FOOD FOR THE EYES: AFTER-WORK TOURS & DRINKS AT C/O BERLIN

FOOD FOR THE EYES: AFTER-WORK TOURS & DRINKS AT C/O BERLIN

Food is more than nutrition: we are what we eat, after all. No wonder, then, that the genre of “food photography” is as diverse as our lives themselves, dealing with topics ranging from family, culture and consumption to lust and disgust. If you want to explore the idea of food as an image in a broader context, and not just via #Foodporn on Instagram, come to the after-work guided tour of C/O Berlin’s current show, “Food for the Eyes“. In addition to absurd sausage arrangements by the Swiss artist duo Peter Fischli and David Weiss – a humorous reflection of our relationship to food – pictures from British artist Martin Parr show the relationship between a healthy world and an affluent society. Parallel to this show is the “Contradiction” exhibition, a collection of photographs by Elfie Semotan. A former model, Semotan began her career in front of the camera before changing sides and gaining international attention with collaborations with Helmut Lang, her photographs blurring the line between art and commerce. The tours begin today (18.07.2019) at 19h and 19h30, and to help you digest the works, a drink is of course also offered.

Tickets are available here and at the box office 30 minutes before the event starts.

UNSELECT FESTIVAL: DISCOVERING STUNNING SPACES WITH THE KLEINE HUMBOLDT GALERIE

UNSELECT FESTIVAL: DISCOVERING STUNNING SPACES WITH THE KLEINE HUMBOLDT GALERIE

A former auditorium at the Charité, enchanted greenhouses in Dahlem and the Physics Institute at the Humboldt University are only three of the ten unusual locations that the curators of the Kleine Humboldt Galerie will convert into exhibition spaces to mark its tenth anniversary this week. To celebrate, the student-run project, which has been housed in the Lichthof Ost at Humboldt since 2009, will host a multi-day art festival with performances, workshops, and lectures. Using the title Unselect as inspiration, artists will address questions related to ‘selection’ processes: where do natural selection patterns have an effect? Why might choice go hand in hand with isolation? And how do those who escape the “Survival of the Fittest” model survive? Anyone who can’t make it to the festival’s events are still in luck: the main show can be seen for a whole month at the Lichthof Ost, Under den Linden.

ART AFTER WORK — EXHIBIT, TALK & MUSIC IN THE BERLINISCHE GALERIE WITH JUNG UND ARTIG AND REALITIES:UNITED

ART AFTER WORK — EXHIBIT, TALK & MUSIC IN THE BERLINISCHE GALERIE WITH JUNG UND ARTIG AND REALITIES:UNITED

Hot summer evenings are best spent away from home. And if you are interested in art and the discussion around the transition to clean energy, we have a little something for you: A talk with Jan Edler, known for his famous Flussbad Berlin project. On 17.07.2019 the Berlinische Galerie and Jung und Artig are hosting an exclusive talk about the Realities:united project together with the artist and the director and curator of the exhibition, Dr. Thomas Köhler. It’s bound to be an interesting evening discussing the intersectionality of culture and art. Jung und Artig is one of Berlin’s largest networks of art lovers under 30, so there is sure to be plenty of creative young people and lively discussion. Following the talk there will be time to take a curated walk through the exhibition and socialize over art, music and drinks. It’s the perfect way to spend an evening out after work. Entrance is limited but we have one set of two tickets up for grabs for Cee Cee readers! Just send your first and last name and date of birth to win@ceecee.cc. Good luck!

MILENA KALOJANOV RECOMMENDS: TAG DER ARCHITEKTUR 2019 — NEW ARCHITECTURE IN BERLIN

MILENA KALOJANOV RECOMMENDS: TAG DER ARCHITEKTUR 2019 — NEW ARCHITECTURE IN BERLIN

Year in, year out, the question remains: Does space form the people that use it, or is it the people that form the space around them? This year, the Berlin Chamber of Architecture’s motto is “Räume prägen”: Spaces shape. And because seeing is believing, it’s time to let architects and landscape architects show us their recently completed projects on the 2019 Tag der Architektur (Day of Architecture). All across the city, they’ll be opening the doors to their work spaces for a peek into their practice. For anyone who wants to get an up-to-date picture of contemporary architecture and meet the makers in this field (be warned: the list is extensive!), this is your chance. We are looking forward to visiting some hidden gems: the apartment building “einfach gebaut” (simply built) by Orange Architekten; the office building at Ritterstr. 8 by BCO Architekten; Frizz23, the new project on Lindenstraße by Deadline Architekten and IBeB by IfauHeide & von Beckerath. Our tour comes to an end at the office of Kadawittfeldarchitekten, located in the former “Haus des Reisens” (House of Travel), where we enjoy the view over Berlin and Alexanderplatz.

STATE OPERA FOR ALL: CLASSICAL MUSIC WITH ONLY THE SKY ABOVE YOU

STATE OPERA FOR ALL: CLASSICAL MUSIC WITH ONLY THE SKY ABOVE YOU

Imagine transforming a space right in the middle of a hectic metropolis into an open auditorium for Daniel Barenboim’s orchestra? Well, the Staatsoper Unter den Linden is doing just that by taking to the streets, or rather Bebelplatz, once again. For one weekend only, you will be able to enjoy the sight and sound of the Staatsoper Berlin with only the sky above you, seeing the opera – literally – in a new light. Events start this Saturday (15.06.2019, 15h) with a live big-screen broadcast of Wagner’s “Tristan und Isolde” directed by Dmitri Tcherniakov, with Barenboim conducting. The outdoor music continues on Sunday 16.06.2019 at 13h with an open-air symphony concert by the Staatskapelle Berlin, including works by Mendelssohn and Brahms. A violin concerto featuring prize-winning violinist Jiyoon Lee is bound to be a highlight. But the Opera for All weekend has always been more than just music: it’s about bringing Berliners of all sorts – old and young, opera buffs and newcomers – together. Our tip for these free-of-charge performances: bring your own chair and picnic for the full outdoor experience.
