Excellent! There was a great Berlin-art-scene-type article that I was reading the other day - in a back issue of Wallpaper mag. Should I find it for you?

dianamuse said...

oops. Whitewall mag. Spring 07. A nice little interview with Sabrina van der Ley. Quoting her response to a question about Berlin being the new New York, she says, "Yes! And it's much cheaper! Berlin is a boomtown for art!...It [the art scene] really started on an underground level. One of these [empty spots and empty building where artists could work] was turned into the Kunst-Werke Berlin (KW), which is now the partner of P.S.1. Then a lot of national and international galleries moved in."

You must look into this KW reference. It sounds great.

I'm headed to Berlin in mid October for the first time. Can't wait! I'm compiling a list of great tips and tid bits I've picked up from people (I'll be posting it on my blog eventually: www.pretavoyager.blogspot.com) which I'll be sure to pass along to you. In the meantime, NYT has a great collection of articles that has me super excited for the Berlin arts scene: http://travel.nytimes.com/travel/guides/europe/germany/berlin/overview.html

A beautiful place to go to is C/O Berlin Gallery
(co-berlin.com), another place to feel well and find nice things is the Stilwerk Berlin (Kantstraße 17 near by the station Zoologischer Garten). And Berlin has a lot flewmarkets on sundays, always a pleassure Bernauer Straße (Station). Best Sushi in town are made by kuchi.de. What else, Mitte is where everything happens (right in the *middle* of berlin). Take a few walks there (start Oranienburger Straße) and you'll find nice little shops in nice little streets with young designers, some arties and really good food. CU in Berlin;o)

Joanna Goddard said...

hey anon,

we rented an apartment in Potsdamer Platz, so we'll be exploring the city from there. we're really open to anything. we might take a day trip -- alex is excited about going to Dresden -- but we haven't officially planned one yet.

thank you!
