A strange and unworldly calm wafts around Berlin’s abandoned old military cemetery. Thick grass rolls over a disparate selection of broken tombstones, funerary Achilles helmets in old bronze, stone wreaths and armour, the craggy peaks of neo-gothic sculpture poking out of a taciturn, awe-inspiring landscape.
In this space “after the afterlife”, where even stone memorials to individuals from the 1800s fade and sink — Natali Legance revealed 13 black-and-white photos in the gentle light of the evening city sun.
Muted piano music and candles, an atmosphere of quiet and simplicity, it was the artist’s debut photo show. Out of nowhere, she solicited the ghosts of life’s many yesterdays, the uncertainty of appearance, and the profundity of change, through a small but powerful collection of photographs.
Tonight is the Finissage of the impressive Cooking In The Ruins exhibition by UK artists Alice Morey and Louise Thomas. In south Neukoelln, the party goes from 6pm until 9pm, so perfectly timed before going on to conquer the night.
Both artists have unique and original techniques. The bright colours and abstract figures used by Morey are reminiscent of Matisse and Picasso. Bright, bold and beautiful are words that come to mind to describe the intricately detailed works displayed, contrasting the cold, abandoned feeling evoked by the amazing abandoned space
Pass me the king of medicine?
Yes, hello, I’d like to vanquish illness. Fight me the invincible, age and death.
My sexual organs have been mapped out like machine parts, they can generate predictable feelings if you push certain buttons on the body and work even better if you switch on certain programs on the screen.

Berlin Web Week, running 5th-10th May, is now Europe’s biggest conference on all things web. Within its confines re:publica, Europe’s largest conference on weblogs, social media, and digital society, gets into how it looks, how it should look and how it might look.
Mistaken for Strangers is supposedly a documentary about that plucky underground band The National who are now huge. Lead singer Matt Berninger’s little brother Tom, slacker extraordinaire, gets invited along as roadie and decides to shoot a documentary while he’s there. The film is of course not in the end about the band at all, they and the tour end up forming the backdrop of the film which ends up being really about Tom, the slacker brother, and his relationship to Matt, his older rock star brother. Hailed as the funniest film about the music business since Spinal Tap, Mistaken for Strangers is in the end a celebratory, feelgood film about brothers, about making a documentary and vaguely about a modern day rock band on tour.
Definitely one to check out.
To be honest, I’ve never reviewed a comedy night before. In fact I’m not even sure if I’ve ever been to a comedy night before. I suppose that sounds strange, since I enjoy, well, laughing.
I think this may be down to my inner Englishness, my fear of the embarrassment I would feel if someone were to stand up and not be funny. What would I do? Where would I look? Would I laugh politely, would I cough quietly, would I stare pointedly at the wall until a big stick came out and pulled him off? Would I eventually sidle off, looking at my watch and shrugging at people that weren’t there?
And then also, you know, comedy’s such a personal thing in the end. At least what you find funny is. What if I would be standing there with the people who invited me, who I like, you know, and they would start laughing hugely at things that I wouldn’t find funny at all? What if it made me think less of them? And would I have the balls to simply not laugh if I was in that situation and I didn’t think it was funny? Or would I pretend to laugh, feeling sick inside, wondering when I could slip away, and then just not get in touch with those people anymore?
we give you a selection of the best of what’s happening in Berlin in the next week, so check it out, try it out and have a good time!
