AUFBAU HAUS

This centre for creatives is a dazzling star in Berlin’s fabulous Kreuzberg micro-universe.

Scare and Share

Halloween is one of my preferred annual fêtes and, in fact, could even be described as a holiday in my belief system of conscious hedonism (never mind religious/national threads of ideology). Not only does it justify dressing up, deception and acting eerily, but it also challenges your perception and intimacy with people. Being a secret […]

BAR25 – Days out of Time

BAR25. No words can describe and no pictures could ever do justice to it – to what it was and what it stands for. Die Bar was revived!

Enter The Köpi

It’s not just a squat in the heart of Berlin’s crazy X-Berg; it’s a place where punks hang out with artists and everyone is welcome to get lost in this mazey house. Buildings belong to the people not to investors, developers or to the government, that is the message the people who stay in this […]

LARRY IN BERLIN

Larry is back! With an array of simultaneously moving and disturbing photographs that question our perception and expectation of adolescence, Larry Clark presents raw images of uninhibited sexuality and drug (ab)use, creating a sphere free of judgment for the protagonists. “Far removed from any form of voyeurism, he himself is a fundamental part of the scene […]
