Galerie Buchholz for Gallery Weekend 2013
We thought Gallery Weekend would be a total disaster since the thunder started pünktlich at 18h, but Berliners must be snails, because after some little rain, everyone came out.
Just the night before we met Jonathan and Rebecca, founders of the MMX and Co-Verlag and they asked us if they would find us in the Augustus Straße, apparently that’s what one has to do, just walk it up and down, check out the exhibitions and the people. And yes, who said the Gallery Weekend is really about the art? It seems like it is as important to pick the right outfit, flower bouquet and meet the right people?
And indeed there seems to be the right people out there for these special days; we had our own portion of interesting encounters! We bumped into Wowereit at Galerie Thomas Schulte and Silke Neumann at Galerie Crone – not bad for being in the outskirts of Augustus Straße… maybe it’s not the place to be anymore?
Since we know that many of you didn’t have the time – or maybe not the motivation to get out there to see sellable art? – we covered the whole Gallery Weekend for you and we visited every single gallery in the list – oh yes, hard work! We have uploaded it all on a special tumblr so you can check what you missed or maybe find the motivation to visit some work that you will discover through our one instagram picture and one vine video of each exhibition. Check our Gallery Weekend Tumblr.

With the Creative New Media ”Meet and Eat” event, Artconnect Berlin brings people working in the same media together. Every three months we invite Berlin-based bloggers, photographers, magazine editors etc. to meet and eat together at Artconnect Berlin HQ. The guests are asked to talk about their daily issues. They can exchange experiences, such as copyright issues and other problems. Basically, it’s all part of Artconnect Berlin’s constant goal to connect the arts in Berlin and bring creative individuals together for mutual support.
Every time we try to invite along a musician from our Artconnect Berlin platform, to add to the special atmosphere of the event. The delicious dinner is prepared by selected chefs from Berlin.
The Event is hosted by Artconnect Berlin and some well known bloggers from Berlin too:
