Stattbad revisited

Neue Berliner Räume closed the Robert Montgomery exhibition, Echoes of Voices in the High Towers, with a dinner and book launch at Stattbad — a former public pool building in Wedding.

Large format book (50x34cm) on the exhibition by the publisher, Mono Kultur — those people from Berlin who do that very small format magazine of the same name that a surprising number of Australians seem to be familiar with.

Cooking up a risotto in the Schwimmenmeister’s office.

Miss Read and abc

Arrived in Berlin on 15 September at the end of  Berlin Art Week and decided to catch Art Berlin Contemporary on its second to last day and was too jet lagged to take much in, but I liked the simplicity of their display and signing system — bootprints and all.

Not so great for display systems and signage was the artist book festival attached to it called Miss Read. Most publishers literally had to be interrogated to find out who they were and what they did —but it was worth it, and the real reason for my visit on the day. More on independent publishers later.

Cake, flora, opera

Café Japone, Randwick, Sydney was playing opera. It seemed just right for their choice of plate.
