terror attack Berlin 19th december 2016
filed under mix

 

to hear non-stop the sirens of police and ambulance cars pasing the street close to my flat and to know where they drive ... is very sad and brings tears in my eyes. this terrible tragedy happened very close to the place where I live. almost everyone of my neighbours go to that christmas market and some of my friends live literaly next to the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church.
In some minutes I will go to my nightjob in a hotel ... which is located here around the corner. it looks like that I will talk the whole night with tourists who stay in that hotel and came here to Berlin to have a good time and are now confronted with that terrible tragedy :(
in deep mourning to all people who died there. R.I.P.

day four after the terror attack in Berlin:

*Quarkbällchen*
(<= a sweet speciality which people eat a lot on christmas markets.)

today I met with a friend inside of KaDeWe. after I walked alone to the Breitscheitplatz. I go there almost every week, because I life close to it since about 12 years. and that much long I go to that christmas market. Each year ... at least one time I eat some Quarkbällchen ... always at the same stall. This one in the corner next to the street. but this year three huge cement blocks stood there instead. the stall with my most delicious Quarkbällchen must have been the first target which got hit by that black tons heavy truck.

I went to the stall some meters away and ordered there five Quarkbällchen. while ordering I said to her "I come here every year to eat my Quarkbällchen" and pointed with my finger to other side. Almost I started to cry. I´m sure that this woman saw a lot of people crying during the past days and perhaps she was even there when the truck crashed into that beauiful christmas market.
I went around the corner, because I didn´t want other people see me with tears in my eyes. When I started to eat ... I realized that she put seven Quarkbällchen in my little paper bag.

stories mix posted on facebook:

14th dec: diaries

did you ever wonder why I write thaaaat much here on fb!?

it´s because I write here my diary. already as teenager I wrote diaries sometimes, but stopped it in the age of 19 because I didn´t expect something exciting happening in my life.
Here on facebook it is a loooot of fun to write my diary. of course I save it all extra (for example on my website www.thisismyartlife.com ) . I write it because I love to write it ... and why not publishing it ... in real time ... while writing it. of course I will use parts of it for my new book "the story of Master Patrick", but perhaps there will exist ... one day ... an own book of my diaries. and if you belong to my followers here, then you read it already before :)
and yes! I also like the fact that other famous artists wrote diaries too which got published, such as: Virgina Woolf, Kurt Cobain, Ernest Hemingway, Franz Kafka, Jack Kerouac, ...

14th dec: ** * *** pls get your for free Patrick Bartsch christmas present painting * *** **

14th dec: *Tratsch&Klatsch Schönebergmäsisch*

hier im Krawallkiez Schöneberg ... genau: Eisenacher Str./Fuggerstraße ... wird zur zeit Polizeimäsisch ordentlich aufgeräumt. es wurden Flyer über Taschendiebe an ansässige Lokalitäten verteilt. Sogar beim U-Bahnhof Nollendorfplatz kleben große "Achtung Taschendiebe"-Aufkleber auf dem Boden. und bei meinem Balkon fährt zur Zeit etwa 40 mal pro Tag/Nacht die Polizei vorbei und dabei wohl etwa 5 mal mit Sirene und Blaulicht. Früher waren es maximal ein- bis zweimal pro Tag/Nacht.
Da hat der Aufschrei von Nelly und Sally Morell doch etwas gebracht*

15th dec: *advent calendar 2016 in oil on canvas* * 15 * <3 MICHAEL <3 two wonderful in my family, about five awesome in my whole life and of course magic Michael Jackson* without pointing out one special ... pls let me just write FOREVER <3 MICHAEL <3

15th dec: actually I talk about everything ...
... but never about my life ...
... because this is a secret.

16th dec: *advent calendar 2016 in oil on canvas* * 16 * <3 ISA <3 she gave me that inner strength for going on with my way ... with my art ... by saying, while looking at my art in my studio: "I like that and I don´t say many times that I like something!". to meet an icon and genius such as Isa Genzken for about 10 years has been one of the greatest things happening to me while living and working in Berlin <3 ISA <3

17th dec: *advent calendar 2016 in oil on canvas* * 17 * <3 KIM & JOE <3 "I like the maskman!" shouted Joe in my direction when he saw me the first time. I adore Joe since I know about his existence. When icons, superstars such as Tilda Swinton, Nina Hagen, R.E.M.´s Michael Stipe, ... and Joe Dallesandro gave me the feeling that they like my creativity, ... then ... things happened inside of me ... which I´m not able to describe in words right now. With Joe´s wonderful wife Kim Dallesandro even a friendship grew up during the past years. they are wonderful and teach me every day that the most important thing is having a good heart, being able to share and love <3 Thank You for that <3 KIM & JOE <3

17th dec: question: "what is with your book!?"
answer: "at the end of the year I stop working. I do it every year that way, because I´m very sensitive for those christmas days/nights and I´m not able to concentrate in december. I will finish some minimalistic paintings this year and that´s it. new portaits paintings, other paintings, book work, ... all is planed to happen again in 2017*

