Moby in Stattbad Wedding


Stattbad Wedding was a former public swimming pool complex, and now its become a contemporary cultural centre, where exhibitions, performances and parties (among others) take place. I attended some exhibitions during last years Fashion Week and without any doubts its one of the coolest locations in Berlin.

This time, we heard rumours that Moby (Official) was coming to town. But the little publicity and adds on local media made me feel that we had just receied a fake email. But it wasn't!!

 ..and Moby just performed at 2am as it was expected. There were different areas with Djs and two enormous 'dancefloors'at the basement. Also graffity, performances and some exhibitions during the night.

Paloma, Kottbusser Tor, Xberg

Everyone has heard something about Monarch, but not about Paloma.

Due to its secret location its hard to find this little spot located directly in Kottbusser Tor. You´ll access the place through some stairs in Skalitzer Str. next to the turkish restaurant.

If its still early, you´ll have the chance to enjoy a drink next to the window looking to Kotti, and later on, to dance to the electro beats until dawn.

Farbfernseher + Sameheads

After the great active day, I decided to go out and ended up dancing nonstop. We met at 23.00 in Kotti and went to have a drink to Farbfernseher, next to Kottbusser Tor. Alexandros, which is new in the city came with us for his first night out.

Then, it was time for Sameheads. Great discovery. Little club at a basement of a creative boutique...

SAMEHEADS- Emerging talent scout boutique of creative stylings for Berlin's hipster avant guardians. Three British expat brothers opened shop to give fledgling artisans retail hospitality. Bright-eyed newcomers to Berlin's fashion, art and music orgy revel in emblematic "poor but sexy" glam-grunge emporium. In classical Berlin disdain for categorization, sibling purveyors moonlight as off-sight event planners in alternative locales, with loyal ranks among city's 24 hour party people.- SAMEHEADS
Richardstrasse 10- / U Karl-Marx-Str.

After listening to live music and dancing like crazy, it was time to go home. Although some people still wanted to go to Berghain! :p And this is the end of the story. Happy night. Happy faces.

Casiotone for the Painfully Alone @ Maria Antoinette

On Tuesday night Casiotone for the Painfully Alone were playing @ Maria Antoinette next to the metro Jannowitzbrücke. It was the last show in Berlin, so it was the last chance to saw them life (well him).

The venue, located in a kind of garage under the S-Bahn, had simple but modern décor. Actually just a painting of Marie Antoinette showed us where we were. The place was almost empty by the time we arrived there, so we sat in a white sofa and waited until the show begun. The place was packed by 10pm.

Festival, festival, festival! :)
This weekend we went to the Down by the River Festival, which was taking place in Bar 25. The place is amazing, it's located at the riverside, it has several bars, a restaurant,  and even a circus! so, you can watch a movie, listen to a great live concert, have a nice dinner, see a piece of theater, circus, or just enjoy a drink!

Musashi, Sushi in Kreuzberg

As a total Sushi amateur I could dare to say that Musashi is one of the best sushi places in town. Little imbiss in Kotbusser Damm, really little and usually packed. It may not seem the best option from outside to enjoy a nice meal. Once you're in, you'll think in a complete different way.  That's the real Japan.
Musashi only plays music from a cassette player, but its sushi chefs hail from the native country and clearly have full command over their cuisine. Have a look at the decoration:  pictures for beginners with the different types of sushi an sumo posters everywhere. I can´t really say it´s cheap (Its not overpriced either)  but the quality is simply, unbeatable.

Berlinische Galerie

Saturday morning, time to get active. After making a little excursion to Pankow with Ignacio to give away flyers of the veggie dinner, I'm meeting Steven in the Admiralbrücke. The plan is to go to the Berlinische Galerie and then take some shoots with our cameras somewhere around the city. It's nice getting in touch again and doing stuff together.

The current exhibition at the Berlinische Galerie  is Nan Goldin, american photographer born in a jewish family in D.C and grown up in Boston. Some of her topics, gay and transexual scene, hard-drug subculture, sex and nudity have also provocked criticism among the public.One of her most famous work is The Ballad of Sexual Dependency, which depict drug use, violent, aggressive couples and autobiographical moments.

She currently lives between Berlin, Paris and Yale, where she works as a teacher.

Some critics have accused her of making heroin-use appear glamorous, and of pioneering a grunge style that later became popularized by youth fashion magazines.

Peter Lindbergh, C/O Berlin

P E T E R     L I N D B E R G H

„What's so striking about black and white photography is how it really helps a sense of reality to come through.“ – Peter Lindbergh

And here it is. Peter Lindbergh.

Here some pictures taken with the mobile phone, not good but not too bad either.

Fred Herzog, C/O berlin

F R E D    H E R Z O G
Great surprise must admit. Never had heard the name of this photographer before. FRED HERZOG. Born in Stuttgart, he then moved shorty to Toronto, and then to Vancouver where he developed his career during 1950s and 60s.

He mostly used colour revesal film (Kodachome) to capture his works. This limited himself due to the existing popularity in Black and White technique at that time. He decided to capture the streets, gas stations and shops from Vancouver so that afterwards people could see what the city was like in the 60s. But what he loved was capturing people, mostly working class, in its environment and daily life. And in the streets of Vancouver.

His works are full of colour, power and authenticity.

Have a look at his portfolio at the Equinox Gallery in Vancouver:
