KOSTAS MURKUDIS RECOMMENDS: OBJECT40 & ARIANE HOSEMANN

KOSTAS MURKUDIS RECOMMENDS: OBJECT40 & ARIANE HOSEMANN

Now that I have lived in Charlottenburg for many years, and I’ve been able to see how this part of the city has positively changed, it’s been a nice surprise to stroll through the streets and stumble upon art galleries and studios like Object40 on Schulüterstraße — which specializes in displaying art from artists of the former DDR, Karl-Heinz Adler or Friedrich Kracht just to name a few. I appreciate that they are providing a platform here to showcase their impressive art.

Another very personal recommendation I have for this weekend, are the exhibition of photographs by Ariane Hosemann. What unites her artworks is their distinct characteristics, and her value of this position, but also her individual, habitual search for congruity — which she questions consistently with her work. Her impressive series “Feuer” (“Fire”) is on display from tomorrow night (21.4.2017) at the new M+ Projekt artspace. (Text: Kostas Murkudis / Photos: Ariane Hoseman (L), c/o Object40 (M, R))

VERONIKA FORSYTHE RECOMMENDS: BLUME & RAUM

VERONIKA FORSYTHE RECOMMENDS: BLUME & RAUM

Walking towards this hidden gem, it might feel like you’re intruding on the front yard of an abandoned ground floor apartment. However after opening the small old metal gate, stepping over sporadically-placed plants, you’ll find yourself facing a few steps leading to sweet little door that appears far too small for any grown adult. Don’t let this deter you. Inside waits a calm and peaceful haven filled with a balanced collection of simple and exotic buckets of flowers, surrounded by homely arrangements and display tables presenting decorative treasures. If, like me, you never have enough beautiful plants and trinkets or you want to treat someone to an unique bouquet, then take a little detour from your next canal-side walk to let owner Jana Zschömitzsch help you find exactly what you’re looking for.

ANIKA PAULUS RECOMMENDS: SCHWESTERHERZ & KÜCHENLIEBE

ANIKA PAULUS RECOMMENDS: SCHWESTERHERZ & KÜCHENLIEBE

I love beautiful things. I don’t mean trinkets, but rather good quality, long-lasting products that make everyday work and life easier and more beautiful. Those who share this passion should pay a visit to Schwesterherz und Küchenliebe: two of Berlin’s finest stores for paper and gifts, as well as cooking utensils. Owner Ellen Teschendorf founded the pint-sized shops at Boxhagener Platz, following her heart’s desire to create a space for beautiful objects and gifts in Friedrichshain. Further outposts have since followed across town. To this day, love, passion and attention to detail characterize the selection, which includes classics as well as emerging brands and designers. Both shops allow you to browse in peace, but don’t hesitate to request a recommendation for to the perfect gift for your loved one — or even just for yourself. (Text & Photos: Anika Paulus)

CLAUDIA SCHOEMIG RECOMMENDS: MERCEARIA AUS PORTUGAL

CLAUDIA SCHOEMIG RECOMMENDS: MERCEARIA AUS PORTUGAL

“In Portugal’s restaurants and cafés, the question asked by waiters after the meal isn’t whether you’ve had enough to eat, but instead whether you’re satisfied.” And satisfaction is just the feeling you’re left with after eating at the family-run Mercearia aus Portugal. Owner Júlia has managed to carve out a name for herself amongst Prenzlauer Berg’s many cafés, thanks to her fine coffee and an array of charming homemade tartlets and speciality cakes. The classic pastel de nata makes an appearance, and for more peckish guests, at least one warm lunch dish — such as Portuguese stockfish — is offered every day. Comfortably furnished with a view over Helmholzplatz, Mercearia is the perfect feel-good spot for a relaxing afternoon. (Text: Claudia Schoemig)

NINA BLEIBER RECOMMENDS: KANTINE KOHLMANN

NINA BLEIBER RECOMMENDS: KANTINE KOHLMANN

Berlin cuisine — it’s officially making a comeback. But this time around, the good old ingredients are being reinvented in exciting new forms. At Kantine Kohlmann, small sharing plates and bites are delivered to wooden tables — modern, seasoned and flavorful. Owner Ulrike Kabyl recommends the beetroot and coriander tartare. It’s fresh, creamy and spicy. The concept of Kantine Kohlmann is to allow several small bites to make up one dish, making for a very sociable way to enjoy a meal. For dessert, I pick the pistachio parfait. It arrives accompanied by a chocolate tart and quince caramel, making it the best possible conclusion to a meal — hot-cold, crunchy-creamy and salty-sweet. But it’s not over yet: your nightcap awaits nearby. Head down a dark corridor towards a heavy, leather-clad door to enter the restaurant’s in-house bar. There you’ll find a blazing fireplace surrounded by generous green leather armchairs. Sink into one with a cocktail or a digestif. And yes, you can smoke. (Text: Nina Bleiber)
