Wednesday, 4 June 2014


Even though we start the week with Wednesday this time, there are sill plenty of things kicking off, which we though you shouldn't miss! Although, regarding the current weather forecast, you might want to choose to leave it all and leap into one of the beautiful Alpine lakes during weekend, which we would totally understand...

Wednesday, 4 June:
MEDIA PHILOSOPHY: Platon Reloaded is a title of the media salon with a renown German philosopher Julian Nida-Rümelin, who will talk about media eduction in the 21st century. Entry is free, register by emailing Blackbox at Gasteig, Rosenheimer Str. 5, starts at 7pm.

Thursday, 5 June:
ARTS PERFORMANCE: After a premiere at Haus der Kunst, Anna McCarthy will be showing her musical How to Start a Revolution in the MaximiliansForum, a wild spectacle which aestheticises rebelion and revolution. This is a good opportunity to visit the underground world of MaximiliansForum if you've never been there, which is an art space in an abandoned underground pass. Maximilianstr. 38. Free, starts at 7pm.

Friday, 6
DIY GLORY: It's time for another ETSY Craft Party! ETSY an online-shop for everything hand-made and has already developed to an international DIY community. This year's topic is "Recapture", which will be all about pimping up your photographs with unusual techniques like stitching or colouring. Make sure to bring along your own pictures! We know of two locations participating in this event. First of all, the Hands Gallery which we already mentioned two weeks ago. Pariser Str. 21, from 5pm until 9pm. Free! The second venue is siebenmachen at 20 St.-Bonifatius-Straße. According to the ETSY webpage it's sold out, but we guess you can still turn up. From 7pm until 9pm. Free!

Saturday, 7 June:
MUSIC FESTIVAL: Gasteig is hosting KLANGfest 2014 offering four stages simultaneously to musicians of various styles and backgrounds. And it's all for free! We would love to check out Andrea Pancur and Ilya Shneyveys who mix Bavarian yodeling with Yiddish klezmer. Doesn't it sound intriguing? Have a look at the whole programme here. Rosenheimer Str. 5. From 3pm until late night.

BICYCLE NIGHT: It's Munich's 5th Radlnacht this year! Various big streets will be closed to traffic to create a 12km route for thousands of cyclists, who will head from Odeonsplatz at 8.30pm. However, you can already come at 5pm and enjoy a live music programme and take advantage of the food stalls. If you want to cycle in style, come with an old bike and dressed up in 1920s look. Watch a video from last year here. Starts at 8.30pm at Odeonsplatz. Free, just turn up!

Sunday, 8 June:
HIKE & SKETCH: Fancy a sketching hike in good company? Go on a guided trip with Madame Regarder Urbanique and bring along your sketch book, pencils, water colours and what have you. This time it will be all about nature, Isar and baroque architecture. There are also tours through the old city on offer on other days. Takes 6h for 6km, you're supposed to sketch a lot after all. Click here to register. Meeting point: S-Bahn station Icking, tickets 45€.
