Summer 2013 Mixtape: Cadillacs in our Dreams

Forget about Robin Thicke, Justin Timberlake, Pharrell. Heck, forget Daft Punk. This summer should belong to the likes of Ciara, of Lorde, Kate Boy, and CHVRCHES. Yes, Miley too. Open those double windows, blast this off your balcony, take it to a lake, a park, Kotti. Have a great Berlin summer, y’all, we’ll be rooting for you.

Guide: Summer 2013

I’m writing this while the sun is shining bright and merciless, frying your brain when you walk on the sunny side of the street, softening your heart when you lie in the park. Summer is without question the seasonal reason for hundreds, thousands to move to Berlin every year. Although, Berlin’s summer is always coming too late, staying too short, leaving too early. It’s desperately yearned for, thoroughly enjoyed and crushingly missed.
Anyway, right now it’s full on and to be revelled every day, every hour, every minute and here are some tips on how to do it right:

Art in Berlin: White Bouncy Castle

Well yes, this is a giant white bouncy castle. For adults. And it’s even more fun than you already expect it to be. The artist and choreographer William Forsythe placed it in the Naturpark Schöneberger Südgelände for the festival Foreign Affairs.
You should go and bounce asap, the euphoria is unmatched, as is the exhaustion that will quickly set in. Was it that hard back when we were kids? We don’t remember and we don’t care as long as we can bounce, bounce, bounce.
The White Bouncy Castle is bounceable for 20mins until July 14th, admission 4 Euros.
Tue–Wed & Fri 14:00–19:30
Thu 16:00–22:00
Sat–Sun 12:00–18:00

 

Discover This: Layla Fourie

Layla Fourie is determined to find a job. „I need to make a living,“ she says and her honesty in the interview pays off. The casino manager employs her, but she still can’t buy her young son that bike he is riding around with in a supermarket. Layla Fourie is an honest and modest woman. Judging from her appearance, you might call her reserved or cool, but this façade only means that Layla is neither helpless, dependent on a man, nor emotionally unstable. Layla Fourie is the first of a series of this year’s exciting female film portraits that have powerful performances by little-known but outstanding actresses, such as Rayna Campbell.
