Some recommendations from Jupiter Woods’s Cory Scozzari

A good lunch can be as hard to find as a great artwork. The gallery owner Gregor Staiger knows where to go. He recommends the best socialist breakfast, a very old restaurant, the paradessence of Swiss food and a few places to explore the very famous Badi (bathing) culture. Plus: he is also hosting a bar with the gallery's neighbours during the opening of Manifesta.

Gallery Weekend Berlin kicks off this Friday. Spike scoured the 54 participating galleries to bring you five exhibitions that we are looking forward to seeing.
