Are you looking for a Berlin bag that not only looks good but is also full of surprises? Then EVENaBAG –– created by our outdoor fan and friend Rocco Kruse –– is definitely the right choice for you. Rocco who works as an architect, artist and designer in Berlin, has not only to travel a lot for his job, but also loves to sit down at the river Spree or in a parc after work. He came to the idea when he was preparing himself for a week long tour through from New York to Los Angeles and started watching people and studyig the market for multifunctional bags. What he found was not satisfying and also he saw that he was not alone with his problem: So many people take a break in a parc or at a riverside – not only in Berlin but also in LA or NYC – the can't sit on their bags because of the the laptops inside, cant't relax their backs and get dirty or wet, if they sit down in their suits or skirts. So Rocco identyfied not only a market gap but started closing it right after his US trip. He brought home first drawings, prototyped samples with his collegues and tested plus perfetioned his multi talent in the following summer. Finally he started a small production with durable materials in a fair family production he met travelling two years later to Vietnam. We were able to test EVENaBAG the last Weeked ourselfes and were as excited as surprised by his clever design which is truly a chameleon, available in four colours. We fell for the blue brown one, which we used as bicycle bag, a padded camping seat with backrest, a fishing chair and a decent picnic mat – it is also designed as a hanging toileretry bag and serves very well as a cool diaper bag too, says Roccos sister. If you want to become part of the cool urban Berlin crowd or a looking for a cool prent to bring to your loved ones, get yourself EVENaBAG. We are convinced it is not only a great Berlin product for any mobile lifestyle but also an extremely useful surprise for trendsetters all over the world.

Every Splash is a Death

The Artist Jan Scheirs with the Editor in Chief Fanny Zschau (c) Bernd Althans

During a long gone afternoon, the Belgian artist Jan Scheirs watches another series of the famous nature-documentaries by Sir David Attenborough. Subject is observing the mini cosmos around an ordinary pond somewhere in the beautiful landscapes of England. It is a hot summer day; nothing seems to happen. Just a few dragonflies circle gracefully above the silent surface of the water. Suddenly a splash – a fish jumped out of the water and caught the insect. Attenborough comments with his typical voice: Every splash is a death. Every innocent sound within this calmness could be a deadly end for some living being. Jan Scheirs was deeply inspired by the power of this phrase. Now, many years later, his cabinet exhibition in the gallery Garten 114  – run by our friends Florian Filtzinger and Mayk Blattgerste –– is based on this quote. Jan invites his viewers to join him and his invetigations – his critical, sometimes fatalistic view – upon the evolution of global society. Does anyone still see the Big Fish underneath the surface – watching and observing us – ready to attack when time is right? For the artist it is a very personal exhibition – he started the shown works after a Thailand trip where he could not dive without seeing plastic backs and waste in the water – destroying our beautiful nature and killing not only the big fish. With these works Jan Scheirs wants to awaken our modern societey and will be glad to discuss his works with you during the artist Matinee Sunday from 12–2pm or on Monday night for the finissage. Enjoy your Gallery Weekend and just drop by for a drink to meet us at this small but great exhibition.

Meet us at the finissage 29th of April 7–10pm, Gartenstr. 114, D-10115 Berlin-Mitte

Fisherman's Restaurant

With its large sun terrace the Fisherman's Restaurant has a fantastic view on Lake Tegel. Berlin's only pier for river cruise ships is very close by and it is only a five-minute walk to Alt-Tegel, the historic center in the north of Berlin. In this idyllic environment Sören Engelmann and his team receive their guests. Engelmann, who grew up with fresh fish Greifswald,  offers here since 2006 a refreshingly modern, youthful fish cuisine. One that unmistakably combines German traditions with the influences of the Mediterranean region. This creates completely new, often surprising and sometimes extremely sophisticated compositions. For example, a tuna carpaccio with roasted potatoe salad and baked plums an almost pink grilled tuna steak with Barolo honey jus or giant lemon prawns roasted in lemon oil with raw sugar and tequila flambé.

Fisherman's Restaurant, Eisenhammerweg 20, D-13507 Berlin
Opened daily from 12am–10pm in summertime and till 9pm in winter.
