NULL PROZENT POP-UP: ALCOHOL-FREE SPÄTI & BRUNCH AT HALLESCHES HAUS

NULL PROZENT POP-UP: ALCOHOL-FREE SPÄTI & BRUNCH AT HALLESCHES HAUS

Sekt for brunch, a beer with lunch and a glass of red wine after dark: it’s easy to see how alcohol can become a regular part of our lives. But are there any good ethanol-free alternatives? If any exist, you will certainly find them at the Null Prozent Pop-up, a completely alcohol-free drinks kiosk at Hallesches Hausrunning throughout the whole of “Sober October”. In addition to usual suspects like Rotkäppchen sekt, awaiting you at the Kreuzberg shop are a range of over 100 drinks including many innovative local brews, all with 0% alcohol. One highlight is the distillates from Berlin-based Easip, who brew using natural and plant-based raw materials, with no artificial flavors, sweeteners or sugar added. You can enjoy your drinks directly in the shop’s neighboring backyard or head out to the canalside opposite. For the full experience, head to the Hallesches Haus lunchroom from 10h Wed-Sun where you can build your own brunch from the new menu, accompanied of course with a tasty zero-percent tipple of your choice. Cheers! (Text: Bui Luu Quynh Nguyen / Photos: Bui Luu Quynh Nguyen & Null Prozent)

DISCOVER DESIGN UP CLOSE: AEDES ARCHITECTURE FORUM — RECOMMENDED BY MENGYA HUANG

DISCOVER DESIGN UP CLOSE: AEDES ARCHITECTURE FORUM — RECOMMENDED BY MENGYA HUANG

We often find that our daily pleasures derive from the environment we find ourselves in. But we are rarely given the chance to know why such places are designed to look a certain way or how they can be improved. The Aedes Architecture Forum in Berlin shines a spotlight on these questions, bringing us closer to architecture in both a professional and genial way. Located in a beautifully renovated brick factory at Prenzlauer Berg’s Pfefferberg, the space consists of two exhibition halls, a lecture hall and a café. Throughout the year, you can find exhibitions and lectures celebrating the world’s most distinguished architects and designers, such as the current exhibition Architectural Experiments in Material and Form from Vancouver-based Omer Arbel featuring sculptures, models and drawings (until 22.10.2020). All activities and events are free for visitors, making the Aedes a paradise for lovers of architecture. For the architects and designers, it is a unique platform to share their work with an engaged public, representing an important stage in the growth of contemporary architecture.

PRIVATE ACCESS: DISCOVERING EUROPE’S EXCLUSIVE ART COLLECTIONS

PRIVATE ACCESS: DISCOVERING EUROPE’S EXCLUSIVE ART COLLECTIONS

Ever wondered about the countless privately-owned art collections that exist all over Europe? All is revealed in Skadi Heckmüller’s book Private Access, which presents 90 places housing private art across Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Short, informative texts give an introduction to well-known exhibition venues such as the Museum Barberini in Potsdam or the Fondation Beyeler near Basel. But there are also insider tips well off the beaten track: for photography lovers the village of Kummerow in Mecklenburg is well worth a stop, with works by Ute and Werner Mahler, Thomas Demand and Wolfgang Tillmans displayed on the walls of a baroque castle. Meanwhile in the extensive grounds of the former studio of Georg Baselitz at Schloss Derneburg near Hildesheim, an American collector couple present top-class contemporary art. Down by Chiemsee lake is the village of Traunreut, where art dealer Heiner Friedrich – who co-initiated the renowned Dia Art Foundation in New York – runs an exhibition of light art by Dan Flavin. The guide provides useful navigation advice as well as local restaurant recommendations. Time to get planning your next art adventure!
