LIGHT & FLAVORFUL GOURMET SNACKING WITH KNALLE POPCORN

LIGHT & FLAVORFUL GOURMET SNACKING WITH KNALLE POPCORN

For your next movie night, desk snack drawer, stocking filler — or any point at which you need a delicious pick-me-up, note the name Knalle, a gourmet “Popkornditorei.” Founded by culinary mavericks Lucie Krautien and André Göbel — who are also behind the café Zuckerstück — Knalle’s popcorn is handmade in Berlin. With flavors ranging from Malabar pepper and sea salt to Thai curry roasted peanut, butter caramel-tahiti-vanilla or even the vegan tonka bean-coconut, it’s hard to settle on just one type. Good thing, then, that a taster pack of all seven varieties is available. Pop by their Friedrichshain store or order online. P.S. We’re offering a €5 discount on all orders over €30 with the code KNUSPERCEECEE at checkout. Happy crunching! (Text: Anna Dorothea Ker / Photos: Knalle)

A NEW GUIDE TO BERLIN’S INDEPENDENT LITERARY HOTSPOTS

A NEW GUIDE TO BERLIN’S INDEPENDENT LITERARY HOTSPOTS

As Germany’s cultural capital, Berlin would be incomplete without its jungle of charming independent bookshops. In October 2018, Argobooks, a local art book publisher, completed a two year long endeavor of cataloguing the top stores in Berlin – 173 of them in total. The Berlin Bookshop Map invites you to re-discover your neighborhood’s haunts. Stop by your local bookstore to pick up a copy of the map, slide into an alcove, and lose yourself in your new favorite novel. There’s Ägyptischer Kulturladen Papyri for Middle Eastern literature, Books People Places for a focus on architecture and urbanism, and Anagramm for a large children’s selection. If you’re seeking further literary discourse, many of Berlin’s shops host lectures, discussions, and classes – think Zabriskie’s “Between Us and Nature” reading club or Pro Qm’s book release readings. The Berlin Bookshop Map makes a delightful addition to any books you gift this holiday season. (Text: Michael Rice / Photos: Martina della Valle, Pro Qm, Pamina Aichhorn)

PLANT CIRCLE — AN OASIS FOR EXOTIC PLANTS AND WORKSHOPS

PLANT CIRCLE — AN OASIS FOR EXOTIC PLANTS AND WORKSHOPS

We’ve recently been spending more time in Neukölln’s green oasis — and we’re not talking about Tempelhofer Feld, but rather a new shop in Schillerkiez which opened its doors in May 2018, just in time for the gardening and balcony season. Specializing in all things green, the concept store brings together three ventures: Ania Grzeszek’s Kaliko, Maya Sriqui’s Garden State and the eponymous online shop Plant Circle by Monika Kalinowska. The store not only offers rare species such as fishbone cacti or jewel orchids but also plant swap parties and numerous workshops (like candle making using soy wax or plant-based textile dyeing). Even those whose fingers aren’t so green will find something for them here — such as a workshop called “How not to kill your plants”, during which you’ll learn how to transform your home into a more lush oasis. And in case you needed yet another reason to visit, Plant Circle plants a tree for each plant that’s purchased, and Garden State donates a portion of the proceeds of their candles to animal shelters.

SAVVY CONTEMPORARY: BEYOND THE WESTERN GAZE IN WEDDING

SAVVY CONTEMPORARY: BEYOND THE WESTERN GAZE IN WEDDING

Cameroon-born Bonaventure Ndikung, who originally studied biotechnology, quickly became part of the Berlin art scene through his work as a curator for some of the city’s major institutions, including Documenta 14. Frustrated with the industry’s eurocentricity, he opened an independent project space, Savvy Contemporary, to foster artistic dialogues freed from the Western gaze on Africa, South America and Asia. After establishing the project in Neukölln in 2013, Ndikung moved to Wedding, where he re-opened Savvy Contemporary on the grounds of the Silent Green Kulturquartier, a former crematorium with an impressive ceremonial hall. There, he hosts exhibitions and performances, organizes readings and directs local projects in collaboration with the Goethe Institut and other cultural organizations. A highlight of the current program — on through 11.3 — is “We Are Not Worried In The Least”, a video-based exhibition by the Egyptian-Polish filmmaker, artist and activist Jasmina Metwaly, which explores the mundanity, violence and paranoia framing Egypt’s current political mood.

WITH LOVE FROM ATHENS — THE LITTLE GREEK POP UP STORE

WITH LOVE FROM ATHENS — THE LITTLE GREEK POP UP STORE

Blue is a characteristically Greek shade – anyone who has visited the Mediterranean nation knows the unique aquamarine blue of the sea. And without Greek mountain tea, my beloved leather sandals from Athens, and my sun cream from beauty brand Korres, my days would only be half as wonderful. Well, luckily the Greek Curated Pop Up now offers various fashion and accessory labels all from the Land of Hellas for you to browse. Greek Dimitra Zavakou has brought Greek brands to Berlin, such as Waikiki Andros, or Salty Bags. Furthermore, at the opening (27.6.2016) there will be Greek Tapas and aperitifs. Cheers, or simply: Στην υγειά μας! (Text: Milena Kalojanov)
