We discovered a great exhibition space – Kewenig gallery. The main exhibition right now is titled “White Black Death Gold” and shows works by E. Friedberg. This exhibition gave us an opportunity to discuss not only the death of gold in the frame of art, but also its magical birth from lead in the process called chrysopoeia, as the philosopher’s stone exists! It is however not a stone.

Long read with a scientific discussion of the cocktail party effect:

"You enter our favourite bar through an arch made of living vine, which hides the entrance a little bit and could symbolize abundance, luxury and well drinks or more symbolic a gathering. If you pass this arch you enter a special gathering indeed – The Coven."

What do photography and physics have in common? Sometimes it is as simple as a name. Helmut Newton and Isaac Newton share same last name and title of genius. As a new exhibition is opened in Helmut Newton foundation, we have a chance to discuss his work and to show the impact of the discovery of gravitation by Isaac Newton on a particular example.

Our new post as an idea where to eat and drink in Berlin this weekend: https://alkimiaberlin.com/100-gramm/

"100 Gramm is a new bar in Russian or US-American style close to Rosenthaler Platz. Why Russia or US? Because in this bar you can order food. This is common in these two huge countries, however there are not many bars in Berlin, where it is possible."

In the Bergstraße we visited Redwood bar, which is designed around a counter made of a huge piece of Redwood from USA, California, and drinks based on strong spirits in prohibition style. Continuing the topic of wood and alcohol connected despite the ocean between them, we discussed the whisky and bourbon barrels. Specifically, why in some regions in Kentucky bourbon gets stronger over time.

Dear friends! Our summer break is almost over and we are happy to introduce our article about the exhibition in Tchoban Foundation.

Follow this link: https://alkimiaberlin.com/2019/08/23/topology-in-cinema-and-mathematics/

The exhibition about film architecture in Tchoban foundation engages the visitor with the topic of cinematic spaces, which are subset of real physical space, but sometimes tries to use the means of art to give the viewer an opportunity to experience spaces different from our day-to-day perception. Based on this introduction this article discussed the basics of the generalization of spaces in mathematics and shows a way to define a Hilbert space, as an equivalent to our surroundings, starting with a topological space, as a space with least restricitons.

"Velvet is a bar in the heart of Neukölln, which changes its menu every week and uses not alcohol, but specific tastes as foundation of their cocktails. They have their own lab, where they produce among other destillates and tinctures from locally grown ingredients. Here the process of fermentation and following destillation and their difference to the process of obtaining a tincture will be discussed."

In this article the modern sculpture and it’s development through 20th and 21th century is summarized based on the exhibition of British sculpture from Tate Modern in Palais Populaire. On the basis of these works the question whether science can be seen as a new religion is discussed.

Did you ever wonder why there are 7 pitches in an octave? Check our new article: https://alkimiaberlin.com/2019/04/04/a-century-of-bauhaus/

In this article the BAUHAUS year 2019 will be introduced and two exemplary events shortly described. These events focused on less known BAUHAUS subjects – dance, performance and music. Based on these topics the origin of the octave in the common music will be discussed along with the mathematical foundation of it, which directly leads to the development of the 12-tone scale, which was used by Gertrud Grunow for teaching at BAUHAUS.

Shorts: Hackendahl

With this post we introduce a new section – Shorts. We love to share our experiences with you. Unfortunately, it is not always possible to compile a whole article about a location, sometimes because of lack of inspiration and sometimes because of lack of time. As nightlife and cultural life in Berlin are unpredictable, we might end up at several exhibitions and/or bars in one day/night and nevertheless we would love to share our experiences with you.

Opposite to our feature articles Shorts will contain just a short description and rating of a location or event we attended. In this way we will be able to keep you posted as you are waiting for our next long read!

Last Sunday we visited a bar in Berlin Mitte: Hackendahl!

Our rate: 3.7 / 5.0
Location: Friedrichstraße 128, 10117 Berlin
Prices: 7 - 8 Euro/cocktail

Our first short article: https://alkimiaberlin.com/hackendahl/

"The bar is called after the "last" horse cab-man "the iron Gustav" Hackendahl, who drove from Berlin to Paris in two months. Similarly the bar is closer to a nice pub."

The recreational visit of the “Stairs” bar with accompanying tasting of different cocktails which form a creativity stairs – classic, with twist or signature, lead to the discussion on recreational mathematics. The Penrose stairs, impossible objects as well as seemingly impossible aperiodic coverage of infinite surface with tiles, which once proved, culminated in discovery of quasi-crystals and change of the definition of the crystal itself.

Happy New year, friends! We are back with our new article: https://alkimiaberlin.com/2019/01/04/about-love-and-death/

A short description of the recent photography exhibitions at the C/O in Berlin titled “Nobuyoshi Araki: Impossible Love – Vintage Photographs” and “The last image: Photography and Death” leads us to the questions about love and death. As the exhibitions deal with these two subjects, their definitions and connections are of particular interest for us and most of all the question if love might be caused by death.

The exhibition in me Collectors Room/Stiftung Olbricht features three hundred objects under the title – “The moment is eternity”. The presented pieces of art deal, capture or remind in a static way about passing of time and human struggle to capture, to stop or to prolong it. After the description of the exhibition this publication will discuss the nature of time, its perception and importance, as well as the last scientific findings, including the quantum time.

https://alkimiaberlin.com/2018/12/14/canvasbar-revisited/

The CanvasBar is a pop-up bar in the U3 station at Potsdamer Platz, which combined art exhibition and mixology under the motto – “creativity”. It was sponsored by Bombay Sapphire and curated by Martin Thibault – a Sapphire Bombay ambassador and mixologist, and Susie Kahlich – a producer and content creator. Several artists turned the underground space into a canvas and Sapphire Bombay created a bar, where all visitors could unleash their creativity! This article will be dealing with creativity and a particular chemical reaction used in the cocktail “The Milky Way”.

The exhibition consists of video, audio and text and thematic history, capitalism, human responsibility and AI with help of a thought experiment paralleling Maxwell’s demon. Further text deals with the demons in science and art as well as with the phenomenon of AI. You are welcome to continue to read, to visit the exhibition or both, in whichever order you prefer.

This is a launch of our new blog - Alkimia Berlin. It takes an ancient trade of alchemy and tries to turn the lead of a thought to a gold of a word. Alchemy was an early science fused with philosophy and mystery. Like anything, which cannot be fully conceived by human mind, it has a touch of magic. In this blog two main and different approaches are brought together - science and art, feeling and mind, conscious and intuitive. We will reflect on the science of art and mixology, the art of science and the architecture of everything. #berlin #berlinnightlife #bar #berlinberlin #germany #art #museum #nightlife #visitberlin #hauptstadt #blog #writing #science #de
