Sounds & Apples & Potatoes


First, my beloved Max and his husband Michael have put together Sound Shuttle, an installation that "inserts itself at the intersection of sound art and urban studies". Of course I'm biased, but aren't the snippets on their MySpace page great? Sound Shuttle opens at 8pm tonight at 91 mq. (Photos above and below were taken years ago at the Onkel Toms Hütte station in southwest Berlin, easily my favorite U-Bahn stop. Have you been? It's a subway station inside an 1930s shopping center. It's so bleak. Just the signage is worth the trip.)

Second, the artist community LandKunstLeben is holding their annual apple festival this Sunday at the Steinhöfel Garden.  They promise a garden buffet and the chance to pick and cook your own flowers and produce. Those who can't make it this weekend might like to check out the Kochende Gärten cooking courses held in the garden throughout the year.

And finally, the series of Domäne Dahlem markets is kicking into high gear. Last week featured specialities from Brandenburg; this week is the potato festival. Children (and adults) can dig their own potatoes and roast them over an open fire. Coming up are the harvest festival on October 9th & 10th (find a few pictures here) and the textile fair plus Saint Martin's Day parade on November 6th & 7th.

The more I here about what is going on in your neck of the woods, the more we both really consider Berlin as our future home. Do enjoy everything! You will, I know!!
