John Bock's curated exhibition Fisch Graten Melk Stand at Temporare Kunsthalle Berlin

John Bock's curated exhibition Fisch Graten Melk Stand at the Temporare Kunsthalle Berlin is a show to die for! My camera skills can't capture the bizarre beauty of this show. And what's more, though there are over 60 artists of all genres including design, they all seem to weirdly fit into and reflect Bock's work. Love it!
After seeing his performance during the last Art Basel on the boat on the river in the rain for Art Parcours, where he said as we were leaving the boat (Was schone Damen), this was a good follow up.

Dinner with Nomad as the chef in Dieffenbach Str Kreuzberg (Stefan's place:)

I decided he was making art when he did everything himself, including the strudel for dessert!

Soho House Berlin hosts a talk with Norbert Bisky

The talk was about the art scene in Berlin, but since Deutsche is not even my second language, well let's just say I wasn't there for the talk ;)

Nomad in an upcoming group exhibition in Vienna: Escape

Sarah Musser's put Nomad in her exhibition Escape in Vienna. Here they are trying to tag and film the tagging before the rains came and washed it all away. Second attempt, in a protected environment, is there for all to enjoy in Wedding.

Thomas Kiessewetter's Studio in Kreuzberg

Jean Gidlee was so kind to show me around Thomas's studio one of the first days I was in Berlin. This neighborhood has some sublimely beautiful locations along the water. In Thomas's studio too, there were some sublime objects, both the sculptures being worked on and the artist and assistants working on them :)
Thomas's upcoming exhibition at CFA will definitely be something to talk about.

Nomad's DJ Night at King Size

With DJ Alex Voices from London, Nomad made it a night to remember playing funk music from the 70s and 80s, as well as some electro and  house. Of course the dancing only got better as the tiny space cleared out. If you can read German, here's an article. The owner of Grill Royal, also owner of King Size, is quoted in it...

Street Art in Berlin

In Kreuzberg and Mitte, of the type some of my street artists friends abhor :)
