WILLNER BRAUEREI’S LAST STAND: LOST 48 HOURS ART FESTIVAL

WILLNER BRAUEREI’S LAST STAND: LOST 48 HOURS ART FESTIVAL

Since 2012, the old Willner Brewery in Wilmersdorf has served as an artist space, but — like much of the cultural monuments that make Berlin, Berlin — the brewery has been bought and will close its doors for good on 17.12.17. In one last stand to celebrate art in all its forms, the brewery will play host to the Lost Art Festival (15-17.12.17) — 48 hours straight of exhibitions, artist talks, live performances, cinema, and of course, dancing. Rooms that were previously inaccessible (even by the artists who used the space in recent years) will be opened up to the thrill seekers amongst us, while exhibitions will take place throughout the space. We’re intrigued by The Dark Rooms, which will cover 10 rooms over three floors — each room being individually staged by one artist. The tickets are free, but must be reserved ahead of time and are only available online in 12-hour time slots (you are free to come and go as you like during that time.) However, luckily for you, we have two pairs of exclusive 48 hour tickets to give away so you can take full advantage of the weekend to explore and take-in all types of art and inspiration. Email us your full name at win@ceecee.cc to enter, winners be notified by email tomorrow at noon — so don’t wait! (Text: Devan Grimsrud / Photos: Tadao Vern, Its The Vibe, WBB)

A SYNTHESIS OF KNOWLEDGE — PROJEKT BAUHAUS

A SYNTHESIS OF KNOWLEDGE — PROJEKT BAUHAUS

Operational from 1919 through 1933, Bauhaus was a German art school founded on the idea that various forms of art and knowledge would eventually be brought together. The concept of one interconnected knowledge was combined with an effort to emancipate the people, release their potential, and ultimately lead to the creation of a “new man.” Almost 100 years later, this Bauhaus led dream of the “new man” persists — now found in Silicon Valley. This Saturday (2.12.17) projekt bauhaus, an international initiative founded to conduct a lively debate on the currency of the Bauhaus, will present its “Preliminary Course: From Bauhaus to Silicon Valley” — the first of a three-part undertaking, which is to be followed by a workshop at the Floating University Berlin (2018) and a theater production at the Volksbühne Berlin (2019). Seeking to expose contradictions of the Western idea of progress and discuss alternative approaches, perhaps even saying farewell to Bauhaus’ “new man,” join the conversation this Saturday, featuring input from Morehshin Allahyari, Shaina Anand, Armen Avanessian, Brave New Alps, Jesko Fezer, Reinier de Graaf, Orit Halpern, Denisa Kera, Joachim Krausse, Claudia Mareis, Anh-Linh Ngo, Philipp Oswalt, Jussi Parikka, Joanne Pouzenc, Henrike Rabe, Bernd Scherer, Paloma Strelitz, Fred Turner and Georg Vrachliotis. Get tickets here, and broaden your mind at this one day course — see you there! (Text: Devan Grimsrud)

INDIAN STANDARD TIME — LOTS OF SPICE AND EVERYTHING NICE

INDIAN STANDARD TIME — LOTS OF SPICE AND EVERYTHING NICE

For over three years, three friends have been throwing a series of pop-up dinners spotlighting contemporary Indian foods under the name Indian Standard Time. What started as a passion project for Sarmishta — who grew up all over India, the pop-up has become a nearly bi-monthly event for a diverse mix of Berlin’s foodies to enjoy a delicious meal together. With help from hungry friends (hey, they get dinner too!), Sarmishta and Karthik (originally from Chennai) take care of the food — staying true to traditional recipes with a few creative twists here and there — while Thomas handles the generous wealth of drinks from unique beers to ice cold mango puree with cumin. We attended their Via Bollywood themed pop-up at Entretempo Kitchen Gallery in March 2017 and, even with warnings of “scharf” being whispered all around us, enjoyed every single bite and sip until we could – quite literally – eat no more. From crisp fried Bengali kachoris with a trio of dipping sauces to chilly vanilla kulfi topped with colorful gems of tutti frutti — all dishes were inspired by films from Bollywood’s yesteryears, with scenes being played throughout the night. Their next pop-up takes place this Saturday, themed with the season as an Indo-Holiday Feast with a cozy German twist. Check out the menu on their Facebook page, and shoot them a direct message for tickets. There aren’t many spots left, so scoop them up while you still can. (Text: Devan Grimsrud / Photos: Next City Berlin, Emanuale Liberalato)

VIDEOART AT MIDNIGHT: FILMS & ANIMATIONS BY TOBIAS ZIELONY

VIDEOART AT MIDNIGHT: FILMS & ANIMATIONS BY TOBIAS ZIELONY

Founded in 2008, Videoart at Midnight is an artists’ cinema project that occurs once a month at the historic Babylon in Mitte. We’ve featured the event in Cee Cee before, but are doing so again as tomorrow night (24.11.17) we’re looking forward to a selection of short video and animated films by German artist Tobias Zielony. Known best for his photographic depiction of juvenile minorities in suburban areas, Tobias began working with film in 2008, and it’s increasingly become a central part of his oeuvre. Somewhere between illusion and reality, melancholy and hope, eight of his films will be screened — giving viewers who are unfamiliar with his works a well-rounded introduction, and those who are already fans, a great opportunity to view these pieces again in a unique setting.

HAUNTING PORTRAITS — STÄRKE BY KRISTIAN SCHULLER

What are the results when a photographer known most for his work in high fashion is commissioned by The Federal Ministry of the Interior to capture police and emergency service people in their work? For one day only – next Wednesday (29.11.17) — you can find out. Photographer Kristian Schuller present “Stärke” — an exhibition featuring an exclusive selection of portraits taken as part of the “Strong for You. Strong for Germany” campaign, but previously unreleased. In addition to the haunting photographs on view — which provide an image of the person behind the uniform, visitors will have access to a special booklet which features quotes from the real servicemen and women featured in the portraits. What they have to say? Find out for yourself. (Text: Massimo Hartmann / Photos: Kristian Schuller c/o The Federal Ministry of the Interior)
