Early Spring in Berlin

Berlin lakes invite for early spring outings nearby around, while the city is packed with tourists who like to stay outside in the parks 🙂 … fashion week 2018 lies behind those who try to beautify the German capital in its ever-ending stage of waiting for BER, international airport-to-be: 2018 is IT, or not yet …? 2022 ?

Winter in Berlin, Germany, December 30, 2017

The Berlin LICHTBĂśHNE seems rather silent these days, yet not fully passive. Let us see what the year 2018 will bring in terms of lights, shows, music and, most importantly, people! We continue to welcome refugees emerging from difficult living circumstances, in particular women with their children, sometimes with or without husbands, often carrying the families’ burden to sustain in life. Let us just welcome them in full generosity, having fled unbearable situations. We all remember our grand grandparents and their war- and postwar stories. Living in Berlin today means to be part of several generations without any war, let alone without hunger. Thank You world!

Doha’s False Venice

Doha_False_Venice Lebanese anthropologist Rawane Nasif has created a beautiful scenery with her 12′ film (2016, 12 min. Arabic) at the Berlinale 2017. The film, entitled Sokun Al Sulhufat “Turtles are Always Home” reflects the “false Venice” of real estate reality, shown at the Berlinale (my personal highlight)!
