It was a typical crazy day in Berlin and as usual I was running late.  I rang the bell apprehensively, as I wasn't quite sure I had arrived at the right place.  It was a very nondescript facade, but then I noticed there was a subtle UNIV ERSE sign on the door, so indeed I had arrived. Brody Polinsky Queer Clean & Sober Tattoo Artist Brody Polinksy answered the door and offered me a pair "hausschuhe" and suggested I take a seat on the couch as he disappeared to return to his lunch guests. I was left to absorb the ambiance of UNIV ERSE. Bare exposed walls, black floors, low light, a tattoo station in the corner with a long table strewn with designs. What struck me was the cool…

Berlin Art from a Queer Perspective

Berlin Art from a Queer Perspective

Recently, I had the chance to sit down with Henrik Dencker from the Berlin Gallery Dencker & Schnieder. The gallery was founded in Copenhagen in 2011 and in Berlin in 2013 by the two Danish artists; Henrik Dencker and Sonny Schneider. We seldom show our own art pieces but represent European artists and handful artists from the Americas. Last 5 years we had had about 50 exhibitions and more than 100 artists exposed. Berlin Art from a Queer Perspective In curating your shows, your approach is from a Queer perspective.  What does that mean? We define ourselves as a queer gallery. Not particularly gay or straight, but both and what is in between. We want to confront the normative – we want to show something queer and odd. We curate…

We headed out the other evening to take in the Festival of Lights.  It was a bit drizzly, but it didn't dampen the joy of wandering around Berlin to check out a variety of landmarks lit up for the occasion. The 5th anniversary year is themed “Colors of Joy.” The illuminations and the program include again many emotional moments, exciting stories, new activities and many highlights. We are especially pleased to celebrate this wonderful event for the fifth year in a row with the Potsdamer Platz in the bright heart of Berlin and once more to make this place the center of the Festival of Lights.
