When we met Young-Mi for the shooting in Kreuzberg, she told us very impressively her story, which has a lot to do with intuition, longing, perseverance and a great deal of courage. After all, Young-Mi is a trained actress and was just about to start her career after she got a starring role in a movie during her drama course. She moved to Berlin and stayed, even after the film was shot. "Berlin is a very special city for me because I believe that in no part of the world people could be so relaxed and at the same time experience so much energy. The city is vivid and always changing, but there are also a lot of nice quiet places. It's the best city in the world for me. I just do not want to live anywhere else“, says Young-Mi. We would miss her too, because with her idea of offering Korean food in Berlin, she has hit a nerve of the times. This was again accidental and was owed - only so much - a bet with a friend.
On a design market in Berlin, she tried out whether the Berliners would like Korean food and offered Korean crepes and kimchi. Kimchi, the pickled cabbage next to the bibimbap - which we prepared together - probably is the most popular food in Korea. Since Young-Mi quickly needed a name for her small business, which was not designed for the future, and her friends always called her Kimchi Princess at that time, her decision had been made. Kimchi Princess then became the first restaurant which Young-Mi started in 2009. Two more followed. We can conclude that Berliners love Korean food and not just them.
"Light is energy, it's emotion, it's mood," says Czech designer Lucie Koldova. And the moment we saw her lamps for the first time, we knew exactly what she means. Her lamps have that certain something that you can not escape. But before they decorate a room, they go through a complex production process and the hands of more than thirty people. In the glass factory of Brokis in Janstejn, which manufactures Lucie Koldova's lamps, we could see this. Bohemian glass craft in perfection.
One could call her the first super model of art history. The goddess of beauty in Sandro Botticelli’s ‘The Birth of Venus’ is still a source of inspiration to artists, advertising experts or designers today. We went to Florence to take a close look.
Ten paintings that everyone knows. Ten painters and their biographies. Ten masterpieces of art history. Hundreds of thousands times quoted, reproduced and received. In the series "Masterpieces Revisited" we travel to the most famous museums in Europe, show their most famous works and try a new approach to each.
What are the characteristics of Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa to be an icon? Or the scream of Edvard Munch? Advertisers, designers, artists and art historians tell us why the old masterpieces are still very modern. They show us their interpretations and talk with us about their motivations.
In the ten-part TV series "Masterpieces Revisited" the Berlin film production Basiliscus Film dedicates ten pictures on behalf of Deutsche Welle, which gained cult status and our camera team made an extraordinary journey across Europe to the most famous paintings in art history.
