KUSMI TEA — A GRAND OPENING FOR CHARITY

KUSMI TEA — A GRAND OPENING FOR CHARITY

With so many excellent coffee shops serving up perfectly poured lattes and third-wave filter coffees, it’s not news that Berlin has gone a bit coffee crazy in recent years. But what about the tea lovers out there? Where can we go for excellent tea, prepared properly and served at the right temperature? While there are a handful of shops, we find the best outcome for a nice cup o’ tea is to prepare our own at home. Showcasing countless varieties of teas, blends and infusions from black to green, herbal to fruit, a nice shop to pick up some warmth this season is Kusmi Tea. Celebrating the grand opening of its newest location here in Berlin on 15.12.17 — perfectly timed to coincide with the International Day of Tea — there’s no better day to refill your tea stocks, as Kusmi will offer 20% off your entire purchase (through 16.12.17) and donate 20% of their total grand opening revenue to Pink Ribbon Germany, a charity organization aimed to support breast cancer patients and increase awareness of the disease. Whether you’re tea inclined or just know someone who is, head to Kusmi Tea’s grand opening for tastes of their high-quality blends and recipes and support their charitable efforts, because after all — ‘tis the season for warm beverages and selfless holiday spirits.

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)

CHRISTMAS ALL WRAPPED UP: BIKINI’S BOLD INSTALLATION

CHRISTMAS ALL WRAPPED UP: BIKINI’S BOLD INSTALLATION

Huge panoramic windows give views of monkeys frolicking at the zoo and inside, things are a bit more festive, a bit more cozy, thanks to Bikini Berlin‘s “Christmas All Wrapped Up” installation — a modern take on the classic gift-wrapping station. The installation — designed by Berlin born and based artist duo, Zebu — was, naturally, inspired by Bikini’s proximity to the zoo and features large animal and present cut-outs that dance lightly from the ceiling, a larger than life giraffe that safely guards a station where you can pick up a warming glass of Berliner Winter, a colorful photo op set-up and three unique wrapping paper designs with funky animal characters and festive patterns. Cheery gift-wrappers are the center of it all, perfectly packaging your purchases (whether from Bikini or not) in the bold illustrated wrapping papers, topping them off with ribbons and bows. We’ll be getting our Christmas shopping done early this year, wrapping them up here and sending out a Christmas postcard (both for free!) to spread this year’s holiday spirit through vivid colors and jolly animal illustrations.

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)
