Do not despair if you long for spending sunny days on the roof when there’s not an actual terrace on the top of your building.
Lithuanian design graduate Ainė Bunikytė came up with an idea that makes it possible to breakfast with a view, terrace or not.
Only thing she would have to clear (at least for people in Berlin) is how make the sun show up.
I used to paint and sketch a lot while still in high school and though it’s been less and less in the last 10 years I was happy to hear from Mira O’Brien who told me about her watercolour workshop at the Berlin Drawing Room.
The Summer Watercolor Workshop the Berlin Landscape (June 28 – July 15) is about the landscape of Berlin as a subject for practising the subtle medium of watercolour; layering color and value, dry and wet brushstrokes, sketching with watercolor, and experimentation with new materials.
It will be on Sundays, at changing outdoor locations and in addition, the class will meet in the Berlin Drawing Room studio to focus on technique.
No experience required!

I have this habit of making notes on my iPhone when out and about. It be phrases, events or names of people. Which can be quite interesting because often a couple of months pass until I read these notes again and then I have no clue in which situation I made the note.
This is the case of “Bernard Buffet”. I don’t know where or when I stumpled upon this name but when I googled it just now I discovered it was a French artist. And (again) I like his work! And he has an interesting history too. The Independent published this article about his relationship with Picasso.
Might be worth checking out Museum of Indian Art displaying art made by native Americans.
And totally out of context but google “Indian music” and this popped up.
Who, what? Silly wordplay? Me?
My friends over at Berlin Art Link are celebrating their one year anniversary.THE BAL BALL. Yeih!

If Christmas wasn’t so far away I would have wished for “Where they create” by photographer Paul Barbera.
Photos and descriptions of the spaces where creative minds create. Interviews included. Not only how their daily environment influences their output, but also what’s on their desk and even what’s in their fridge.
So here’s to a Januray present for myself.
These highly inspiring temples are located in Madhya Pradesh, India approximately 650 km from New Delhi. A UNESCO world heritage site and apparently of the most visited Indian tourist attractions. Wonder why?
Originally there were 85 temples but only 20 remain well preserved 1000 years after the “erection” which begun in the mid-9th century and went on for 250 years. I wonder if the workers had a hard time focusing?
Khajuraho: One-on-one, orgies, up-side down, animals – all fantasies and/or experiences are openly portraied. Wunderbar!
Philippina “Pina” Bausch. A German performer of modern dance, choreographer, dance teacher and ballet director. One of the leading influencers in the world of modern dance since the 1970s (until her death in 2009).
Helmut Newton’s “Crocodile Eating Ballerina”, from the Pina Bausch Ballet ‘Keushleitslegende’, Wuppertal, 1983.
Wim Wenders’ film Pina was presented at this year’s Berlinale. The first 3D dance film has been in the works for a couple of years, initially halted when Pina Bausch passed away during early stages of production.
The film features a number of her works, including “Café Muller,” “Sacre Du Printemps,” “Vollmond” and “Kontakthof.”
One of the most succesful sculptors of the mid-20th century. Georg Kolbe. (1877-1947).
After the death of his wife, Kolbe produced only male figures expressing grief and loneliness. Then turned to a more “victorious expression”. A muscular ideal celebrated by the Nazis as the archetype of the racially pure human being. Against Kolbe’s will.
To me, the museum garden looks like Medusa just paid a visit. Transforming everyone who met her gaze into stone (though Kolbe’s sculptures are primarily bronze). Fascinating.
Works by Ernst Barlach, Rudolf Belling, Hermann Blumenthal. August Gaul, Hermann Haller, Max Klinger, Emy Roeder, Renée Sintenis and more are exhibited as well.
“Die Tänzerin” (1912) by Kolbe. Part of the collection at the Old National Gallery in Berlin.
Exterior view of Mies van der Rohe’s, Barcelona Pavilion (1928–29) showing Georg Kolbe’s ‘Morning’ (1925).
