Steeped in history, rich in culture, and awake all night long: breathtaking Berlin is the city that keeps getting better. Since its infamous Wall fell, Berlin’s creativity has flourished, with art galleries, bars, theatres, and iconic architecture springing up all over the formerly Soviet-era cityscape.
Dance music and Berlin nightlife are essentially synonymous in 2013. Home to some of the most important labels, producers and spaces in dance and electronic, Berlin is a clubber’s mecca. The “Berlin sound“, essentially minimal techno/”micro-house” music championed and produced by, amongst others, techno legend Richie Hawtin, began to trickle into mainstream night clubs in the US around around 2003, as progressive house and techno fused into something dark, repetitive and hypnotic.
We had our sights on French artist Clement Briend when he projected a hell lot of faces on trees for his Cambodian Trees project. Well, we are just as intrigued by his Berlin series.

When I hear about ‘visionary art’ I usually react with a cringe. Most of this genre is the product of under-talented, overdosed navel gazers. Many who are attracted to visionary arts are promised a retinal nirvana, a focused porthole into another dimension, a deeply conceptual experience that is a visual open door. But this artistic sojourn requires such an intense level of skill and endurance that only a blessed few are up for the task. I recently had the good fortune to spend an evening with three artists who have taken that difficult journey to its biblical mountaintop.
