Monday, 24 February 2014


Time to move on. Really sorry we skipped the previous weekend, but being both born in Ukraine, we couldn't think of anything else but the events in Kiev during the last few days. Hopefully things have changed for the better now. So here's to a new week of great international cultural events in Munich!

Monday, 24 February:
RUSSIAN POLITICAL CABARET: Something for our Russian speaking followers: An evening with Victor Shenderovich, an outspoken critic of the Putin regime and a highly gifted, popular satirist and writer. Kulturzentrum Gorod, 7.30PM, tickets are 15€ (don't be late, a full house is very likely).

Tuesday, 25 February:
MAKE FRIENDS: Come and meet new people at the Couch Surfer's weekly meeting, which will be held at Kulturjurte this time. Bring your traveling or CS experience pictures, take part in laughing yoga exercises, have a beer and dance to the music! Kulturjurte is a unique project in Munich, which uses empty spaces for concerts, art installations, food sharing campaigns and all sorts of alternative projects! Currently they reside in the abandoned factory of the “Isartalbahn” in Thalkirchen, Benediktibeurerstr. 22. Starts at 7pm.

Wednesday, 26 February:
DESIGN EVENTS: The Munich Creative Business Week is in town. Spread over several locations, it includes talk, exhibitions and workshops ranging from architecture and industrial design to experimental art installations and maker initiatives. Recommended on Wednesday: an pop-up creative lab organised by Nürnberger FabLab, at the BMW Welt - Doppelkegel, Am Olympiapark 1. From 9am until 6pm.
On Thursday our hackers-friends will introduce you to the world of 3D printing at Werk 1, and the brand new hacker space Munich Maker Lab. See the full programme online here or a PDF-version here.

Thursday, 27 February:
GEEKY TALKS: At last! After a long winter break another Nerd Nite is awaiting us! (We've already mentioned them previously.) An evening with three experts who talk about their passions. This time you will get the chance to hear about the history of mainframe computers by Wolfgang Stief, sea-devils and their illumination by Julia Schmidt-Petersen, and early history of sound reproduction by Karl Bruckmaier. The first and the third topics sound especially intriguing for such media history geeks as we happen to be. Neuraum, Arnulfstr. 17. Tickets 5€. Starts at 7.30pm.

Friday, 28 February:
BICYCLE REPAIR: Bike Kitchen (which we once described in this post) visits Kulturjurte. This is where you can get advise and help with repairing your bike. There will also be a concert by a garage band Travel in Space, and a bicycle-themed light installation. Free, just turn up. Starts at 5.30pm.

Saturday, 01 March
IMPROV-THEATRE: Haven't been to a theatre performance for a long time? Or always wanted to experience theatre in a new way? Mixxit ImproShow sounds like a huge fun! Come to an evening of laughter, where you co-create the things happening on the stage! Ars Musica, Plinganserstr. 6. Tickets 12€/10€. Starts at 8pm. 

EXHIBITION: 25 artists from 50 countries invite you to their exhibition "Elements of Nature" at Halle50, Domargkstr. 33. We especially recommend to have a look at the amazing Jazz ceramics by our friend Tania Borushko. The show will be on until the 9 March. Free entry, starts at 7pm.

Sunday, 02 March:
CINEMA: Philomena with our beloved Dame Judi Dench is finally out! Cinema will be screening it in English for a nice morning price of just 6,50€. Get your ticket at the ticket office (Nymphenburgerstr. 31), or online. Starts at 10.30am.

By the way, the schools in Bavaria will have a Fasching break next week, and if you still don't know what to do with your kids (age 10-14), here is a great suggestion: sign up for a free workshop at Lothringer 13, lead by the artists Stefan Wischnewski and Anna Blumenkranz, dedicated to the current exhibition "Antwort der Dinge" where kids can experiment with textiles, electronics and every-day objects, and create speaking creatures. Materials cost 7€, runs from 10am until 5pm. Hurry, there are only two places left! To sign up write an e-mail until 26 February to

Radl Bazi at Bike Kitchen.
