I met Elisabeth several years ago through a friend, when she had just decided to be a full-time artist and painter. When I met her again just some weeks ago I was more than happy to hear her decision turned out to be the right one and she’s having some major projects to come.
What better to do on a grey and rainy Saturday like today than getting one (or two or three) videos/DVDs/blu-rays from Berlin’s best sorted film shop: Filmgalerie 451 at Torstraße 231.
In terms of flea markets, Berlin proves to be a rather difficult city. Many of the most highly praised ones are either overcrowded and filled with handicraft nonsense like Mauerpark (although, the household clearance booth with its uncountable cardboard boxes full of stuff proves to be a source of joy if you arrive before it becomes broken and messy), or overpriced and overly posh like Unter den Linden.
