Tim Dinter’s Berlin & Japanese Snacks (because you’re there)


Tim Dinter's Berlin is the city I fell in love with: gray, plain, full of moments. His Mitte is the one I miss, and I lose myself in this series some nights, pierced with longing for the little life I knew a decade ago.

Anyhow, how excited was I to see this beloved illustrator collaborating on an event with silkscreen artist Kathrin Bräuer? In the days when the piano salon was in Senefelderstraße I always took a detour by Kathrin's studio to examine the chevrons of aqua and grape inked across long scrolls of paper.

Having pressed my nose against her window so often, I would love to watch the three images from Dinter's limited-edition set of prints, "Kreuzberg", printed live in the atelier tomorrow afternoon. If you go, will you take photos?

PS: A sweet little piece on Tim Dinter here.

Meanwhile, I cursed when I saw I would miss the opening of Japanese antique shop/cafe Enishi. Its owner, Maki Kawatsura, has lived in Germany for ten years and says she wants to fuse Japanese taste with Berlin cafe culture. My favorite waiter at Sasaya told me he thought it would be good. I wish I could be there for tonight's opening, featuring Japanese treats and drinks. When I'm back!

Ooh, I love these prints and think that I too am in love with his view of Berlin. Part of me feels tempted to go to the opening but I'm somehow still worn out from Venice so I'll put of my visit till the near future. Thanks for the tip though and enjoy the rest of your trip.

Move west, honey. :)

Come back soon!

thanks for the link.
the drawing is superb !

Vanessa, your photos from Italy were so magical. I think the doorbells are my favorite.

Luisa, I know, I'm weary of my mournful tone myself :-) Will someone find me a state-run bilingual nursery in Charlottenburg? & back next week: pretzels!

Marion, I'm glad you liked it. David pointed out it captures Rosenthaler Platz before they squashed that goofy new hotel into the northeast wedge and I think that's one of the reasons I linger over it.

gosh, i'm so behind with reading all my favourite blogs, it's untrue... having a japanese café open on pappelallee sounds good!
