This Wednesday at the WMSG Gallery a new exhibition curated by Sebastian Grünberg will open. The name and theme is ‘OHNMACHT’. What that means exactly, I’m still investigating. After seeking council with every German person I know I discovered the translation is not so easily converted into English. So far I have been told it means “Black Out” which I would relate to a power falure, “Pass Out” which I guess would be fainting, and “Powerlessness” which I don’t even think is a word. Thanks to Google Translate for that last one. One friend in particular had an amusing way of describing it to me; “It’s like if I see a hot girl yeah, and she is so nice I fall.” Ok so now I’m really confused, but read on for a hopeful conclusion.

On Friday the 7th of May We Make Stuff Good are once again taking the show on the road. This time to the infamous Glashaus at Arena Club. Superfreaks is the name of the party and the organisers kindly invited us to decorate the room. Therefore we needed an aritst that really played with the club’s atmosphere. Tifani Rubi was selected for her use of vibrant colours and energetic patterns. This girls’ ARTY makes me want to PARTY.

This Saturday night at Stattbad come along to the WMSG Gallery to celebrate the closing party for A touch of Evil. But of course we couldn’t end it on such a simple note. So for the perfect “finassage” recipe add one empty swimming pool, a bunch of vj artists, 4 live music acts and a dash of water. Actually take out the water…. and put in a stage.

A TOUCH OF EVIL: Representing artists that represent themselves.
The upcoming show “A touch of Evil” was inspired by sisters, Beata and Anna Niedhart.
Originally from Poland, the siblings have been working independently of each other within the arts and graphic design fields here in Berlin. Beata is the Director of a young fresh graphic design team called Fuk Laboratories, and Anna is known for her hard work as Creative Director at PLATOON. Needless to say, these girls have got talent.

This Saturday the 27th of March WMSG are taking the show on the road, even if it is just around the corner . Tape Club has given us the opportunity to showcase one of our most beloved artists, Dean Rosenzweig. Dean (aka, SWag) has made a name for himself as lead guitarist in the band IAMX. But if you thought that was impressive, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

As part of the Berlin Film Festival Berlinale, a private showing of Exit Through The Gift Shop was screened last night at Potsdamer Platz. As you may have heard, the film is presented by the infamous and un-recognisable Banksy. I was lucky enough to be invited along to the Berlin premiere and besides falling over on the red carpet, I had an otherwise safe experience.
