I heart Berlin Party / House of Haunted Hearts

Thursday 31st October – 9pm

It’s that time of year again – All Hallows‘ Eve is back, bringing with it the pressure of finding a good costume and a good party. We have the second half of this tall order covered with the House of Haunted Hearts by our friends over at I Heart Berlin. The night will include a costume workshop, outfit competition, ghoulish haunted house performances and a haunted photo booth by the talented folk at Pornceptual. For those of you who want to start the night in a manner less ordinary, get to the venue early for an English language comedy special with The Fish Bowl.

Neukölln Art Festival / NachtundNebel

Saturday 2nd November – 6pm

If 48 hours Neukölln left you yearning for more Neukölln based art festivals then you’re in luck – this weekend Nachtundnebel will take place across over 80 venues in the district between 6 and 12pm. Spanning painting, sculpture, multimedia installations, readings, performances, theatre, dance /music showcases and more, there will also be an after party to follow at former movie theatre Villa Neukölln.

Opening at Import Projects / Invisible Measure

Saturday 2nd November – 7pm

In our ever evolving society transparency can be hard to find. In Beny Wagner’s upcoming exhibition at Import Projects the artist attempts to explore how our relationship with transparency has evolved over the last century, from the use of transparent materials in architecture through to politics, and the positive connotations ‚being transparent‘ usually conveys despite transparency merely referring to appearance.
