Stadtbad Neukölln, a pretty stunning treat on our doorstep. Not many changes since it was built in 1914 by Neuköllner Architect Reinhold Kiehl. 

The beautiful Neoclassical Stadtbad consists of a Groß and a Kleine hall, originally one for men one for women. The sauna is a little pricey (10 euros), but as an indulgence, why not stop by on the last Friday of every month; when it is open for a special Midnight sauna and swim! 

Ganghoferstr. 3, 12043 Berlin.

Numen/ For Use For Use used thick transparent sticky tape to create an interactive installation. By stretching, sticking and wrapping thick layers of tape around grounded pillars, beams, trees or whatever standing objects exist in the chosen space Numen/ For Use create a web of tendon tunnels and spaces that can be accessed and crawled through, strong enough to carry human weight. From afar the installation appears like an interwoven structure of bending elastic pipes.

I might enjoy that even more than foreign names for Pokemon: Fluffeluff and Schlurp being particular German favourites.

I think this article about translating Harry Potter is pretty interesting, but then, I study languages.

Welcome to HERE. My #DailySketch
If I had my way I would do nothing but draw images and stories of characters discovering odd worlds and encountering strange people or things. It’s all I want to do. Those are the kinds of stories I want to tell. I wish there was more of a place in the direct market for this kind of material. Not just for me as a creator who wants to make and sell it there, but as a fan of those kind of stories, and a father who’s son is intrigued by them as well.

There are 21 million people in slavery as we sit here. I just hope that 150 years from now, our ambivalence will not allow another filmmaker to make this film.

Director Steve McQueen, whose “12 Years a Slave” won the BAFTA Award for best film today.

Or more importantly read about modern day slavery such as the abuse of workers preparing for the World Cup in Qatar - which is expected to leave 4 000 dead
