INTO WORLDS: THREE DAYS OF TOTAL IMMERSION

INTO WORLDS: THREE DAYS OF TOTAL IMMERSION

When was the last time you lost yourself an alternative reality? From the 19-21.1.2018, the Berliner Festspiele’s“Immersion” program will launch for the year, inviting visitors to delve into its namesake theme with the conference “Into Worlds. The Craft of Blurring Boundaries”. The three days will bring together artists and leading researchers from around the world to explore three forms of immersive arts: physical techniques and crafts, entertainment formats and spiritual mental practices. Taking place in the Lichthof of Martin-Gropius-Bau, the program offers an extensive range of lectures and workshops that reflect upon the mechanisms of immersion, and the effects and implications of immersive phenomena on our society. Attendees are invited to put theory into practice through virtual reality experiences, sound installations, and artistic interventions — making for a wonderful opportunity to escape the January blues and immerse yourself mentally and physically into other worlds of engagement. (Text: Lucy Thorpe / Photos (clockwise, from left): MGB Presse / Thomas Struth / David OReilly)

SWISS FASHION NIGHT: NEW TALENT IN THE EMBASSY

SWISS FASHION NIGHT: NEW TALENT IN THE EMBASSY

We are pleased to announce that Berlin Fashion Week has added a new highlight to their calendar this season: Swiss Fashion Night. Fashion designers from all over Switzerland will be presenting their work in a showroom, followed by a fashion show. Among these creative minds are Claudia Nabholz, a label with an eye on sustainability that captivates with geometric shapes and a hand-picked combination of materials, Balseca Weber, a Finnish-Ecuadorian duo based in Zurich that designs feminine silhouettes worthy of a grand entrance, and MDK, an accessory brand that creates bags for urban nomads. One thing is certain: the Swiss fashion world is as diverse as the alpine mountain landscape. Though the Swiss Fashion Night is primarily an event for fashion connoisseurs, with a litte bit of luck you can be there, too. We are able to give away two exclusive tickets! If you would like to walk the red carpet of the residence of the Swiss embassy alongside diplomats and stars, please leave a comment on our Instagramand send an email with your name, address and telephone number to win@ceecee.cc. The winner will be notified by phone. Good luck to you! For all of you following Fashion Week from your couch, we will be streaming Instagram stories live from the show. You should also check out the Swiss Fashion Night’s instagram account, which can serve as a fashion inspiration to you. (Text: Nina Trippel / Photos: Claudia Nabholz, Swiss Fashion Night)

POLISH THURSDAY DINNERS: CULTURAL NETWORKING & CUISINE

POLISH THURSDAY DINNERS: CULTURAL NETWORKING & CUISINE

For just over three years, Polish Thursday Dinners have brought all sorts of Berliners together around a table of modern Polish cuisine. The brainchild of Julia Bosski, the cultural networking events that are her dinners present not only fantastic meals, but an exciting chance to meet new people and maybe, just maybe, be entertained by the whirlwind that is Julia — jazz singer and entrepreneur that she is. We’ve had the chance to attend a few of her fabulous dinners, and can’t believe we haven’t recommended it before. A large communal table buzzed to life as the seats were filled, Julia herself attending to the chef in the tiny open kitchen — drink in hand. Introducing herself and her concept to the crowd, her energy was overwhelmingly positive and extremely palpable — leading to many conversations being started among friends and strangers alike.

PHYSICAL MEETS DIGITAL: ZEITGUISED & X-MAGAZINE

PHYSICAL MEETS DIGITAL: ZEITGUISED & X-MAGAZINE

Whether it’s lifelike animation, 3D design and printing, or augmented reality — the world is moving ever faster towards the intersection of what’s physical and what’s digital. Here to take that idea on headfirst is the award winning Berlin-based studio, Zeitguised — who produce exquisite realities which linger between art and design. In their fourth collaboration on “phygital (physical + digital)” objects, they’ve paired up with Japanese bag designer Toshiki Tagisawa and his label X-Magazine. Combining cutting edge digital manufacturing methods with Japanese craft, the Bagashi bags have a unique feature: they are all designed and made around a ‘hole’. The Zeitguised design algorithm produced unpredicted shapes that virtually cut through the bags (of course acting only as a window, not a real hole) and the rest is handmade by Toshiki and his team in Japan. In a limited edition of 100, in 5 color schemes, we can’t wait to see how this combination comes together. See them in person at the Bagashi bag launch at Firmament next Monday (15.1.2018) from 18h. Monday nights never looked so good. (Text: Massimo Hartmann / GIF: Zeitguised)

ASK HELMUT’S SURPRISE: SUREFIRE SPONTANEITY

ASK HELMUT’S SURPRISE: SUREFIRE SPONTANEITY

There are two types of people in this world: those who plan ahead, and those who wait until the last minute. There are benefits and downfalls on both sides, but now, we can all be a bit more spontaneous thanks to Ask Helmut’s Surprise — a blind date of sorts for great events all over Berlin. So how does it work? Head to Ask Helmut’s website and buy a pair of Helmut Surprise tickets for a night of your choosing. Then, all you have to do is wait. At noon on the day of your event, you’ll receive an email with all the details of your event, which could range from a big theater production to an intimate concert, a film screening to a fine artist performance. The events span disciplines but are all hand-selected by the Helmut team. With the holidays right around the corner, you can plan a fun evening out with a friend, or gift them a Surprise voucher so they can pick their own date and bring someone of their choosing. Curiosity may have killed the cat, but in this instance, I think your curiosity will only serve to excite. (Text: Devan Grimsrud / GIF: Ask Helmut)
