As they say, if we were in Berlin, we’d go to this. Maybe. We have no idea what it is but the invite was too cool not to post.


Just in time for the winter season, we inaugurate our new fireplaces, have hot honey wine and celebrate the get together of finest graphic and illustrative art:

The illustrator Erik Mark Sandberg shows us quite plainly the topics beauty craze and consumer culture, in intensive 
shiny colours, in his solo exhibition “Down by the river”, while we also can admire the increasing diversity of cutting 
edge graphic design by the group exhibition “graphic detour” (with Erik Steinbrecher, Damien Poulain, a.o.).

Erik Mark Sandberg is actually an American artist, based in LA, who has exhibited worldwide. He’s best known for his images of hairy children mixed with startling pop culture tableaux.

You know what, if we were in Berlin, we WOULD go to this.


  1. Mmm…. Glühwein… The perfect antidote to holiday shopping!

    The Direktorenhaus (with an interesting history!) is located a few blocks south of “The Pope’s Revenge”, near Alexanderplatz. Cross the Spree, and the Pergamon Museum is a nice walk away, on Fischer/Museumsinsel. There is also a Christmas market at Der Alex, with a ferris wheel, ice rink, model railroad, and carousel.
