In this issue, Exberliner looks back at 2022 in culture, and forward to 2023. Our critics and experts hand-pick the past year’s tops and flops in music, film, art, stage, books, food and politics – and give our tips for the next. And, with the World Cup kicking off, we meet Berlin’s die-hard football fanatics, foosball champions, and female pioneers. Plus: a deep-dive into the forgotten subculture of Turkish Gastarbeiter rock, a long-awaited interview with Aftersun director Charlotte Wells, René Pollesch on show-off theatre… and our Berlin Christmas gift guide! 68 pages of warming reads to get you through the winter months.
