HELFEN.BERLIN: ONLINE VOUCHERS FOR SUPPORTING YOUR FAVORITE PLACES

HELFEN.BERLIN: ONLINE VOUCHERS FOR SUPPORTING YOUR FAVORITE PLACES

With many of us staying at home, bars, restaurants, shops and cafés are facing a significant loss of income, threatening the existence of the very places that make Berlin unique. While there’s no easy solution, luckily one initiative is trying to help out: the Helfen.Berlin voucher shop. Through their site, you can buy vouchers of between €10 and 100€ and in doing so help these small businesses cover their fixed costs. Then once we are allowed out again you can use your voucher to enjoy a nice moment with friends. The site features more than 900 locations, including many we know and love, like cinema Il Kino, where you can watch art house films before reviewing them with friends at the cocktail bar afterwards. The vegan, sustainable restaurant Frea is also a wonderful place to meet your pals, while at Konk you will find plenty of presents for upcoming birthdays from small Berlin labels. Finally, why not buy a round ahead of time with a voucher for Flaschenzug Bar, which serves dignified drinks in a welcoming atmosphere. This initiative not only shows solidarity but is a great way to start looking forward to meeting your friends again. And if you want to get your non-Berlin people involved, #supportyourlocal is taking the same idea all over Germany.

SUBTLE SHADES FOR EVERY WALL — LIMEWASH PAINTS FROM BAUWERK COLOUR

SUBTLE SHADES FOR EVERY WALL — LIMEWASH PAINTS FROM BAUWERK COLOUR

Giving your apartment a well-deserved zhoosh up is a satisfying way to spend time indoors, and paint in particular can really transform your surroundings. We often find regular Baumarkt paints lack depth and subtlety, which is why we were glad to learn about the limewash colors from the Bauwerk Colour team at a lovely dinner with our friends from Woodboom and Taube Grau. Limewash is a traditional paint made from calcium carbonate that gives a natural, matte finish to your walls. Originally from Perth, Australia, Bauwerk now offer their sustainably-sourced, solvent-free paints in Germany from their online shop. The shades are as diverse as they are tasteful, from the light bright “Pineapple” yellow, the mellow “Elkhorn” gray – perfect for the living room – and the soothing “Leek” green. If you aren’t quite sure what hue to pick, you can upload a photo to get color matches, with color cards and sample pots available for simple swatching. Time to get out your brush and roller and give your walls new life. (Text: Benji Haughton / Photos: Melissa Team Tonkin, Raphael Bartke & Bauwerk Colour)

BEETS&ROOTS — HEALTHY BOWLS FOR A COLORFUL LUNCH

On busy days at the (home)office, it can be easy to forget to plan a tasty, filling lunch. At the Cee Cee office in Mitte, Beets&Roots has long been one of our favorite options for a healthy, hassle-free midday meal that satisfies all tastes. With a selection of healthy bowls, salads and wraps, there’s always something on the menu to match your mood, be it a vegan burrito bowl with smoked bbq tofu and creamy avocado, a spicy falafel wrap or a classic quinoa caesar salad (vegan and gluten-free requirements are well catered for). While the restaurant is currently closed for eating in, you can pre-order for quick pick-up in one of their four locations or get your lunch delivered right to your door within the Mitte area. One more thing: the Beets team is offering a 75 percent discount on orders for hospital workers, caregivers and public officials. We take our hats off.

MOVING ARTISTIC FRONTIERS: ROGER EBERHARD’S PHOTOGRAPHS OF ARTIFICIAL BORDERS

MOVING ARTISTIC FRONTIERS: ROGER EBERHARD’S PHOTOGRAPHS OF ARTIFICIAL BORDERS

In these times of nationalism and seclusion, Swiss photographer Roger Eberhard has devoted his work to one of their main symbols: borders. In his book “Human Territoriality” Eberhard demonstrates that geographic boundaries are little more than arbitrary guidelines. Every border, no matter how solid it appears, is transient and can change or indeed disappear over time – be it through war, annexation or natural disaster. Eberhard has travelled to places across the world that haven’t been demarcated for a long time. He went to the Great Wall of China and Hadrian’s Wall, took photos at Walvis Bay in Namibia and in Rydöbruk, Sweden, where an erratic glacial block once served to separate territories. In some places relics delineate former border zones; elsewhere there is nothing left to remind us of the demarcation lines of the past. This book illustrates how, little by little, nature is regaining its terrain whilst proving that borders are nothing but a fictional construct.

UNITED WE STREAM: LIVE DJ SETS FOR A LIVING ROOM PARTY FOR ONE

Staying inside doesn’t mean we have to deprive ourselves of good grooves. United We Stream is bringing Berlin’s best clubs right into your living room – no queueing necessary. In collaboration with over 250 Berlin clubs and venues recently forced to close, this online channel is live broadcasting DJ sets several nights of the week to raise money for nightclub workers and artists in need. Tonight (26.03.2020) tune in for a techno line up from Anomalie Art Club, the multidisciplinary art and culture venue. Then over the weekend, Kreuzberg’s Ritter Butzke and SchwuZ are continuing the party with house and 80s/90s throwback jams (program here). Handy tip: you can also support United We Stream by ordering supplies from the Stay at Home Club which delivers brands like Ostmost, Einhorn and Sirplus right to your doorstep, donating €5 for every order placed. Time to tune in and keep the spirits high. (Text: Andreea Dragos / Photos: Agustín Farías & Anomalie)
