Stuttgart Sunday Summer Brunch

The recipe has proved successful, with the sun always having shone (so far), with the playground to occupy the smaller “members”, with the food and drink to satisfy appetites big and small.
And best of all, with a chance to chat for everyone.

Before the Swabian summer holiday season kicks off in earnest, this is a chance to get together – with significant others, offspring and friends – for a relaxed Sunday brunch in a Biergarten in the heart of Stuttgart.

RSVP to stuttgart[at] so we can better gauge the numbers and ensure there is space for everyone.

Landscape – Metropolis Exhibition, 11 July – 8 August, Berlin


Landscape – Metropolis, 10 July – 8 August, 2015

This large-scale exhibition of Finnish Environmental Art in collaboration with Irish curator John Power of G11, and a myriad of Irish/Finnish/Berlin-based artists takes place for the first time in Berlin’s Metropolis, creating a unique platform for the exchange of ideas. The show encompasses an impressive variety of media and scale including large sculptural installations, photography, painting and video works. Concerns for the ecological and the poetic are knitted together in the apt setting of this former power station in Berlin-Schönweide, literally translated to ‘pretty pasture’. Sadly all remnants of these green meadows have long since vanished following Berlin’s industrialization. However, like the remote Finnish forests, or even barren Irish landscapes, Berlin’s industrial wasteland has become the perfect playground for artists, with space and freedom for experimentation, as one can see in this dynamic exhibition.

This exhibition celebrates LARU ART Association, Finland’s 10th anniversary, and will include Human Era, a series of video works on display during the exhibition. LARU ART Association is a Helsinki-based non-profit whose purpose is to promote environmental awareness and art creation and artists collaboration.  This exhibition is kindly supported by Bezirksamt Treptow-Köpenick Berlin, the Arts Council of Uusimaa, Finland and the Embassy of Ireland, Berlin.
