Three Things To Do This Week

A few things to keep in mind this week:

“We Are Not Gemused” is an English-speaking comedy night in Neukölln. Have a gin and tonic and a laugh at Berlin’s Sameheads. Entry is 5 Euro, or four for students. The event will take place on Tuesday, February 23rd at 8:30 PM, Richardstraße 10.

Black Hole premieres at Sophiensaele. The piece is a musical installation-performance that uses the requiem form to engage with rituals of mourning and their interaction of conscious and subconscious elements. The Solisten ensemble, Kaleidoskop, and artist and hypnotist, Martin Eder, use acoustic and visual effects to create a world between worlds. The performance will take place February 25th through the 28th at Sophiensaele, Sophienstraße 18.

Open now at the Berlinische Galerie is the exhibition, Art in Berlin 1880 - 1980. The exhibition was curated to mark the museum’s 40th anniversary and is a multi-faceted tour through the art of Berlin from 1880 to 1980. It will range from paintings of the late 19th century, when the Kaiser reigned and tastes were largely determined by the moneyed classes, to post-war modern architecture and the “wild” works of the Seventies. The exhibition is currently open at Berlinische Galerie, Alte Jakobstraße 124–128.
