DECOCULTURE: PLANT WORKSHOP & ECLECTIC INTERIOR IDEAS FROM INTERNATIONAL DESIGNERS

DECOCULTURE: PLANT WORKSHOP & ECLECTIC INTERIOR IDEAS FROM INTERNATIONAL DESIGNERS

Looking for a minimalist bookshelf for the perfect living room design statement? You can find just the right piece – and the plants to put on it – at Decoculture Berlin. The Wilmersdorf store for furniture and textiles is hosting an exclusive plant workshop in collaboration with Mayaa Plants on 26.02.2020 where you can try your hand at kokedama, the Japanese art of wrapping plant roots in moss. And while you’re there you can check out the design pieces selected by manager Agnese and her team from high-end brands as well as small studios and rare vintage suppliers. It’s a collection that’s bound to delight: iconic lamps from Italian pioneers Nemo, magnificent mirrors from Polish studio GieraDesign and boundary-pushing seating from Bergamo-based Pedrali. And if your entire interior concept needs work, the team will consult with you to create custom-made designs for the perfect bedroom, lounge or bathroom look. Your home will appreciate it.

TROPEZ VALENTINE’S NIGHT — ROMANCE DONE DARKER AT TRAUMA BAR UND KINO

TROPEZ VALENTINE’S NIGHT — ROMANCE DONE DARKER AT TRAUMA BAR UND KINO

Yes, Valentine’s Day can mean candlelit dinners and floral gifts, but also psychedelic beats and extraplanetary art – at least at Tropez Valentine’s Night (Fri 14.02.2020), the club night billed as “anything but romantic”. Hosting are Humboldthain art group Tropez, who for one night have swapped their poolside gallery for Moabit’s Trauma Bar und Kino, which since 2018 has been running diverse films, dance performances and art installations alongside club nights. Friday’s party has it all, with music from French harpist and producer Ange Halliwell and a set from “escort and DJ” Urami that goes from French rap to goa trance, with radio host and DJ Kikelomo closing up with grime, techno and more. The party is part of QT UR EA, a two-month series that transforms Trauma with performance, installations and virtual worlds from artists LUKAS8K and Mary-Audrey Ramirez. The dancing continues on Saturday 15.02 with audiovisual performances and DJ sets inspired by Borshch Magazine’s “Dark Side” issue. If you want to do Valentine’s a bit darker, Trauma is just the ticket. (Text: Benji Haughton / Photos: Ruben Branches, Adrian Escu for QT UR EA & Lukas8K)

FROM BARCELONA TO BERLIN — SUSTAINABLE FASHION POP-UP BY PALOMA WOOL

FROM BARCELONA TO BERLIN — SUSTAINABLE FASHION POP-UP BY PALOMA WOOL

As fast fashion continues to dominate the industry, Paloma Wool is one clothing label trying to break that cycle – with style. Barcelona-based Paloma founded her namesake brand in 2014 with the aim of merging art and clothing, and the result is a collection that takes a highly creative and experimental approach to fashion. The clothes are produced in Spain and often created in cooperation with international artists like Alejandra Smits and Romy Cole-Groth. The sustainable production methods used prioritize the creative process, resulting in garments which are a perfect demonstration of how clothing helps us express ourselves most freely. The distinctive pieces – for both men and women – are now available to browse closer to home. Paloma Wool is doing a world tour, and the next stop is Berlin, so head to Neukölln’s Studio Chérie to see and shop the collection for yourself. (Text: Sophie Döring / Photos: Paloma Wool)

DISAPPEARING BERLIN — TRANSIENT LOCATIONS HOSTING CONTEMPORARY ART AND PERFORMANCE

DISAPPEARING BERLIN — TRANSIENT LOCATIONS HOSTING CONTEMPORARY ART AND PERFORMANCE

What makes Berlin unique? There are many answers to this question, but the architecture of the capital, with its temporary structures and construction sites, comes up again and again. In this vein, the “Disappearing Berlin” event series from Schinkel Pavillon has since 2019 been uncovering spaces that are about to undergo radical change to highlight the urban architecture of transition with various performances, screenings and concerts. This evening, the festival heads to Kotti’s Xara Beach bar with “Leylet Hob (A Night of Love)”: inspired by the cabaret of the Middle East, curator Martha Kirszenbaum will present films by Arab female artists and host a performance by Lafawndah. Next Thursday (30.01.) the action moves to soon-to-be-closed Mitte dance institution Clärchens Ballhaus where Lebanese artist Mohamed Bourouissa will tell a story of two cities – Berlin and Beirut – in dialogue with Youmna Saba, Sina Araghi and Tony Elieh. Schinkel Pavillon manages to capture the fleeting nature of urban spaces in a format that is itself marked by change. Numbers are limited for the events so make sure you arrive early!

HOW TO AVERT ECOLOGICAL DISASTER — TALKING SOLUTIONS WITH BURNING FUTURES AT HAU1

HOW TO AVERT ECOLOGICAL DISASTER — TALKING SOLUTIONS WITH BURNING FUTURES AT HAU1

The climate crisis. Ecological collapse. Resource scarcity. It’s impossible now to look away and ignore the grave environmental threats we face. But at the heart of all this is a truth we’d rather brush under the carpet: it’s our constant drive for more and more economic growth that has brought us to this critical point. This fixation on growth and the toll it takes on the planet is the subject of what’s set to be an interesting and valuable discussion at HAU 1 on 21.01.2020: “Fossil Economies, Degrowth Ecologies“. As part of Hebbel am Ufer’s Burning Futures series of talks on ecology, this edition brings together Andreas Malm (author), Tadzio Müller (political scientist) and Andrea Vetter (researcher and journalist), three interdisciplinary climate thinkers on a mission to find out why our economy became so dependent on fossil fuels and how we can move towards a green-growth – or even growth-less – future. The talk offers a new way of looking at the climate crisis, and will leave you in no doubt about the drastic structural changes needed to avert disaster. Well worth your while we say.
