CHARGE UP ON E-MOBILITY KNOWLEDGE — START TO DRIVE ELECTRIC

CHARGE UP ON E-MOBILITY KNOWLEDGE — START TO DRIVE ELECTRIC

If lithium-ion cells, AC fast charging and regenerative braking sound like a foreign language to you, then it’s time to wise up on e-mobility. Soon all your road journeys will be electrically powered, so it’s only right to get informed about this alternative energy. The “Start to Drive Electric” exhibition, opening on 12.03.2020 at the Drive Volkswagen Group Forum on Friedrichstraße, is your highway to this knowledge. Packed with interactive displays showing the cutting edge in four-wheeled technology, it promises immersive learning that’s the opposite to a session on Wikipedia. The highlight is The Accelerator, a 360 degree walk-in cinema where you learn about e-mobility not just with facts and figures, but feelings and emotions too. Besides showing you the underlying tech, the exhibition also hosts discussions on topics like driving feel and design, as well as practical advice on charging and vehicle range. And for those heading to the opening night, there will be a special musical treat to get things shifted into higher gear. Welcome to the electric era. (Text: Benji Haughton / Photos: VW Drive)

HALB HALB: LITERATURE–MUSIC MASHUP — DANCEFLOOR ACTION INCLUDED

HALB HALB: LITERATURE–MUSIC MASHUP — DANCEFLOOR ACTION INCLUDED

It’s not often that we see a literary event and club night at the same time and place. But there’s much to be gained from bringing together these two expressive forms, especially when the creative lineup is as rich and full of surprises as at Halb Halb (06.03.2020) at Rixdorf’s Arkaoda club. The night is a collab between Berlin lit collective Kabeljau & Dorsch and arty partymakers Cereals which starts with readings, segues into live music and ends up as a full-blown party. Writer Marius Goldhorn starts proceedings with a reading of his tales of an increasingly insecure Europe, followed by a selection of Ianina Ilitcheva’s 40,000 Twitter ministories read by Luise Hart. The musical half of the night kicks off with a wave-garage-synth-punk gig from Berliner band Das Das, before the disco ball is lit up for a danceable set by Andre Pahl. Closing up the night, Cereal co-founders Smidek and Balaban will get behind the booth to bring funky flashes and guaranteed grooves. This mashup of words and tunes is something we can get behind.

BERLIN TRAVEL FESTIVAL: GET THE SCOOP ON THE LATEST TRIP TRENDS WITH WORKSHOPS, TALKS AND MORE

BERLIN TRAVEL FESTIVAL: GET THE SCOOP ON THE LATEST TRIP TRENDS WITH WORKSHOPS, TALKS AND MORE

Unfortunately, the Berlin Travel Festival will be postponed until further notice due to a case of COVID-19. We will keep you up to date and inform you as soon as there is a new date!

Ready for your next getaway? Well your first destination should be Arena Berlin, where a weekend of travel trends, tips and tricks awaits at the Berlin Travel Festival (06.–08.03.2020). Under the motto “Where Is Paradise?”, organizers have invited pro travellers and innovators to share their stories and debate the issues of the day – not least how to travel the world and still maintain your green karma. The 150 speakers and 200 exhibitors are bound to awaken your imagination: How about some road trip planning with motorhome startup Paul Camper? Or discovering magical Canary Island forests at the La Gomera stand, before securing your very own sustainable cabin in the woods with Cabin Experience? Speaking of wilderness, get yourself prepared at survival expert Manuel Larbig’s workshops on finding emergency food and making fire. Most importantly: come see us at the Cee Cee booth and join in our workshop. More details – and a prize draw – next week! Until then you can discover the highlights in the festival magazine, designed by our very own Cee Cee Creative. (Text: Benji Haughton / Photos: Julia Luka Lila Nietzschke for Travel Festival, Sophie Döring)

GOOD DEEDS AND NEW THOUGHTS — FLEA MARKET AND ARTIST LECTURE AT MARSANO

GOOD DEEDS AND NEW THOUGHTS — FLEA MARKET AND ARTIST LECTURE AT MARSANO

Don’t know what to do with all those unworn t-shirts and pants in your wardrobe? How about the indoor flea market at Marsano this Saturday (29.02.2020)? With the motto “Great women sell great clothes”, this fashion treasure trove is for a good cause. Numerous clothing, interior and jewellery designers will be bringing their collections, including Cee Cee favorites Lala Berlin and the elegant Thone Negrón. And every visitor is invited to bring and donate their own clothes to Evas Haltestelle – an emergency shelter for homeless women in Wedding – and charity Caritas. Time for a rummage through your wardrobe we think. If you don’t have time this weekend, we’ve got another event to look forward to at Marsano. On 06.03. Berlin-based artist Sonya Schönberger will be presenting her lecture, “Kenyan Roses for the Kingdom“, which takes a behind-the-scenes look at the Kenyan cut rose industry, revealing colonial entanglements that still have an impact today. Two weeks, two flowery and worthwhile events. (Text: Sophie Döring / Photos: Marsano, Sonya Schönberger)

BERLINALE LOUNGE: MASTERCLASSES, TALKS AND MORE — RIGHT NEXT TO THE RED-CARPET GLITZ AND GLAMOUR

BERLINALE LOUNGE: MASTERCLASSES, TALKS AND MORE — RIGHT NEXT TO THE RED-CARPET GLITZ AND GLAMOUR

The city is once again abuzz with cineasts hoping to catch some films and maybe a glimpse of a famous face – we’ve heard Willem Dafoe might make an appearance – at the 70th edition of the Berlinale. And while it’s all about the films – and the competition for the Golden Bear – there’s a lot more to the 11-day gala, with mind-broadening masterclasses, engaging conversations on media and special events to check out. Mere steps away from the red carpet at Potsdamer Platz, the Audi Berlinale Lounge is a hub for all that. Everyone can join in the Berlin Open House program, from budding filmmakers to casual movie lovers. The days start with energizing morning yoga classes followed by panel discussions, workshops and talks with industry gurus on topics like sustainability in film and how to self-market your skills in the industry. After a hard day watching films, you can drop by for a cocktail as musicians, DJs and open mic sessions provide the entertainment. The open lounge is the perfect spot to sit back and let the festival wash over you. (Text: Andreea Dragos / Fotos: Benjamin Diedering für Audi, Simon Hegenberg)

We’re giving away a pair of tickets to each of the Lounge Nights including Lui Hill, 26.02., Silent Party, 27.02., and FIVA MC, 28.02. Email us at win@ceecee.cc for a chance to win.
