Member of the Week: Trial&Error

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!

Ein Interview mit Trial&Error Mitglied Judith hat nichts mit einem gewöhnlichen Interview zutun. Diese Frau sprüht vor Ideen und der Lust, diese mit Jedermann und -frau zu teilen. Bei selbstgemachtem Gemüse Aufstrich und süßesten Mangos legt sie los.

Wer und was ist Trial&Error?

Das kann man gar nicht konkret definieren. Im Mittelpunkt unserer Gemeinschaft stehen die Werte: Teilen, Empowering People und Netzwerken.  Wir bieten eine Plattform für D.I.Y.(Do it yourself) Kultur in Berlin. Wir zeigen den Menschen: wenn du Dinge tust, kannst du etwas erreichen und Deine Mitmenschen begeistern. Wir fokussieren uns auf alternative Lebensweisen und suchen nach Ansätzen für ein alternatives Wirtschaftssystem.

Wie kam es zur Gründung von  Trial&Error?

Es begann mit einem Wunsch: wir alle könnten in einer anderen Gesellschaft leben, wenn wir etwas verändern. Kurzerhand haben wir einen Verein gegründet und Aktionen gestartet. Am 3. Oktober 2011 haben wir unser erstes Upcyclehandbuch gelaunched - es ist eine Bedienungsanleitung für D.I.Y. Projekte - einfach verständlich für jeden.

Wie macht ihr auf euch aufmerksam?

Auf unserem Blog www.trial-error.org posten wir Infos zu unseren aktuellen Projekten. Ausserdem kann man dort unser Manifest nachlesen. Natürlich sind wir auch auf Facebook zu finden. Außerdem  fahren wir mit einem „Kiez Mobil“ durch Berlin und versuchen mit den Leuten ins Gespräch zu kommen. Oft bieten wir Strassenaktionen für Kinder (und Erwachsene) an.

Was habt ihr in der Zukunft vor?

Wir wollen das Trial&Error wächst! Wir wollen demokratische, open source Projekte anstossen und einen Diskurs zum Thema D.I.Y. Kultur und nachhaltiges Wirtschaften anstossen.

Wie seid ihr zum betahaus gekommen?

Schon seit Anfang unseres upcycling Projects haben wir eng mit der Open Design City (das ist der Kreativteil des betahaus) zusammen gearbeitet. Wir netzwerken mit betahaus|membern und bieten dem nächst auch Workshops im Haus an.  Einige von Euch haben uns vielleicht beim People in Beta Festival in Aktion erlebt.

Das betahaus is toll für uns, da wir hier eine Plattform gefunden haben, um unsere Projekte weiter zu entwickeln. Wir geniessen die Atmosphäre sehr und das beste: es gibt richtige Werkzeuge in der Open Design City!

Noch ein Aufruf an die betahaus | Member and friends:  jeden ersten Donnerstag im Monat treffen wir uns zum „trash of the month“,  jedes Mal unter einem anderen  Motto. Please join us! More infos... www.trial-error.org

Das Interview führte Henriette Krupke

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.
