I hope you all are prepared for the big GIF show on Wednesday! The GIFs have been created, the music has been selected, the Christmas tree is chopped and the cupcake decoration is being made as we speak! Prepare for our Christmas event of the season: GIF. ME. BERLIN. – a photographic exhibition of animated GIFs. Twelve Berlin-based photographers and artists are presenting their vision of the future. Read more about here and get a preview. And you are all invited to the vernissage and after party at the HBC Kino, Karl-Liebknecht-Str. 9, starting at 19h. There will be a GIF Photo Booth by Loopcam and lots of other fun things to do!
