Berlin – Snow and Art

Berlin Friedrichshain
Just a very brief  ‘Hello’ from Berlin. This is the view from the apartment I’m staying in. It snowed all night yesterday and there were people skiing on the six lane “Frankfurter-Allee“. Very romantic with a distinct Eastern European feel.

The snow is taking over the city. Snowplows everywhere. Strolling through Berlin feels like walking in sand on the beach. 
This is what I did yesterday:  After a Sudanese falafel, we went to a photography exhibit at the C/O Berlin much too weak to mention and had a great time in the “Tacheles” pictured below.

Berlin: Kunsthaus Tacheles

The “Tacheles” is a huge warehouse full of artists studios. The entire building is covered from top to bottom inside and out with Graffiti. It’s a piece of Berlin history, starting in 1907 as a shopping mall, later used by the Nazi party in the forties and for french prisoners. It became famous in the 90’s as a vibrant international art space, complete with wild performances and squatters.

Berlin: Kunsthaus Tacheles
From their website:
“Tacheles” is an old Jewish word meaning to disclose, to reveal or to speak clearly. The slang meaning of the word was bringing to an end.
The Art-Centre Tacheles is situated in a ruin in Berlin Mitte. Located in former East Berlin, the area was a Jewish quarter in the past and has now become a meeting point for people interested in arts and culture and for those who think they are. 

I love that “for those who think they are.” If you ARE interested, visit: http://www.tacheles.de

    Wow…Those are definitely powerful images. They really do bring history to life. I had to tear myself away from looking through all of them. Fascinating. I think I'll have to go back and look some more. Thanks for the links…
