The Fotografiska is an international centre for visual art opening in Berlin. From 14 September, the works of local and international talents will be presented on six floors. Three exhibitions dealing with the body, gender and origin will kick off the exhibition.

For "Whiteface", Candice Breitz has collected an extensive archive of footage fragments in which prominent voices speak about the topic of "race". In her video, in which she dubs the statements while wearing a pure white shirt, the disembodied voices come to life.

Juliana Huxtable's video installation addresses the limited identity of the corporeal. And for Nude, an international production by Fotografiska, more than 30 artists from 20 different countries deal with the theme of the body and nudity. Children and minors may only visit this exhibition if accompanied by a parent or guardian.

When: daily 10 a.m. - 11 p.m., from 14 September
Where: Oranienburger Straße 54, Mitte

Let yourself be enchanted by shine, glitter and a magical show.

All children love noodles. Senlei Ye was no different, with his father not only cooking the noodles in hot water, but making them fresh himself. Fresh hand-pulled noodles are then also the speciality at Jade Palast, a Chinese restaurant that Senlei Ye opened in Charlottenburg in July this year. If you wish, you can even watch your noodles being pulled. The noodle dough is made fresh every day and is vegan. It comes with classic tofu, vegetables or even beef with peanut sauce or homemade chilli oil.

When: Monday to Sunday 12 - 22 h
Where: Kantstraße 117 a, Charlottenburg

The Days of Exile are taking place in Berlin for the first time this year. What is it like to leave everything behind and set off into the unknown? Until 9 October, these and other questions will be explored in over 50 events.

Since the end of August, there has been a stamp station on the Way of St. James (Jakobsweg) in Berlin. Year after year, hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world make their way to the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain. Those who pass through the capital can now put a stamp in their pilgrim's passport at the Königin-Luise Gedächtniskirche in Schöneberg. The route through Berlin, the Via Imperii, leads from Stettin, past the Brandenburg Gate, on through Brandenburg, Saxony-Anhalt, Thuringia, Saxony, Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg, Switzerland and France to Spain. If you don't want to embark on a pilgrimage right away, you can find tips for beautiful hikes and walks here.

Streetwear with style is what the Düsseldorf fashion label "Live Fast, Die Young" (LFDY for short) has been offering since July in a new branch near Kurfürstendamm. Arranged by colour, you'll find shirts, hoodies and trousers on a generous 230 square metres, which you can then have delivered in your size. Of course, this means that only a limited number of fashion fans can be served, so there can sometimes be a queue in front of the chic shop. Once you're inside, you can also treat yourself to in-house coffee.

When: Monday to Saturday 11 a.m. - 8 p.m.
Where: Schlüterstraße 45, Charlottenburg
