Yesterday around 10 past 11 at night I rushed to the shop to get some gummibears. Yes, I’m that addicted. Half past 11 the shop closes, so I had no time to stop, although I saw a view worthy of a shot. “Ah, I just take it on the way back!” I thought to myself. Well, on the way back I pulled the camera out of the bag with some difficulty since I stacked my shopping on top of it, only to realise that there was no card in the camera. “Oh well, I just take my spare card!” This meant searching for my keys – the card case is attached to it. After some 5 minutes of digging in my bag I finally found it … only to realise that the spare card was at home. Well, how silly is that? So, in the end I didn’t take any pictures yesterday after all. Instead I post a picture from the day before that I edited yesterday. I like the tension in the shot, as if everyone is just running to get out of the station as fast as possible. Sure, it was hot in the subway, but it wasn’t that bad really and it was raining outside! What’s the rush?

  3. Verena, very good picture, very interesting.
    I have a question, you are in the former DDR Berlin? Well there are a plastic artist friends who go to an exhibition of Thacheles.
    Will take one of my photographs to exhibit there.
    Thanks for being so kind with me always.

    • Thanks Cruz!
      Actually I’m in the former West Berlin. However, I live still quite close to the city centre, so Tacheles isn’t very far from me on public transport. Cool that your friends take one of your photographs there! Actually I’ve never been to the Tacheles, but I always wanted to check it out. Do your friends live in Berlin? I’m always interested in meeting new people, especially artists.

    • Hola Carlos. I’m not sure I’m going to be here in August, but in case I am … what’s the event? There is always so much going on in Berlin, it’s hard to keep track!

      • Hola Carlos,
        Tacheles, sí, lo conozco, pero no puedo ver una fecha o un evento en particular en facebook. Tienes más información? (Entiendo castellano pero no lo hablo mucho)

      • Verena eres una genia, hablas perfecto es catellano, mis amigas del Grupo Suprema…
        Buenos Aires acaba de sumarse al apoyo internacional que está obteniendo la Casa de Arte Tacheles, un edificio tomado por artistas en Berlín, para evitar su demolición ( http:/ ). El Grupo Suprema, integrado por Carmen Dalone, Josefina Sajón, Victoria Taylor y Catalina Negri, organizó días atrás una serie de actividades cuyo registro se presentará en Berlín el 18 de agosto, junto con una instalación creada especialmente para esta campaña.
        Seguimos en contacto te aviso cuando hable con ellas…
