“7 Cajas”, the first feature film from screenplay writer Juan Carlos Maneglia and director Tana Schémbori, won the Finalist award at the 27th Goya Awards for Best Spanish Language Foreign Film representing Paraguay. Maneglia and Schémbori have been working together since the 1990’s; the duo’s goal is to find their own language and to install a national cinematography to identify them. The film was part of the 4th Annual Latin American film festival, also known as Lakino, which was held at the Babylon Kino in Mitte, constructed in 1929 by Hans Poelzig. The theatre was the perfect location for the film festival, although based on this year’s attendance they might need to move to a larger location to accommodate everyone.

Bianca Werner was born in 1987 in Halle (Saale) where she also first got introduced to analogue photography while getting her professional qualification as a graphic designer. Bianca moved to Berlin in 2008 and started using solely disposable cameras in the beginning of 2012 after reading an interview with photographer Tasya van Ree, who said: “A disposable camera—you have to respect composition and spontaneity first—then you can move on to the more expensive stuff.”

During their lives, German born artist Talissa Mehringer and Romanian artist Luiza Mogosanu have changed homelands various times, traveled extensively, and polished their artistic nerve in the U.S. and France respectively. Throughout life’s tribulations and many other dazzling adventures, both of them managed to hone an odd and unhinged skill: matching dark, biting sarcasm and humor from everyday words and situations. They met for the first time last spring at a group show in Berlin and went on to join forces for several events in the city.
We are happy to be giving away 1×2 tickets to Puresque|Bunker Visions with live painting presented by VAGE.
Puresque is a project that was founded in 2010 by the charismatic mixing wizzard Mocca and techno icon Paul Brtschitsch. Their first collaborative release “001a” made it directly onto an Ostgut Ton mix compilation. Soon after they started a residency at the legendary Tresor club, where they invited along well-selected guest acts such as James Ruskin, The Black Dog, Skudge, Terence Fixmer.
The duo then released their debut album Leitmotiv, which was charted and played by almost everyone in the techno elite, such as Adam Beyer, Ben Klock, Carl Cox, Carl Craig, Marcel Dettmann, and many more.
Now the duo has a new venture: The Bunker is a new residency in a special location, where Puresque & friends combine art exhibitions and techno music once a month.
This month features live painting by Alaniz, Dear Johnie & Talissa Mehringer.
The event starts at 11:00 p.m. on March 23rd.
Venue: Koepenicker Str. 18 – 20, 10997 Kreuzberg, Berlin, Germany

When you first encounter the Super Mega Fun Awesome Party Time exhibit by artist Cyrus Smith your eyes dance along the walls moving from one piece to another. It’s hard to know where to begin and that’s the beauty of the exhibit, you can just follow your eyes wherever they lead you and let your attention settle for a moment before flitting off to the next piece. It’s not to say that the works in the exhibit aren’t coherent, they work together very well and the more you time you spend with the exhibit the more you find. Rather than one linear thought, the exhibit works more like a seemingly random collection of thoughts that, at their core, are very much connected.
