Next Friday and Saturday the Kühlhaus is showing the scent exhibition “Smells of the City” as part of the arts festival Chinesischer Herbst. Air designers Aoiro (http://aoiroair.com) will be recreating the characteristic smells of Beijing – I’m really looking foward to seeing how they’ll do it! I will also write my next Mintel retail trend article on the scent exhibition and the work of Aoiro. Check out their website, they do some really exciting stuff! EDIT: And here is the Mintel article on Aoiro’s scent exhibition: Aoiro brings the scents of Beijing to Berlin.

I went to see some of the exhibitions of Chinesischer Herbst in the Kühlhaus yesterday (a really great location, by the way!) and stayed to watch a performance by the Beijing Young Dramatists Association – utterly riveting; they performed “Zen – Tea”, a modern dance interpretation of an old chinese tea poem. Here are some pics, if you’re in Berlin today or tomorrow, go and catch one of their performances, it is so worth it:
This week I’ll visit some of the photography exhibitions of Chinesischer Herbst, a cultural festival presenting contemporary Chinese art. I’ll be reporting for globe-M but I would have gone anyway – the programme sounds fascinating, photography, video art, performances, movies and concerts….check it out here (German only, sorry! www.kuehlhaus.de)! The festival takes place near U2 station Gleisdreieck.
I also want to attend the Anna von Schrottenberg concert and of course see the ‘fragrance exhibition’ which portrays the different scents associated with the city of Beijing – the curators are calling it an ‘air design installation’! Exciting!!!!
