BERLIN FOOD WEEK — FESTIVAL OF CUISINE RETURNS WITH SUSTAINABLE FINE DINING EVENTS AND A HAMBURG CHEF IN BERLIN

BERLIN FOOD WEEK — FESTIVAL OF CUISINE RETURNS WITH SUSTAINABLE FINE DINING EVENTS AND A HAMBURG CHEF IN BERLIN

Open lasagne topped with smoked paprika foam, Brandenburg-inspired pepper and kohlrabi risotto, and Oberhavel peaches served with honey ice cream and plum jelly. If dishes like these get your palate stimulated and your stomach rumbling, this year’s Berlin Food Week (20–26.09.2021) is not to be missed. After a Covid-enforced break last year, the food festival is back with a program of dining, events and markets that focus on the most pressing of topics: sustainability and regionality. A highlight is bound to be the Küchentausch series, where prominent chefs swap their kitchens for the day. On 21.09 Sebastian Junge – from Hamburg’s Wolfs Junge – will be heading to Kreuzberg to take over Lode & Stijn for five courses of experimental cuisine. The same night, Lode van Zuylen and Remi Stijn will be serving up their modern seasonal dishes at Wolfs Junge. If you want to follow the Berlin pair to the Hansestadt, you might also want to make a few other reservations: Hamburg has long been a favorite among gastro connoisseurs with its honest Nordic-inspired cuisine. In fact, the city’s restaurants have been awarded seven Green Stars in the Michelin Guide – a record in Germany for sustainable fine dining.

There is plenty to enjoy back in Berlin, not least the Stadtmenü which will see 50 of the city’s restaurants serving special climate-friendly menus. Among them is the locally-sourced brunch from Frühstück 3000 and a hearty vegetarian three-course meal at the revived Clärchens Ballhaus. Don’t miss the House of Food at Bikini Berlin where you can sample the likes of Nordic Oceanfruit’s seaweed-based treats. Much like the rest of the program, they’re sustainable, experimental – and tasty.

WILLIAM FAN ARCHIVE SALE CURATED BY ZORA AUGUSTE — HAND-SELECTED FASHION PIECES, CERAMICS & MORE

WILLIAM FAN ARCHIVE SALE CURATED BY ZORA AUGUSTE — HAND-SELECTED FASHION PIECES, CERAMICS & MORE

Hand-selected – that’s what describes Zora Auguste best. In the past few years we have gotten to know and love the “gallery” concept that the fashion and design project’s founders Nella Beljan and Marie Wez have developed. Now the pair have finally found a home at a wonderful room on Leipziger Strasse which features a high concrete ceiling that is well suited to their carefully curated selection of pieces. What can you expect? Ceramics (both as art and as design objects), table lamps, candles that look like light sculptures, and metallic book stands that wouldn’t look out of place on the desk of Walter Gropius. You’ll also find interior pieces courtesy of William Fan, who acquired them from his Hong Kong-born mother. But that’s not the main reason the Berlin designer is there.

The venue will also welcome garments from William’s current fashion collection plus archive pieces that Nella and Marie have selected to match the Zora Auguste vibe. Expect a color palette of off-whites, beiges, caramels and navy. There are beautiful blouses in fine fabrics with unexpected details, wide-cut trousers, ensembles and some real statement pieces including a long sequin dress. Sophisticated, refined and yet laid-back is the spirit that William’s clothes – and the whole collection – convey. There’s another reason to visit, though: the archive sale’s special pricing. A good time to start your own collection, we think.

PICNIC FM AT ZK/U — LIVE MUSIC AND DJ SETS BROADCAST TO YOUR PICNIC BLANKET

PICNIC FM AT ZK/U — LIVE MUSIC AND DJ SETS BROADCAST TO YOUR PICNIC BLANKET

Want to make the most of the last summer days this weekend? Then grab a blanket and head to the final Picnic FM event this Sunday (19.09.2021). Hosted outside the ZK/U cultural center in Moabit, this free open-air music event has a simple but unique concept: DJs and artists broadcast their tunes via a short-range transmitter, letting you enjoy a music program on a normal FM radio (brought or borrowed) as you lay and snack on your picnic blanket. This Sunday, the communal listening experience will be hosted by three artists. London/Berlin-based cellist Lucy Railton will perform ambient sounds inspired from the hum of everyday life before multidisciplinary artist Mokeyanju takes to the stage with her funky vinyl mixes. Finally DJ and producer Linnéa, whose work supports minorities in dance music, will be spinning some genre-blending futuristic sounds for everyone to groove to. Assemble your fave people, get some tasty snacks and settle down to the chilled sounds (and hopefully some sun!).

AFTER WORK MUSIC SESSIONS WITH A FUTURISTIC AGENDA — DRIVE LIVE NETWORKING LOUNGE

Music and movement go together in endless different ways, but if you want to experience just a few of them, Drive Live might be the event for you. This series of networking get-togethers unites musicians and DJs with the latest mobility tech in a lounge-like environment. The venue for these after-work sessions is the Drive venue in Mitte, which from 16.09.2021 will be the home to an interactive show from Audi that offers a sneak peak at the future of motoring. While the musicians take care of the soundtrack, you are invited to explore the techy exhibits and share your thoughts with your fellow forward-thinking guests. The kick off on 16.09. features beats from DJ Anja Schneider before tech-house producer Sascha Braemer takes over the decks for the second event on 28.10. If the networking part of the series sounds like thirsty work, make sure you pick up your complimentary welcome beverage. With your batteries charged, it’s off to meet a conversation partner so you can start creating your vision for all things future mobility…

FLOATING (UNIVERSITY) BERLIN — A WATER-BASED WORLD OF LEARNING AND EXCHANGE BY THE FORMER TEMPELHOF AIRPORT

FLOATING (UNIVERSITY) BERLIN — A WATER-BASED WORLD OF LEARNING AND EXCHANGE BY THE FORMER TEMPELHOF AIRPORT

They still exist: these independent, surprising and impressive “non-places” in Berlin. A prime example is the rainwater basin at the former Tempelhof airport. Off limits for 60 years, this unique ecosystem opened to the public in 2018 as a “Natureculture learning” site, also known as Floating “University” Berlin. Hidden amongst allotment gardens, this unique place is completely invisible from the street and is entered via a temporary bridge. What you find inside is an enchanted island comprising wooden huts and footbridges leading across the swampy terrain. You would think you were in the middle of the forest were it not for Tempelhof’s radar tower peeking up from behind the trees. The campus was created by architecture collective Raumlabor as a space for experiential learning and transdisciplinary exchange on subjects like art, culture and design.

What was started as a social project by the architects has gone on to be recognized with a Golden Lion at this year’s Venice Architecture Biennale. This week you can visit the place yourself as part of the Climate Care 2021 festival (until 12.09.2021), which features screenings, performances and discussions on topics such as black voices in the environmental movement (screening and discussion with Black Earth Collective and Rahab Njeri, 11.09 19–22h). You can view the full program online, though if you ask us the venue alone makes a visit worthwhile. Enjoyed at sunset, it is one of the most magical places in Berlin.
