Helloooo 2012. We were thinking a lot if we should do a 2011 recap or a 2012 forecast. But, frankly I’ve seen quite enough of these on the big wide interdolly and I want to spare you yet another. So let’s get 2012 rolling with our event of the first week. We have the usual mix of art, movies, parties and other opportunities for a fun night after the jump.
Wednesday, Jan 4
If you like short films, you should check out 10 Kurze – a screening of 10 short films at HBC, Karl-Liebknecht-Str. 9, starting at 20h.

I haven’t actually been to KitKatClub since its move to former Sage Club a few years ago. But the concept event Gegen Illusions might be a good reason to check it out after such a long time. The whole event seems quite mystical to me with a haunting teaser trailer and cryptical description text. But one thing’s for sure: there’s a lot going on. Performances, art, live painting, magicians, tarot readers, massages and of course music. Starts at 23h, Köpenickerstr. 76.
Pierre, one half of the Berlin-based event and booking agency Mit Vergnügen, is celebrating his Birthday at what?! club with Gebrüder Teichmann, Clé and many more. Pierrevision #7 starts at 23h, Karl-Liebknecht-Str. 11.
