If you’ve been in Berlin in the last few weeks – or indeed, if you’ve been round the Miniloft office in the last few weeks – at some point, you may have encountered some advertisement, some conversation, some article about the newly opened ‘David Bowie’ exhibition. Like Christopher Isherwood in the 1930’s, for expats, Bowie is one of Berlin’s most famous adopted sons, and the ‘David Bowie’ exhibition offers a fascinating glimpse into an iconic career, including one of Bowie’s most creative periods, coincidentally occurring in 1970’s Berlin.

Transplanted to the Martin Gropius Bau after a hype-filled run at the Victoria and Albert museum in London, ‘David Bowie’ is the first retrospective of Bowie’s career and art. The Berlin leg of the exhibition actually features 60 additional items in its multimedia extravaganza, including Bowie’s correspondence with that other Berlin legend, Marlene Dietrich. The exhibition runs until the 10th August, and if you really want the full Bowie Berlin experience, sign up for the Bowie Berlin Walk, which will take you past assorted Bowie hotspots, including the Hansa studios, where the seminal Heroes album was recorded.
