Was looking for pictures from the underground station Bayrischer Platz lately.
Somewhat interesting.
Even after 3 attempts nothing found about the 3 pictures above.
But instead found lots of cat and bunny pictures...

Seen: 10 Cloverfield Lane.
After all, a very good SF movie.
Seen in a somewhat small sub-cinema at Potsdamer Platz.
In a German version.
It was still very good, I think.

...cause its witchcraft... (Frank Sinatra)


One year ago was the last complete day out there.
There were some last courses I missed.
I sat in the corridor hall and waited.
Maybe four houres, maybe more.
I think I missed lunch.
It was the last time I saw her...

This sculpture is placed on the campus of the Westend clinic aside from the entry to the house D.
On the plaque at the base of the sculpture you can read:

Konrad Winzer

Don Giovanni
und die Bildhauerei

Eine Leihgabe
der Galerie Brusberg, Berlin

The last paragraph means that this sculpture is lended to the clinic by the Galery Brusberg, Berlin.
There is no date or other information given.

The strange Object in front of the Kurbel, Spring 2012

In front of the Kurbel there is a place which was empty until last year.
Now they have installed a strange, rusty object there.
It has no inscription or plate.
To call it art is somewhat difficult for me.

If it hadn't rained that evening I probably had made some more pictures.

Blue Sheep in front of the Humboldtbox

Annual set 9Picture 66
Camera:Canon Powershot SX210
Category:Art, Architecture
Online since:2011-07-16

The blue sheep were on the Schlossplatz for only one day.
They have their own web site: (only in German).
The Humboldtbox on the other side seems to have no web site currently.
It was built in the tradition of the Infobox at the Potsdamer Platz.
For me it is really more uglier than the Infobox and the temporary art hall called "White Cube".
But after all it is only temporary, too.
It is supposed to be replaced by a 590 million euro expensive ugliness called Humboldtforum.
This will be a building with the fassade of the former city palace of the imperialistic aera of Berlin.
With dome.
If not the shortage of money will throw a monkey wrench in this plan.
I'm still for a park with lots of trees at this place. And in the woods there would be two signs:

Here was the former city palace.

Here was the former palace of the republic.

Obviously the camera has not focused on the statue but more on the autumn trees.
Next time I might select the focus distance manually.

Riding Bikes, Summer 2010

Also this sculpture has plate at the border of the basin. On this you can read:

Robert Rauschenberg
*1925 Port Arthur, USA
Riding Bikes, 1998
Neon auf Metallständer / Neon on metal rack

The plate was obviously installed before 2008, because in 2008 Robert Rauschenberg died on Captiva Island, USA.

The sculpture simply looks better in the dark... To get a better impression I have again raised the saturation and twiddled a bit on the gradiation curve. The original was again somewhat pale.

Related to the sculpture in red and blue there is a bronze plate, which contains a twist of numbers. On the plate you can read:

Keith Haring
1985 Reading, USA - 1990 New York, USA
Untitled (Boxers), 1987
Lackierter Stahl / Coated steel

The year of birth of Keith Haring was in fact 1958.

The building in the background is the Kammermusiksaal (chamber music hall).

If you walk through Berlin, there barely is something to see from the time between 1933 and 1945. Taken beside the Olympiastadion, the Tempelhof airport and some government buildings in the center of the city the Third Reich seems to be extinct. But then you suddenly see details which still remembers of it. So the two statues at the corner Königin-Elisabeth-Straße Knobelsdorfstraße do.

The light quarders in front of the Volkswagen University Library of the Technical University and the University of Arts in the Fasanenstraße. - They really change their color. - In reality this looks far better than on a photo. - I wanted to make an animated GIF of this, but some of the photos were blurred and unusable.

I have googled the web for it, but I haven't found much about it.
By the way, Google doesn't work right anymore with my ancient Mozilla 1.2.1.
Only at the extended search the input fields appear.
Never mind, Yahoo still works for me.
And Bing works, too, but without the background picture.

Yet another tourist photo.
The sculpture in front of the Treptowers is called Molecule Man.
Its 30 meter high and was made by Jonathan Borofsky in 1999.
You have to google for this only a little bit.
And if you google for it, you will find better pictures of it.
