We met Ralf Ziervogel, a Berlin based artist who will be presented in a solo show with Arndt gallery at Art Forum, and talked to him (in German) about his influences, resentments and his biggest, hitherto unrealised project – a cubus, measuring 120m x120m, on the field of Tempelhof airport.

I am more than willing to make a trip to my personal no-go-area, Friedrichshain, for Sebastian, one of the best dressed men in Berlin. He proves to be equally talented in styling himself and his apartment. His spacious place is furnished around two white, brass decorated cupboards he inherited from his grandparents. The huge flower object next to the sofa is actually a lamp and corresponds with the cupboards. I am pretty sure Sebastian is the only one who can make this rather weird item look contemporary. (We are very interested to find out if this might be a designer’s item – does anyone know?)
Neetu is living in Neukölln, not in the hipster part just off Maybach Ufer, but in the quiet Rixdorf, just some streets away from the Böhmisches Dorf. Her apartment is furnished only with items from local flea markets and loads of flowers. She shares it with her miniature pinscher Vince, who likes to sing along to the miniature harmonica Neetu wears as a necklace.
