had a busy weekend in a good way. am helping out in one of berlin's most beautiful bookshops in the museum of contemporary art for a few weeks. and although that means working saturday and sunday, i had a really good time. what a dream to be in the middle of floor-to-ceiling bookshelves all day, right? apart from the selection of books on art, photography, architecture and design, which is quite awe-inspiring, there are also loads of great artists' postcards (this one here is by david shrigley) and other goodies that are either useful in a beautiful way or completely useless but a lot of fun anyway. i like this presentation of rubber bands. the book is a photo book on roadside diners in the U.S. and features a picture of an (untouched by the hands of a food-stylist) dish coupled with a portrait of people working there. nice one!
also went voting for the european parliament on sunday morning. the polling station was in an old school building in my neighbourhood. i think the old sign saying 'walhllokal' (polling station) they put up there must have been from the 1950s. and despite the awful rain that morning and the fact that i had to cycle to work in that weather, those signs made me smile. loved the faded colours on the walls and the crumbling plaster as well. i think it must have been a corridor they opened for polling day that's otherwise not in use at that school (everything else is quite newly refurbished).
hope your weekend was inspiring, too!
