Just a few steps to U8 Boddinstraße, the mix of culture and the selection of cafes, bars, and restaurants is unbeatable.

This week we highly recommend taking the chance to visit Stephane Leonard‘s show “Neid fressen Seele auf”. On display at okazi gallery are large scale canvases and smaller works on paper.

The title is a free translation of the saying „The grass is always greener on the other side“. Leonard refers to the inner conflict that you can never be where you actually want to or should be at a certain point.
