enough with the foodie talk, right? let's get down to business, art! Kunsthalle Deutche Bank recently reopened after restructuring themselves from Deutche Guggenheim. in their own words, this is a place of discovery, an institution that is as alive and in flux as the German capital itself. their current exhibition with the title The Circle Walked Casually, shows among 49 other artists' work on paper, my favorite, Louise Bourgeoise. here she is represented by the work 10 am Is When You Come to Me, which is among the last pieces she made before she died almost four years ago. we also got to meet Lucian Freud and Joseph Boyes in beautiful drawings. both ones with focus on the body, but with very different approaches. the show as a whole is recommendable. and i regret not buying the catalog. if you're into fashion photography, the Museum für Fotografie is all about Helmut Newton these days. and at the Hamburger Bahnhof, Andrea Fraser's video Official Welcome is worth the visit. working with performance, she is one of the artists who has inspired me the most through my years of art history classes. i think she's brilliant and didn't really wanna leave her black box, even when the guards started looking at their watches and turning the light of.
