Hamburger Bahnhof, Dottir, and the Sammlung Erika Hoffmann: Constance Breton’s Berlin

No contributor

The ninth edition of the Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art opened over the weekend. In case you’re in town, or plan on visiting in advance of Art Basel next week, we checked in with Constance Breton, the founder of Buro Constance Breton, about her favorite spots in Berlin.

#BestKeptSecret
“Culture spot—the James Turrell light installation in the chapel of the Dorotheenstädtische Cemetery. It is still one of those cultural gems not very known. Food spot—Dottir, a small restaurant in Mitte, whose kitchen is run by the young talented chef Elisa Eliasdottir (the niece of the renowned artist Olafur Eliasson).”

#SundayRoutine
“I like to wake up early and go for a run in the Tiergarten park or along the Spree river. Then, I either go for a late breakfast at Einstein Coffee in Kufurstenstrasse or for brunch at the Soho House. In the afternoon, I either go see a museum show at the Hamburger Bahnhof for contemporary art or or I go watch a movie at Babylon Kino, which is one of the oldest theaters in Berlin. I usually end up having an early bite in my neighborhood in Mitte at Monsieur Vuong or at Mogg Deli.”

#FairFirstTimers
“The Ehemalige Judische Maedchenschule in Augustrasse. This former Jewish girl’s school has been converted by the Berlin-based gallerist Michael Fuchs a few years ago into a center for art and gastronomy after it was left abandoned for decades.”

#InspoSpot
“The Sammlung Erika Hoffmann—a tour of the Hoffmann Collection is a very special cultural experience. Erika and Rolf Hoffmann lived and worked there, surrounded by their collection, for 40 years. Since the death of her husband in 2001, Erika Hoffmann has continued to welcome people into her home and workspace every Saturday.”
