Meanwhile, in Berlin...

The BMW Guggenheim Lab will be there May 24 to July 29, 2012. According to ArtInfo:

The BMW Guggenheim Lab Berlin will be located in the Pfefferberg Complex in the Prenzlauer Berg neighborhood in the northeast of the city.

Housed in the same tent-like carbon-fiber structure that it was in New York, the Lab will host a similar array of lectures, exhibitions, and activities programmed by Guggenheim curator Maria Nicanor. The events will around the theme of "Confronting Comfort," which examines the conveniences and costs of urban living.

This is what the In York Pocket city guide has to say about the Prenzlauer Berg neighborhood: "The Berlin suburb that was once all punk is now mostly yuppie, but it remains where locals tend to party hard."

It'd be cool if a couple NYC rat stowaways snuck into the BMW Guggenheim Lab before they crated it up and shipped it to Berlin. Surprise!

I lived in the EV for the past 12 years. Two months ago I moved to Berlin. Before I took the subway to JFK I had a burger at Roberta's in this BMW extravaganza. funny thing. My office is in the very same complex in P'berg where they will mount this detachable contemplation about urban space.
