BACK TO BASICS WITH ADEQUATE ARCHIVE: LAUNCH PARTY TONIGHT

BACK TO BASICS WITH ADEQUATE ARCHIVE: LAUNCH PARTY TONIGHT

Brand new, Berlin-based clothing label Adequate Archive is throwing a launch party tonight (16.11.17) and you’re invited. The menswear label, founded in summer 2017 by fashion designer Friederike Haller and graphic designer Sascha Bente, focuses on basic garments but gives them a contemporary twist with subtle details and aesthetic typographic embroidery. From coats and sweaters to t-shirts and socks, Haller and Bente started Adequate Archive to create a free outlet for themselves to experiment and collaborate with other creatives. They hope to work with a variety of photographers, typographers, and textile manufacturers to make an archive of basics, and they might even work on a unisex collection. But that’s the future — tonight, you can be the first to browse their premiere collection and even place an order with a special launch event discount. See you there!

DON’T MISS THIS POP-UP: ROCKET & BASIL’S PERSIAN VEGGIE FEAST

DON’T MISS THIS POP-UP: ROCKET & BASIL’S PERSIAN VEGGIE FEAST

In July 2017, we attended the first Rocket & Basil Persian Feast where sisters Sophie and Xenia von Oswald (previously of the wildly popular Das Brunch) presented delicious Persian plates that spoke of summer in the plant-filled surrounds at Infarm. The glorious evening started with a spread of shared dishes: smoky fennel salad with preserved lemon dressing, warm charred eggplant and peppers sprinkled with fried parsley, and, my personal favorite, an egg-based Iranian dish called kuku that was studded with summer vegetables and fresh herbs. There’s no better way to break the ice than to share food with strangers, and the communal evening was one of the most fun we had all summer. Jealous? Don’t be! You can attend their next Persian feast this Sunday (19.11.17) at the former GDR dance hall at Treptower Park, Salon Blechschmidt. All dishes this time around will be vegetarian, and the menu is mouthwatering with Persian spiced hot toddys, brassicas with slow cooked tomato and dill sauce, savoy cabbage saffron tahdig (Persian scorched rice with a crispy brown shell that is to die for) and much more. Get a ticket before it sells out (the Saturday night seating already did!) and experience Rocket & Basil’s fantastic feast for yourself.

THE FEMALE GAZE: ΠMAGAZINE & ZIGN STORY LAUNCH PARTY

There are plenty of reasons to celebrate women but tomorrow night (10.11.17) there’ll be one more. Œ Magazine’s ninth issue is based on “The Female Gaze” and will be launching alongside fashion brand Zign’s original visual, short story campaign (aptly named #ZignStory) at one huge party in Prenzlauer Berg. Œ Magazine focuses on the Berlin fashion scene with striking images and this latest issue features the work of solely female photographers, stylists and hair and make-up artists. Full female power. In addition, Berlin-based fashion brand Zign is launching their #ZignStory campaign with the print product “American Short Stories,” shot by photographer Jonas Unger on location all around the USA. The campaign itself is a collaboration between photographers from around the world and Zign, as they put their own unique stamp on Zign’s shoes and accessories in their imagery. Keep an eye out for special surprises throughout the night and make sure to RSVP on Facebook to get your name on the list. (Text: Nina Trippel / Photos: Sven Hausherr, c/o Zign)

CONVERSAS — APPROACHABLE DIALOGUES WITH LIKE MINDS

CONVERSAS — APPROACHABLE DIALOGUES WITH LIKE MINDS

It’s easy to get stuck in your daily routine, longing for something new that might change your way of thinking, inspire you or lead to fresh connections. Here to help you break the cycle is Conversas Berlin — a weekly series of open discussions for sharing information and ideas. What started in Lisbon in 2012 has spread to other cities throughout Europe, landing in Berlin in 2016 thanks to organizers Sabrina Basten and Sarie Nijboer. The latest season will run every Wednesday evening until 29.11.17 at Blogfabrik in Kreuzberg. Each session features three different Conversadores (those who talk at Conversas), who bring their latest projects as topics to share with the group for 30 minutes. But this isn’t a one-sided presentation — it’s a conversation, where questions and interruptions are encouraged so both sides can benefit, learn and share. The evening we first attended featured dialogues with a multidisciplinary artist from Poland, a German performance and installation artist, and a graphic and spatial artist from Croatia. The events are free and open to everyone, so there’s no reason not to take part and discover the thought processes of interesting people just like you.

NO BOUNDARIES AT NEUE MEISTER CONCERT FT. PANTHA DU PRINCE

NO BOUNDARIES AT NEUE MEISTER CONCERT FT. PANTHA DU PRINCE

Through impressive pieces of music that span genres, the sixth installment of the ”Neue Meister” concert series at the Drive. Volkswagen Group Forum knows no boundaries. We’re excited for conceptual artist and composer Hendrik Weber (aka Pantha du Prince), who will present his recently released Mondholz project made in collaboration with German-Persian composer Arash Safaian and pianist Sebastian Knauer. Sharing the stage with the Deutsches Kammerorchester Berlinwill be a plethora of other artists and composers who will undoubtedly treat you to expressive rhythms, conceptual movements, and, overall, a grand evening of auditory illumination that flows between classic, electronic and pop.
