After lunch, it was dark already. Only 4pm and sky was turning black. So I experimented a bit with my new camera.
Our friends stumbled across an art exhibition which had it’s opening night this very night, just across the road from us. So we scooted on over. How very Berlin of us.
It was the Christoph Schlingensief exhibition held at the KW Institute for Contemporary Art.
We entered into a pretty little courtyard faintly lit with fairy lights…
After entering, I am a little embarrassed to say, I had no idea what I was looking at. I am afraid to say i’m not very art savvy .
Maybe it was the language barrier but I just didn’t get it.
However, Art News writes his work up much better than I could.
From what I could gather, it is a collection of films, theatre pieces and exhibitions that touch on media representations of current events, politics, German history, fascism, Christianity and the institution of family.
I wouldn’t recommend taking your kids though, there are some very disturbing videos.
More my style, we headed to the cocktail bar across the road, Pauly Saal. Here I found the best cocktails I have found since leaving Australia. If you go, ask for Bobbi and her Kiss Me Pisco.
Feeling a bit peckish… when am I not? We headed off for late night Vietnamese at Monsieur Vuong. Is there anything better?
I fibbed a little didn’t I? This was mostly about food in the end.
