“Introducing…” Art Salon Series :: Part 1 Sunday April 18 @ 19.30

April 18, 2009

“Introducing…”, is an art salon style evening where 2 artists, designers and clever individuals introduce themselves via their creative activities.  Each presenter determines the format for their presentation utilizing the beamer, computer slide projector and sound system here at Skizum Studios Berlin. MAP

The evening will start at 19.30 and run until 22.30 with a half hour break inbetween presentations.  Entrance is free and there will be drinks available with smoking outside the studio only please.  Part 1 of this series will be curated by Anna Maria O´Keeffe (Austrailia) and Desmond Shortt (Irerland):

Anna-Maria Okeeffe’s most current work is focused primarily on sculpture as meduim, through which a number of recurrent themes are explored, particularly the landscape panorama. These physical renditions of environments have ranged in size from miniature through to room sized installations at 1:1 scale. Images of some of these works and accompanying texts can be found at the following links:

Desmond Shortt is an Irish painter, “An enthusiastic exponent of contemporary Rococo and Baroque”.  He joins Skizum after a six month tour of India where he began his music studies.

“His paintings are fantasy extravaganzas – preposterously camp pictorial inventions. They feature an eclectic cast of characters, including anthropomorphic, Disney-like cartoonish animals, fairy tale princes and princelings and wildly pneumatic, shapely nudes. “

Part 2 of the series is scheduled for Sunday May 3, featuring John Howland (Austrailia) and Ve Magni (America)

Part 3 features myself, Scottie B,  and is scheduled to take place on Saturday May 16.  This event will also feature a Party in conjunction with our neighbors and take place in all 450qm of our combined spaces

If you would like to present your work at future events, please contact us at

the extra room :: Launch Party :: Fri 29.02 :: 20h RAW

February 28, 2008

extra room identity

the extra room is a Berlin-based English language print (maga)zine born of late night walks and Berlin’s Landwehrkanal. Or to tweak that equation, it was c-sectioned at the crux of creativity and collaboration. The bastard fruit of the union of two minds, those of editors Mara Goldwyn and Adam Collingsworth, the project came to life in the summer of 2007.

The party starts at 20:00 Uhr, at the Ambulatorium of
the RAW-Tempel, at Revalerstr. 99 in Friedrichshain,
right after the S-bahn Warschauer Str. station.

There will be plenty of reading material, as well as
the music acts below.


Lee Viajero (possibly with the Edgy Drifters) –

Andre Vida (solo saxophone)

Julian Ringel (krackelbox)

dbZwoVier (formerly la banque allemande) –  thoughtful

with likely, last minute surprise from:
Mister Abbey (acoustic pop-punk, from copenhagen)

New Year’s Eve Par-tay, Brooklyn Style! Free 22:30

The last party a couple of weeks ago was so good that even the police had a good time breaking it up.  So this party is dedicated to everyone who helped make the last party so much fun but this time we can’t get shut down for too much noise, I even think it’s illegal to break up a party on new years anyway.  Dj skizum spins everything from rare groove and funk to break beats and drum ‘n bass until the last one standing falls.   Captain Waterproof is in charge of the fireworks, bring whatever you want to drink and smoke but leave your shoes and troubles at the door.  (p.s. to the naked couple: please bring your own whip cream this time)
