Yesterday were so much things to do. Although it was only tuesday. Well, quite normal in Berlin, ofcourse.

Anyway, we swinged our butts out of the office, into the siberian evening.

First stop was transmediale, an annual art and digital culture festival, celebrating their 25th (!) year already! This year´s “transmediale 2k+12” is all about the main theme “in/compatible”. Opening ceremony at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt was yesterday. Amazing building buy the way, love the architecture!

You have time just until the 5th February to check out the whole programm!

Afterwards we went direction Ostbahnhof, for the monthly CDR Berlin meeting. For those of you who dont know it yet:

“CDR is a music platform for sharing & developing your ideas and works in progress. Wether you are starting out, already in the Beatport Top20 or just enjoy listening, CDR Berlin is about unreleased songs, remixes and edits which are played in a neutral space to a like-minded audience. In workshops you can learn from the ones who know – before YOUR tune gets played during the Open CDR session. Come along, bring your own track on CD/USB-Stick or upload it to our dropbox. CDR connects producers, labels, DJs and music lovers- simply for the love of the music.”

A concept we truely support. Unfortunately the old location Chez Jacki has closed its doors, due to some investors who bought the whole area and are planning to build another luxury hotel on the Spree riverside.

Anyway, new location will be from now on the Kantine at Berghain. So right on the other side of Ostbahnhof, next to the legendary club Berghain. This time we were too late for the workshops by Pole (Scape Music) and Morphosis (Delsin Records), but just on time to catch Pole playing one of his deep live sets.

… the one with a message.

The spanish anonymous art group Luzinterruptus made this summer this installation in Hamburg.  I just read about it now and saw some amazing pictures on their blog.

“Radioactive Control” is called the set-up. This is what they have to say about it themselves:

“The installation Radioactive Control was created for the Dockville Festival in Hamburg which tried to demonstrate, in a humorous tone, the paranoia that we are suffering from since the escape of radioactive material in Japan, has brought into question the safety systems at the nuclear power plants. With our mysterious army of 100 illuminated radioactive figures, which advanced threateningly on the natural environment of the festival, we wanted to invite reflection regarding the use and abuse of nuclear energy, cheap in economic terms, but which can cause grave secondary effects for the environment and health, forever irreversible.

Germany has been the first developed country to announce the total abandonment of nuclear energy by 2022, we know that this was not an altruistic decision and has a lot to do with the creation of new and innovative industries, which will make them pioneers in the market. But just in case they change their minds, we already know that what politicians legislate today, they change tomorrow with impunity, we wanted to simulate, for the festival, a life under the constant threat of nuclear accidents.

Thanks to the people of the Dockville organization for their help and support in putting together the installation and their hospitality during our stay and to all the volunteers who donated their time and abilities so that in the end our army stayed afoot, with a military air, for the month that the festival lasted.”
