Hot Coworking Summer @ betahaus

On 27 April, we're throwing a big birthday to celebrate our 10 years in beta and shape a utopian future together with our community. Wondering what UtopiaX means, what you'll find in the Zen Zone and which artists are exhibiting in the The Basement? Here's what we've got lined up for you at our 10 Years in beta party!

Fangen wir mal von hinten an: Letzte Woche haben wir ein aufgelöstes Wohnheim in der Prignitz ausgeräumt und alles eingepackt, was nicht bei drei auf die Bäume kam. Zwei Robben und 100 Kilometer später stehen nun Holzbänke auf der Terrasse, wir haben eine alte Schreibmaschine zum Offlinetwitter gemacht und das betahaus sieht wieder etwas weniger "beta" aus und etwas mehr wie zu Hause.

Anfang des Monats haben wir ein erstes Event in Kooperation mit unseren good neighbours, dem IMA Design Village veranstaltet. Einzeln hatten wir jeweils zu wenig Räume oder Stühle, zusammen hat es geklappt. Das hat sich dieses Mal zwar eher zufällig ergeben, setzt aber ein Zeichen für die Zukunft am Moritzplatz. Dazu passt auch das Urban Gardening Projekt Prinzessinnengarten, das auf der Wertheimbrache direkt am Kreisel entsteht. Leider gibt es keinen Link dazu. Man darf gespannt sein, wie der Moritzplatz in 2012 aussieht.

Zurück liegt ebenfalls der DMY, sowohl bei IMA als auch bei uns. Wir hatten die Made in Berlin 09 Ausstellung, bei IMA waren die DMY Allstars. Wir sind auf Vortragsreise gewesen beim Internationalen Design Zentrum, bei der Gründerförderung der FU, in Essen zum Sichtwerk Folkwanghochschule. In unserem Café haben wir Vernissage gefeiert mit Jan Pauls. Heute gibt es einen etwas in die Utopie gekippten Artikel in der Süddeutschen über das betahaus.

Aktuell haben wir 100 Coworker im betahaus, die natürlich nicht jeden Tag alle da sind, jedoch über die Woche verteilt vorbei kommen. Im Café sitzen nun auch immer öfter auch mal Laptop Nomaden, die einfach so vorbei kommen und sich auf den Tausch Kaffee-gegen-Wlan einlassen. Vor uns liegt wohl ein Sommerloch, doch die Zukunft sieht weiter rosig aus.

Over and Out

Christoph

From 8pm on, we'll open The Club where the DJ booth and the dance floor will turn into our playground. We've invited hip hop and pole dancers to open the dance floor and have a friends-only crazy-cool lineup planned for the night. We'll be mixing botanical cocktails with Fritz Cola and inviting you into our Photo Booth Room so you can take home some silly photos from the night. In The Club, you will also find The Balloon Room and The Zen Zone which will be our chill spot for the night. Check out the timeline in The Club and learn more about The Zen Zone below.

Make sure to join our Facebook Event and RSVP on Eventbrite, so we can put your name into our Happiness Jar. This birthday bash is all about our community, and together with our partners we've prepared a special Prize Draw.

Throughout the whole night, you will find the rooms of The Basement filled with art pieces from our favorite Berlin-based creatives. From illustrations to paintings to wooden sculptures and installations - we've made sure to host an inclusive Berlin-like mix of all things art. Let us introduce to you to some of the artists, who you will meet down in The Basement:

Have you met .. the Softblobs? Since moving back to Berlin from the US, Gesine Krätzner has been making strange creatures out of fabric that she calls Softblobs. They are cute, random, and they'll be waiting in The Basement if you want to try playing around with them.

From toys made of fabric, we’re moving onto wooden sculptures. Matt Danko knows how to bring wood to life and does it amazingly in his free time. In The Basement, he’ll show his latest furniture pieces and sculptures.

In the same room as Matt, you’ll find Lisa Büscher, who has prepared for us a hyper realistic sculpture presentation that gives it the touch of the extreme, surrealistic and absurd. She de- and reconstructs and reorganizes human bodies like Utopia does society.


In our Photo & Video room you will find works from Collette Pomerleau and Ocean.Now.

Colette is a Berlin-based creative working in photography, art direction and set design. Through her visuals she explores intimacy and anonymity. The space that falls somewhere in between.

Ocean. Now! is a collective that accelerates ocean protection. They work with different types of art to motivate our society to protect the Ocean -Now!

In the early afternoon, based in The Garden, you’ll meet Amaury BOUQUET. He’s a Berlin-based French artist from Saint Maur des Fossés, who has a background in social innovation and loves to play with symbols in his works. At 10 Years in beta, he’ll do his special Humanist Tarot readings from 4-6pm.

Parallel to him, also in The Garden, Sebastian Olivares will be painting live a special Mandala created for betahaus. Sebastian is a Berlin-based visual artist who specializes in painting mandala murals and has painted murals in Germany, Chile, Australia and Thailand.

Throughout the day ilan katin will be putting the party vibes onto a mural, specially created for betahaus. He's a Neukölln-based artist with experience in visual work, both static and performative, graphic design, illustration, comics, installations, animation and live video.

We think this one speaks for itself. If you need a little glitz or glitter to get you into the party spirit, come early and we'll do the rest.



Last, but not least, special thanks to our lovely partners who are helping us making this event happen.
Pilsner Urquell and Fritz Cola for the drinks, Emmy, Drivy, FrameRight, CoffeeCircle, Dream Facilitation, Moruga and BioWine for supporting our Prize Draw and our media partners from Silicon Allee, ASK HELMUT, Creative City Berlin and TechCode.
