SPEISENKINO: WATCH AND EAT THEMROC AT THE ZKU

SPEISENKINO: WATCH AND EAT THEMROC AT THE ZKU

My plan for tomorrow evening? Yummy cinema. The Center for Art and Urban Studies is calling all foodies and cinephiles to join “Speisenkino”. Every Friday until mid September, ZKU will be hosting a culinary open air film event. Tomorrow’s screening is the seventies classic “Themroc”, and chefs from the Mitte-based restaurant named after the film have created the menu for the night. Music will be served too, by the Berlin Improvisers Orchestra. (Text: Nina Trippel)

JEWELRY SHOW: THE POP-UP STORE FROM INA BEISSNER

JEWELRY SHOW: THE POP-UP STORE FROM INA BEISSNER

On my next week’s to-do list: visit Volume. Currently a pop-up shop by a Berlin-based jewelry designer Ina Beissner is stationed there. Her spring/summer 2014 collection is being displayed on furniture pieces by product designer duo Nino & Svenja. The Peruvian born designer who received a degree in fashion from Esmod school before graduating from a Milan Jewelry School, has started her eponymous brand in 2010. I admire every aspect of her design, from jewelry pieces to her lookbooks; and her ability to transform her themes into an array of different styles. I absolutely adore the small bracelets called “Polly” and “Nadia”. This season they come in geometric styles and remind me of Art Déco designs. So don’t miss your chance: the store is there until early August. (Text: Nina Trippel)

ELISABETH SCHOTTE RECOMMENDS: CAFÉ ZUM LÖWEN

ELISABETH SCHOTTE RECOMMENDS: CAFÉ ZUM LÖWEN

Berliners like to spend their weekends at their weekend country houses. Some brave ones choose the permanent country life and build their own world that sometimes successfully mixes with the local color. This applies to Café “Zum Löwen”. An old guesthouse in the middle of the village, opposite the stone church, is where the ex-Berliners Lola Randl and Philipp Pfeiffer run their café. Here’s where an interesting mix of excursionists, the Uckermark locals and Berlin exiles meet. They also meet at the beautiful nearby Sabinensee lake. It’s a bit more quiet at Stiernsee, which can be reached within 20 minutes by bike. All work in Löwen-Café is done by Lola, Philipp and their friends: Ina serves espresso and cappuccino in a style that is still hard to find in the Uckermark region. Colin Reynolds, who is usually traveling to different markets with his mobile bakeshop “The Wanderer”, provides the cakes. Randl is also a filmmaker. At the moment she is shooting the documentary series “Landschwärmer“; a public press screening of the first season will take place in the old railway station of Wilmersdorf on August 2, 2014.

Elisabeth Schotte is one half of Süper Store. She lives in Berlin-Kreuzberg since 18 and deals with nature just like Woody Allen does: “I love nature, I just don’t want to get any of it on me.”

ARCHITECTURE WORKS & SUMMER PARTY AT THE TECHNINAL UNI

ARCHITECTURE WORKS & SUMMER PARTY AT THE TECHNINAL UNI

Being a former student of the Institute of Architecture of theTechnical University of Berlin myself, I know how busy the end of each semester can be. But also how proud one feels, when showing your work to friends and family. This Friday sees another final exhibition there. Visitors are welcome to view works done by the students of architecture and landscape architecture, and peep into their studios. The trip to TU is worth your while just to see its beautiful study halls by Bernhard Hermkes and Hans Scharoun alone. The exhibition will end with a speech by FAZ editor Niklas Maak along with chilled drinks; and of course, the legendary summer party. If you still have the energy, visit the UDK Rundgang to see and listen to works in the field of fashion, art and music. (Text: Milena Kalojanov)

MORE SKY – TWO EXHIBITIONS BY OTTO PIENE

MORE SKY – TWO EXHIBITIONS BY OTTO PIENE

Yesterday night was the opening of two solo exhibitions by Otto Piene, one of the forerunners of light art installations in the early 60s. First opening was at the Deutsche Bank Kunsthalle and later at the Neue Nationalgalerie. You could feel the inner happiness of the 86 year old artist when he gave a very calm speech last night, saying how happy he was to see people at his exhibition, something he could only dream of as a young man. Not to be missed is the Light Art Event this Saturday from 15:00-03:00 on the rooftop of the Neue Nationalgalerie. For the thirsty visitors: the Pauly Saal Bar will open a pop up bar inside the Neue Nationalgalerie. (Text: Sven Hausherr)
