LIEBESKIND BERLIN x CEE CEE PRESENT THE BERLIN GUIDE

LIEBESKIND BERLIN x CEE CEE PRESENT THE BERLIN GUIDE

You’re invited: next Thursday (23.2.17), Liebeskind Berlin x Cee Cee are hosting a celebration of “The Berlin Guide”: Liebeskind’s compendium of insider tips for enjoying the city 24/7, compiled by Cee Cee. Join us from 19h for an evening packed with the best of a Berlin day. We’ll be kicking things off with Bloody Marys and channelling that canal-side summer feeling with an iced lemongrass tea. Pop by the “Späti Ecke” for popcorn, pick’n’mix or a pavement beer and — if you dare — let @theserottendays tattoo you live. There’ll be hotdogs for sustenance before we hit the dance floor, where Jamiie & Carla du riche will be spinning tracks. Expect a few more surprises yet — all of which should give you a taste of Liebeskind’s new city guide, which you’ll be able to take home with you. And just in case you need another reason to join us — all of this is happening at an exciting new Prenzlauer Berg location, Von Greifswald. RSVP via the Facebook event, round up your friends and get ready to celebrate the best of the city in style. (Text: Anna Dorothea Ker / Photo: Tim Kraehnke)

GEIST IM GLAS: A LATE NIGHT HAUNT COMES BACK TO LIFE

GEIST IM GLAS: A LATE NIGHT HAUNT COMES BACK TO LIFE

Blink and you’ll miss it: tucked away on a subdued Kreuzkölln block, Geist im Glas is easy to stroll right past. But like the Prohibition-era speakeasies this cocktail bar takes after, understated is exactly how owner Aishah Bennett likes it. Don’t be fooled by the relaxed atmosphere — dark, sexy and candlelit — here, cocktails are serious business. The liquor cabinet is stocked with a top notch selection of spirits such as Helsinki Distilling Company gin and Mezcal Atenco. It’s the house infused liquor that you want to go for, though: like whisky with blood orange, jasmine tea and blackberry, best enjoyed in a “Boulevardier”, a jazzy take on the Negroni. Because that’s exactly what Geist im Glas does best: takes the classics, creates them with fine ingredients and finishes them with an unexpectedly delicious twist. What’s more, the bar also offers up the antidote to itself, serving southern US-inspired, hangover-busting brunches on weekends. The former menu mainstays — huevos rancheros and dulce de leche pancakes — are joined by cheddar grits and coconut milk porridge loaded with fruit and nuts. All this paired with a special drinks menu of Mimosas, Bloody Marys and espresso-based cocktails. At Geist im Glas, it’s all too easy for day to slip into night again.

CURATORS INSIDE: TALKING ART FROM THE INSIDE OUT

CURATORS INSIDE: TALKING ART FROM THE INSIDE OUT

Good curation is an art form in and of itself. But how does the profession actually work? A new series of talks, “Curators Inside”, founded by art historian Julia Rosenbaum and curator and critic Christine Nippe, shines the spotlight behind the scenes, inviting curators to share their approaches. Tomorrow night at the former Kindl brewery, the initiative’s fourth iteration invites Andreas Fiedler, Swiss art critic and artistic director of the Kindl — Centre for Contemporary Art, to provide an insight into his projects and his artistic process, including the current work on show in the old boiler room, David Claerbout’s “Olympia“. Admission is €10 and the talk is in German. Even if you can’t make it tomorrow, mark your calendars for the next round in March: a talk with Alya Sebti at Ifa-Galerie Berlin.

JASMIN TOMSCHI RECOMMENDS: BEETS & ROOTS

JASMIN TOMSCHI RECOMMENDS: BEETS & ROOTS

Granted, I haven’t worked in Mitte for a while, at least not on a regular basis. But I distinctly remember the endless search for a healthy lunch spot. If you’re looking for something quick and fresh, Beets & Roots could be your new go-to. Opened in November 2016 by young gastronome Maximilian Kochen and Andreas Tuffentsammer, the youngest German chef to receive a Michelin star in 2011, the fast-casual restaurant centres their menu around bowls in a variety of enticing flavors, ranging from Italian to Japanese. The latter include sesame noodles, edamame, miso eggplant and toppings of your choice. Fitted out with sleek cement walls, black-and-pink tiles and neon installations, with nineties hits playing on loop, lunch at Beets & Roots will taste just as good as the next time you take it to go. Oh, and by the way: a pre-order app is in the works. (Text: Jasmin Tomschi)

ARTISTS TAKE ON BIG BROTHER: SURVEILLANCE PHOTOGRAPHY

ARTISTS TAKE ON BIG BROTHER: SURVEILLANCE PHOTOGRAPHY

From CCTV and Google Maps to facial recognition on Facebook, contemporary society seems to take permanent observation as a given. But exactly who’s looking – and what are they looking for? A trio of exhibitions opening this Thursday and Friday at Museum für Fotografie and C/O Berlin explore the issues surrounding surveillance, offering us a rare chance to watch the watchers. Including the works of international artists such as Ai Wei Wei, Trevor Paglen and Broomberg & Chanarin, the shows feature image-based explorations of modern monitoring systems and data collection. Taken together, they promise a plethora of thought-provoking — if not unsettling — perspectives on the ever more blurry boundary between private and public life.
