Sure, Köln sometimes lacks the vibrant metropolitan vibe like Berlin, Hamburg and hell, even Munich. Aaaand yes, I know we are all supposed to dislike the capital and yet I’m sure most of us jealously look to her because of the cool parties that get thrown there.
At the other hand there is a very active art scene in my city am Rhein, ready to hold boredom at bay. The happenings are often small but luckily also the number of pretentious people attending.
Last week I explored that scene a little and had fun at one reading and two vernissages. Let me first tell you about the reading and save the other two evenings for my next posts.
The reading got held at the super sweet Le Pop Lingerie where young author and father Frank Berzbach told us about his books and the philosophy behind them, making some pretty good points. He wrote his books mostly with creatives in mind but actually everybody could use the advise he gives. The title of his newest work is “Die Kunst ein kreatives Leben zu führen” and as far as I now only available in German. But maybe it gains the success of predecessor “Kreativität aushalten: Pychologie für Designer” and will also be published in other languages.
My brother Omid studied design in Aachen and I think this will be a great present for him. I think I will gift him this and when he is finished I’ll read it, too.
This was the first time I went out in the position of a blogger. I was soooo nervous getting my camera out and to take some pics… they all turned out pretty shaky. Fortunately there was an actual photographer present and he allowed me to use his shots so you can see what the evening looked like.
