Charkiw: caught between yesterday and today

Christina/ July 3, 2022/ Ideas of philosophy

We stand at the Waisenhausdamm. Street number 8-11 is our goal. The former florist shop is currently home of an foto exhibition. It is about Charkiw, a city in the east of Ukraine. A city, which name and geography was only known to a handful of people. In the past weeks however, the second biggest city of the Ukraine become

Modern tales: Between villains, dominance and pain

Christina/ May 15, 2022/ The daily grind, Culture

The BBK Kunsthaus currently shows the exhibition “Modern Fairy tales”, i.e. classic pieces of art newly interpreted by Friedhelm Kranz. The show is not fantasy but magical. The way Kranz displays his acts is extraordinary. Works and art forms of other artists are copied and manipulated. And maybe they are also, that’s my thought, newly interpreted. For that the works

Corona-Diary: mulled wine hiking at Riddagshausen

Christina/ December 14, 2021/ The daily grind

I admit it: I can’t hardly cope with the grey and dark season. Almost every day it is dark, rainy and simply unfomfortable outside. Beside that due to the Corona-restrictions such as 2G, 3G or 5G – no, that’s UMTS – there is no festive cheer yet. That’s why I have to nestle. And last saturday the weather is being

Christina/ September 8, 2021/ The daily grind

Upon my forays around Braunschweig I time and again noticed the recultivation projects at the river Schunter.

The green cylce tour starts at the Ringgleis and

Things of the heart at the Lokpark

Christina/ August 29, 2021/ Culture

Acutally the saying goes: “Summertime and the living is easy”. This summer however not only the Corona restrictions are giving me a hard time. Also the changeable wheather spoils my plans for the weekend. Once again the prospects for saturday are dull. At first there is less rainfall than predicted. That’s why we dare to visit the designer market “Herzensdinge”

Yakamoz: The reflectance of the moon in the water

Christina/ August 16, 2021/ Culture

Since mid of July 2021 the art gallery Geyso20 shows the exhibition Yakamoz in Braunschweig. There is also an additional programme. I visit the public guided tour on 15.8.2021 in order to learn more about the two artists, Murak Akat and Lena Schmidt-Tupou. From a rational point of view I am far away from being an adept. Therefore I enter

Udo Lindenberg at Braunschweig

Christina/ June 22, 2021/ Culture

To put it in a nutshell: The Udo Lindenberg exhibition in Braunschweig is fun! Udo’s pictures celebrate life, do not take it too seriously and bolster the spectator up to follow the lead. I can just say thank you to both, Udo Lindenberg for turning 75 recently and the Prüsse-Stiftung for dedicating this exhibition to Braunschweig on the occasion of
