Since a few weeks the city center of Potsdam has been enriched by another great cultural attraction: the Museum Barberini. Filled with pieces reaching from the Old Masters to contemporary artists, this place is a true sensation for art lovers. It took quite some time to find the right place and building for the museum but with the newly build Plazzo Barberini the art, mainly sponsored by Hasso Plattner, has finally found a good setting. The architecture of the building is beautiful: free, spacious and filled with light. If you plan to visit the museum make sure to bring some time and make sure to buy some tickets before. Even though its already open since a few weeks there are still queue in front of the main entrance in the morning. Another great tip: download their free! App and enjoy some good, short entries on the art displayed in the museum. Museum Barberini Alter Markt Humboldtstraße 5–6 14467 Potsdam What To Wear to this location
Its been a while since we shared a post with you but we have been extremely busy lately and figured we only would like to come back posting, when we have more content to share with you. The past weeks I have been running between university lectures and dance training. Last October I started my M.A. study program (dance science) at the Freie Universität Berlin. After finishing my B.A. in art history and history I figured it was time to pick-up a field I dream of working in. Studying art history and history was good and I still consider working in this section but I’m really looking forward to expand my horizon in the dance science area. During the next weeks we will share more personal information with you, show you new places, offer some recipes and shopping details. These pictures were taken at the Hamburger Bahnhof, a museum offering a range of contemporary art. The collection permanently displayed is not my favorite (except the works of Warhol and Lichtenstein) one but the building itself …
Rainy weekend days are made for visiting the museum and Berlin just offers such a great variety. Since a few weeks the Bode Museum is hosting the exhibition “Canova und der Tanz” (Canova and the dance). This exhibition features works of the Italian neoclassical sculptor Antonio Canova. As a special highlight they offer guided tours (approx. 60 minutes long) with a little performance of a corps de ballet dancer from the Staatsballett Berlin (this could have been a little longer in my opinion). The ballet dancer also wears a recreation of the dress worn by the Canovas famous sculpture “The Dancer” and you somehow visualize the whole scenery on how the sculptor created this piece. These tours are limited and you certainly need to book a ticket in advance however the exhibition is also worth a visit without the tour.

Throwback to a wonderful time in Milan. Of course I had to visit Bar Luce, part of the Fondazione Prada und fully designed by creative genius Wes Anderson. I can actually say, I felt more like being part of a colorful film set like the one of Grand Budapest Hotel that being in a café in Milan. But that is exactly what makes Bar Luce so exciting – it is so otherworldly, it transports you into a different place and you can somehow fade out day-to-day life.

When I visited Milan some weeks ago, of course a must-see was the Fondazione Prada. It’s a modern and futuristic complex, filled with art and the café designed by Wes Anderson, Bar Luce. The Fondazione Prada is not necessarily what you would suspect from a complex build by a fashion house. The branding is very subtle, the design modern and the focus is on art rather than fashion. The architecture behind this concept is Rem Koolhaas and his team OMA/AMO.
Through my Art History studies I knew that the National Gallery of Art in Washington had a lot of art but when I walked through the breath-taking building I was still mesmerized. The whole museum is so beautifully arranged and the pieces are delicately hanged or placed in the rooms. For a art fan a true bliss! But most of all I was fascinated by the East and West Garden Court – a tropical oasis were I just could have stayed forever. And best part? All of this is for f r e e! If you want to visit this museum make sure to plan your day around it. It takes time but is certainly worth it.

Yesterday we headed towards the Hamburger Bahnhof, a museum for contemporary art, displaying pieces by artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Joseph Beuys and many others. We really enjoyed some of the works while others were rather questionable. At some point it’s hard to like modern art even when you try to get a grip of the artists mind. It really depends on the way how it captures once minds. The outfit Jana is wearing is a day to night combination. For the day just throw a fluffy cardigan over a super skinny dress, add some bling with a glittery necklace and chose some mid heeled booties. For night leave the cardigan in the car and go for some killer heels. Put on some metallic eyeshadow and your ready for a night out. Dress – H&M Cardigan – Zalando Collection Necklace – NoaNoa
When you start studying Art History you simply can’t avoid to go to the museum. The Gemäldegalerie is an art museum and holds one of the world’s leading collections of European art from the 13th to the 18th centuries. You can find masterpieces from artists such as Albrecht Dürer, Lucas Cranach, Hans Holbein, Jan van Eyck, Raphael, Caravaggio, Rubens, Rembrandt and Vermeer. Just to name a few.
♫ Citizens – True Romance ♫ We for sure couldn’t miss this exhibition. The Little Black Jacket Chanel’s Classic Revisited by Karl Lagerfeld & Carine Roitfeld U3 Bahnhof & Tunnel Potsdamer Platz 1 10785 Berlin (for those who aren’t sure if they should go: the whole exhibition is free and you also get a poster for free. Hope that makes the decision easier)
