Even if I am not living in the beloved capital anymore, I am still trying to follow the founding or developing of new places, events, etc.
The other day a dear friend of mine told me about the Stattbad Wedding, which is used for something different as an indoor swimming pool after its closing. It is a space for art and culture; especially urban culture and contemporary art are functioning next to each other and together.
This year for the first time there will be STATTMARKT 2012. Their description says:
"It is an Art only edition, featuring
designated artist project spaces combined with a commercial element.
Each space will be individually curated presenting a twist to the
traditional art market format & resulting in the most diverse array
of artists to be showcased in STATTBAD Wedding to date."

Today was one of those last and rare warm days, wich give you a last feeling of summer before hitting you in the face with winter days. I thought I'd use it to ride my bike and take some pictures along the "Rheinischer Esel" (Rhenish donkey).
"Rheinischer Esel" is the name of an old industrial railway track in the area of the Ruhrpott (Ruhr valley). After the closing of most of this area's industrial facilities (such as steelworks, coal mines, etc.) it was and is still being turned into a bycicle and pedestrian trail.
This staircase is the way to the cellar, where we can keep our bycicles. It's somewhat annoying and dirty, but I thought'd make an interesting background for outfit pictures.
After popping in the furniture second hand store when passing, I came out with two wooden vegetable boxes for free. It looks like they are falling apart soon, but till then they are useful as a bookshelf.
I just came across those pictures I took while walking through the woods with my boyfriend in the last summer. Sometimes I miss summer, but somehow I embrace autumn, because I like the idea of staying inside, burn some candles and drink a lot of tea. Now that I got to know a bunch of new people I feel excited to visit them in their flats and drink some tea with them. I just love to the the inside of buildings. It is very inspiring for me!
