JULIUS — ERNST RESTAURANT’S CASUAL LITTLE BROTHER FOR FINE LUNCHES AND SNACKS TO-GO

JULIUS — ERNST RESTAURANT’S CASUAL LITTLE BROTHER FOR FINE LUNCHES AND SNACKS TO-GO

Fine-dining destination Ernst attracted international attention when it opened in 2017, and not only because of its exclusive concept and “hidden” location in Wedding. The cuisine from talented founders Dylan Watson-Brawn and Spencer Christenson was so sought after that you could wait months for a table at the 12-seat restaurant. Luckily there’s now a second place you can taste the duo’s cuisine: Julius, the small, casual brother of Ernst that opened right across the street. The new neighbor does things a little differently, with a more accessibly priced menu and a walk-in dining policy (currently offering food and drink to-go). While Ernst is all about long, elaborate menus, Julius lets you order individual dishes at whim. The grab-and-go offerings change weekly, and recall the Japanese influences that Ernst is known for, like the brioche with green tea and verbena, the Japanese orange tarte and the chirashi bowl.

What hasn’t changed is the quality of the ingredients, which are sourced from the same artisan suppliers that Julius’s Michelin-starred sibling uses, such as Erdhof Seewalde in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern for the dairy produce. Restaurant manager and partner Inga Krieger was thrilled when the large-windowed space in the white building opposite Ernst became available, having been on the lookout for a second location for some time. As for the interior, the linen curtains, glazed front and dark wood furniture make this light, bright space an inviting place to dine. Outdoor seating is to follow as soon as conditions allow – we’ll be the first in line for a space on the terrace to enjoy a home-brewed, non-alcoholic blood orange, grapefruit and juniper honey drink or the self-roasted, hand-filtered coffee from Shoji Hara in the evening sun! For now, we’ll have to be content with the takeaway options: this weekend you can pick up the likes of donuts with white chocolate and cherry blossom for a little taster…

STUDIO WETTER — READY FOR SPRING SHOWERS WITH SUSTAINABLE UMBRELLAS

STUDIO WETTER — READY FOR SPRING SHOWERS WITH SUSTAINABLE UMBRELLAS

An umbrella that protects you from the rain, promises timeless design and is sustainably produced? How about the stylish umbrellas from Studio Wetter to get you ready for Berlin’s moody spring weather? The brand was founded in 2020 by friends Carla Dikdur, Larissa Hunekohl and Ramona Hartmann, who having worked in design and advertising, wanted to bring back the umbrella as an eye-catching accessory. As well as looking the part, these brollies are considerate in their construction: the materials are sourced from recycled plastic bottles, with climate-neutral production. The frame is made of flexible fiberglass struts, and is wind-tested, making it particularly stable in stormy gusts which can kill less robust constructions!

Manufacturing is located in Shenzhen, China, and is BSCI-certified, meaning that workers receive a fair wage, European labor standards are applied, and environmental standards are respected. The CO2 emissions generated during production and transport are offset by environmental projects such as Plastic Banks, an initiative letting people exchange plastic for money and essential goods. Studio Wetter offers a choice of six different color combinations via their online store, with the bright orange and beige our personal favorite. Maybe there really is no such thing as bad weather…

INDIEKINO CLUB — STREAMING SERVICE FROM BERLIN CINEMAS FOR INDEPENDENT FILM ON YOUR HOME SCREEN

INDIEKINO CLUB — STREAMING SERVICE FROM BERLIN CINEMAS FOR INDEPENDENT FILM ON YOUR HOME SCREEN

Quality over quantity is an oft-quoted mantra, but when it comes to movies it really is true. It’s a fact that the folks behind the Indiekino Club film streaming service know very well. Launched in February 2021 as a collaboration between ten Berlin indie cinemas and editors of Indiekino magazine Hendrike Bake and Thomas Dorow, the project is a true labor of film love. On the face of it, the platform is similar to the major streaming services: you pay a modest monthly charge that lets you stream a selection of films any time you like. But that’s where the similarities end. The club is run like an independent cinema, with a selection of up to 20 art house films in regular rotation. Every week, new movies take the place of old ones, so there are always new flicks to see. As for the library, the curation tends towards smaller international productions as opposed to the latest blockbusters.

Among the selection are some real gems, like the 2013 Japanese drama “Like Father, Like Son”, a tale of fatherhood and society that got a ten-minute standing ovation when it premiered at Cannes, and “Birds of Passage”, a 2018 Colombian-Danish co-production that follows a family’s involvement in the rise of drug trafficking in Colombia (you can view the full selection online). If, like us, you can’t wait to see films on the big screen again, there’s good news here too: membership to the club also includes a card which will get you a discount at the partner cinemas when they reopen. Count us in!

REVISITING THE WORKS OF A MUSIC PIONEER — HALIM EL-DABH AT SAVVY CONTEMPORARY

REVISITING THE WORKS OF A MUSIC PIONEER — HALIM EL-DABH AT SAVVY CONTEMPORARY

Through light and sound installations, sculptures, paintings and video as well as interactive music pieces Here History Began. Tracing the Re/verberations of Halim El-Dabh (until 09.05.2021) revisits the work and life of Eqyptian composer, ethnomusicologist, musician, pan-Africanist and philosopher, Halim El-Dabh (1921-2017). A result of five years of research, the group exhibition is a comprehensive physical archive and embodiment of El-Dabh’s work and those he has inspired. El-Dabh was largely left out of conversations surrounding the rise of electronic music, something that this retrospective puts right, revealing his great influence and establishing his place in the history of composition. Entering the gallery, one of the first pieces to catch your eye is Leo Asemota’s neon light installation featuring the words “ideas express you”. This notion – that ideas live beyond the physical being – is one that is embodied throughout this show.

Also visible are Lorenzo Sandoval’s archive curtains, which hang from the ceiling and are covered in prints with information and context about El-Dabh and his musical history. The space is dark, creating an almost sombre atmosphere, though light can be seen emanating from a huge screen behind Asemota’s work which presents Black Quantum Futurism’s video piece “Time Travel Experiments” exploring generational paradoxes and voyages through time. The darkness continues as you venture down to Savvy Contemporary’s basement where Vivian Caccuri’s sound installation occupies the room with fleeting noises of mosquitoes flying past you. The basement also houses what used to be an old industrial fridge, a space used here for Emeka Ogboh’s immersive installation of El-Dabh works that merges video, audio and physical elements. Take your shoes off before entering, sit down and let the sounds and rhythms of Halim El-Dabh take over your mind, body and spirit…
