Bei meiner Seele


A dark room, at the end a larger than life portrait of a person. The image glows from within, the stare pierces the shell of our humanity and makes its way into our core. The encounter is true and moving, as if we had really met vis-à-vis. ATMAN is a word from ancient Indian Sanskrit and means “soul”. It describes the immortal, true, individual self of a person. In the over 3,000-year-old Vedic scriptures, ATMAN is the divine spark within us, it’s what remains when we are totally centred, free of all illusiveness and aspiration. The state we try to reach with yoga, meditation, self-awareness exercises and diet. Bernd Kolb – visionary, mastermind and former director for innovation at Deutsche Telekom – deals with the great challenges of our global consumer society and possible approaches for a positive and sustainable future. He explored the question why, against better judgement, it is so difficult for us to think and act sustainably and found answers in the encounter with inspiring people who gave him an understanding of the wisdom of ancient Asian cultures. He captured these moments of knowledge and solidarity with his camera. His unusual photography lets us re-discover the inner abundance of humans, it is a visual and emotional experience at the same time. After the great success of his book, the ATMAN exhibition is opening tonight at the Malzfabrik Berlin. Bernd Kolb himself will be present at the vernissage, secretary for cultural affairs Tim Renner will be giving the laudatory speech. The exhibition will be open until September 30th and can only be visited in small, guided groups. Various talks turn the event into meditative and sensory experience that inevitably puts the focus on the visitor. As a special highlight, we will be giving that experience a sensory and culinary extension from September 15th to 30th with a GOLDEN DINNER meets ATMAN special. Following the exhibition, we will be lighting up a sea of candles in and around the exhibition area in the Fight Club of the Malzfabrik every evening, setting the scene for the sensual, the wonderful and the delicious and serving a thematically harmonised, top-class three course menu, spiced with musical delicacies. Tickets to the exhibition and the dinner can be ordered for 89 Euro at
