^ that doesn't sound good. what happened?
i suppose it's the fact the rock show sold out in 4 hours while the intimate art show is going pretty slow...
i think it's just that in berlin, life is much much cheaper, everything from food to alcohol to rent...
my cousin lives there and for a big, central flat in Mitte (3 bedrooms, one big living room, kitchen, bathroom),
she and her girlfriend pay 500€ (250 each).
that sum in london, paris, or milan, gets you a shitty small room and not even in the center.
so i wouldn't say "poor"...just...money has a different value,
so people maybe don't feel like investing a month of rent for an art show, especially when there are always hundreds of free shows every month,
it's a town bustling with creativity and art <3
nevertheless, it's going to be a kickass event
