Friedrich Kunath’s work focusses on universal themes of the human condition: love, loss, loneliness, optimism and dejection, all imparted with tragicomic pathos. Apart from the installation on the main exhibition room, the artist also installed a bar in the entrance hall of Schinkel Pavillon.

A place to meet friends and enjoy excellent food, there should be steak and fish on the menu, champagne and plenty of space. In the spring of 2007 Stephan Landwehr and Boris Radczun opened Grill Royal, which has been a hot spot in the gastronomic landscape of Berlin ever since.

The exhibition Talking Cities was part of the International Architecture and Design Forum ENTRY2006 at the World Heritage Site of Zeche Zollverein in Essen (the coal washing plant transformed by OMA), featuring innovative international design & architecture as a collective dialogue on reconfiguring and reactivating the marginal, residual and public spaces of our contemporary cities.
