only now finding the time to upload some of the pictures i took at berlin gallery weekend with the old camera. from 1-3 may, many important art galleries hosted openings and events. on sunday, 3 may, seven berlin galleries joined up with an international gallery each and held the event 7x2 in an old building on karl-marx-allee, not far from alexanderplatz. the buildings on that major thoroughfare were built in the 1950s as 'palaces for the people', modelled on the grand stalinist-era avenues in moscow. in a way, the buildings may seem daunting, but the apartments are now really sought after. they are quite spacious and light, with parquet flooring, some of them even have a view of the television tower on alexanderplatz. the pictures show moments from the 7x2 event, some of them giving you a glimpse of one of those apartments, where 'texte zur kunst', a contemporary art magazine, have their offices. lots of people were there, many of them with kids. the light that day was amazing. i'm glad i went.
(the picture of the kids playing with confetti was taken at the haubrok collection - the confetti was in fact an artwork and the children were allowed to play with it. more info here.)
am a bit tired, so maybe this doesn't sound too inspired, but i wanted to share these pictures with you anyway. hope you'll bear with me... :)
