helau!

DSC00758it’s carnival season and ‘helau!’ is the narrenruf in one of the capitals of carnival in germany – düsseldorf (as opposed to ‘alaaf’ in the even bigger capital of carnival – cologne). this is a window of the haus des karnevals in düsseldorf’s old town. i found it surprisingly austere.

you typically don’t get to notice  anything carnivalistic over here in berlin. that’s actually quite okay, though :)

spiderweb

spiderweb

yes, it’s an actual spiderweb and not something metaphorical this time :)

from the tomás saraceno exhibition in the k21 ständehaus in düsseldorf.
these spiderwebs are actually not the main attraction but a giant steel wire net in three levels about 25 meters above the ground that you can climb into if you don’t have a problem with getting a bit of vertigo… i found it to be a lot of fun.
