|Cultural Expeditions in August

Next to the already mentioned MS Artsville and Robi the Dog exhibition I managed to snag quite a few cultural offerings of various kinds in August. What a spread :-)
journal_ist and I managed to catch a fantastic performance of Porgy & Bess by the New York Harlem Theatre. The story is still sad but the music is also still magnificent.
I also visited two exhibitions that were quite different from one another but both more than worth my while. Unlike the Picasso exhibit earlier in the year the Manet one pulled out all the stops in collecting a fantastic array of works from all over the world. Yesterday's visit to the MK&G was mainly fueled by the HokusaixManga exhibition that offered a nice juxtaposition of Edo period prints and modern popular culture fare dealing with the same topics. Oh but the exhibit highlighting sneaker marketing posters from around the world was well worth a visit too.
Furthermore I ventured to the cinema and watched Genius. So well executed and acted, yeah.
Last but not least Berlin: 1 City, 1 day, 17km walked, 4 locations, 34 degree Celsius, 3½l liquids consumed, 196 photos taken mostly on the Teufelsberg. ( Check them out...Collapse )
