No man like this man. Ever. Never again. Bye bye, we love you.
Somehow, you pulled words out of the sky in a way we cannot imitate to express who you are and offer our thanks. There was a world before you, but it was not nearly as colourful. There were men and women before you, but fewer glorious creatures in between. There was music before you, but not as electrifying. There was lyricism before you, but not as otherworldly. You gave us thoughts to awaken our own. You gave us worlds to wander in, places to go that were not on any map. We did not need a window. You were our glass. How can we say enough to thank you? We cannot. But we will keep you with us. Where will you float to now? KT/DL

The Attic by Minos Nikolakakis at Egbert Baqué Contemporary Art Berlin , Fri 31. May 8:30pm
When Manos, a 50 year old man gets divorced from his wife, he moves in a new house in order to start all over again. Quite unexpectedly he discovers something spectacular. Ziggy, his childhood pop idol, is rehearsing in the most unusual of places. His attic.
Following the acclaimed German premiere at the 9th Berlin International Directors Lounge the wonderful film by Minos Nikolakakis will be screened again as part of Wild Horses #3, a dedicated night during the exhibition “Tribute to David Bowie"at Egbert Baqué Contemporary Art Berlin.
The Attic comes in combo with a (German) reading by Detlef Kuhlbrodt
Leben mit David Bowie: Wie sieht der denn aus?
What makes this exhibition so extraordinary is that it’s not striving on the bandwagon of the first Bowie record in ten years. It’s curated fondly and with passion (something that’s rare these days) and stands on its own right. – Iriedaily
The exhibition is small but vital, seemingly capturing the soul of the popstar at that moment in his career. – Berlinified
