credit a $20 million […]

Berlin Street Food Classics
Berlin Street Food Classics

What the hot dog stand is to New York, the Imbiss is to Berlin. Housed in little huts on the sidewalk, Imbissbuden sell cheap to-go snacks for only a few euros. Since they began, Imbiss have been meeting points for all walks of life: young, old, rich, poor, academics, proletarians, creatives, yuppies and club kids. […]

In a city where the only constant is that everything is constantly changing, you have to respect an establishment that has not only survived 100 years, but remains so busy that reservations are always strongly recommended. Is it the food or the romance of how the bar-turned-restaurant’s history intertwines with the city of Berlin that […]

CHIPPS

It’s 8 p.m. on a Thursday night when my partner and I step into CHIPPS on Jägerstraße. The first thing that catches our eye is the restaurant’s centerpiece: a large open kitchen with an attached salad bar filled with fresh ingredients. We are quickly seated at a wooden table next to one of the panoramic […]

.HBC

There is a certain mayhem to .HBC, the eclectic, multi-story, hybrid art, cinema and dining space located in Berlin’s Alexanderplatz. In keeping with Berlin’s fetish for recycling and the barely-renovated chic of its bars, this former East Berlin Hungarian Cultural Center remains office-esque. Hipsters in high heels cannot click-clack across the old carpet and lino […]

Berlin: Aug 2010
Berlin: Aug 2010

Among the big, famous cities of the Old World, Berlin is one of the few where the gritty meets the grand. Whether we look at the stores or the galleries, this dichotomy creates a wonderful space in which differing styles can be best explored, elaborated and combined. We asked these questions to a few of […]

Three international clubs reinvent the party scene Le Baron de Paris / Tokyo Hidden on a quiet stretch in fashionable Aoyama, Tokyo’s Le Baron de Paris is where the highbrow, design obsessed go for a little late night fun. Outside, a glowing neon pink “B” lets you know you’ve found it. Run by a diverse […]

Berlin
Berlin

Text by Alessandra Mattanza For many, Berlin has become the architectural capital of the world. Since the fall of the Berlin Wall it has been an immense, continual, open construction site, substituting rubble and empty spaces with adventurous, futuristic constructions of glass and steel and other whimsical experiments, with the old historic buildings safely guarded […]