18th dec: ^^Home^^ is the name of a new masterpiece by Matt Lambert <3 ... aaaand right! almost never I use the word "masterpiece" ... but this one is one! pls find it and check it out by yourself* just STUNNING that fabulous new book* loooove it <3

18th dec: *advent calendar 2016 in oil on canvas* * 18 * <3 MARIA <3 one grandmother and one grandfather died before I was born. the other grandfather was an unknown french soldier ... who entered to Germany ... in the black forrest in 1945 ... where he met my grandmother Maria. I know nothing about him and have only a handful of memories of her, because she died when I was 9 y.o. . All my live I was attracted to older people, because I missed it to have grandparents to touch and to talk to. in the age of 10 and 11 ... I built myself up ... up to five "grandmothers" at the same time. the one who loved me most ... perhaps because she had no children and grand children by her own ... was the foster-mother of my mother. her name was Maria too* she did everything for me and gave me all her love. she died some years ago too. her favorite color was orange. <3 MARIA <3

18th dec: *dädä dädä bäbä* Judy Garland is much better than Marilyn Monroe! *dädä dädä bäbä* Judy Garland is the real number one!

how could America and the world ... dare NOT to celebrate Judy Garland as the REAL QUEEN <3 I mean look the views on youtube <= it´s a shame!

it was because of Judy Garland´s birthday why Christopher Streetday started. It was on HER´s birthday when the queers in the Stoneball didn´t want get interupted by police ... celebrating JUDY GARLAND´s birthday :*

in this century we should put the crown on the head where it belongs to ... and put Judy Garland on that Queen chair which always did belong to her <3 :*

19th dec: *advent calendar 2016 in oil on canvas* * 19 * <3 ROSA <3 we met eachother when I needed someone like him the most in my living years in Berlin* Rosa von Praunheim believed in me and worked with me together while my beginner years in Berlin* always in my heart <3 ROSA <3

19th dec: what a terrible tragedy in Berlin :( it´s so sad :(

19th dec: to hear non-stop the sirens of police and ambulance cars pasing the street close to my flat and to know where they drive ... is very sad and brings tears in my eyes. this terrible tragedy happened very close to the place where I live. almost everyone of my neighbours go to that christmas market and some of my friends live literaly next to the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church.
In some minutes I will go to my nightjob in a hotel ... which is located here around the corner. it looks like that I will talk the whole night with tourists who stay in that hotel and came here to Berlin to have a good time and are now confronted with that terrible tragedy :(
in deep mourning to all people who died there. R.I.P.

19th dec: at least one of my friends has been directly there during that terrible tragedy and saw people without legs and a severed head. this all is that much terrible that I don´t know how to handle it right now ... I was never in my life confronted with something like that.

once I came to Berlin for the reason to live here in peace.

in deep mourning to all people who died there R.I.P.

20th dec: Patrick´s inner thoughts:
it´s tuesday night 2.10 a.m. ... some hours ago a terrible tragedy happened in Berlin. I´m not able to sleep, because I´m at work right now. in a hotel close to the place where the truck dashed into a christmas market. I listen to guests who talk about their fears. they asked me if the airport is open. another guest told me, that he leaves Berlin tomorrow, because he was close to the tragedy and saw "people with open wounds" ... how he described it with his own words.
people around me are in shock ... and so am I too. I´m not able to realize that tragedy which happened that much close to me.
right now I´m not interessted to watch something else in television here in the hotel. I can´t think about it to watch a movie, a serie, or something else. I watch non-stop n-tv and the latest news about the tragedy. now they said that the number of dead people grew from nine to 12.

it´s in the middle of the night. the internet doesn´t sleep. I read your postings and your stories about Berlin and that tragedy. even someone posted a video which shows those dead people laying on the street. a video which hasn´t been shown in television. I watched it, because it helps me to understand a little bit and to react, when I have to talk with people in shock right now who are coming directly from there.

It´s terrible what happened in the city of love and I have the feeling that the german politics sleeps right now ... and that gives me a bad feeling, because "they" give space to let rumours grow. I have the feeling that german politicans haven´t realized, that we live in the 21st century and that sometimes it needs more ... than just to wait till the next day ... to react.

20th dec: *advent calendar 2016 in oil on canvas* * 20 * my todays painting stands for all victims of yesterday evening´s terrible tragedy. R.I.P. "BERLIN written ... in the fading dark color prussian blue."

20th dec: Life goes on ... in Berlin <3 ... and in four days there will be christmas* ... which needs christmas presents <3 ... in one hour starts fab Matt Lambert´s book signing :* see you there <3

21st dec: *advent calendar 2016 in oil on canvas* * 21 * <3 SVEN <3 my family <3 my cousin <3 those people I grew up together with <3 they mean eeeeeverything to me* ... even when I haven´t seen them and talk to them ... for about 25 years* I love all of them <3

21st dec: two days after that terrible terror attack in Berlin:

perhaps I´m wrong ... but I have the feeling that this attack brought us all closer together. yesterday and today ... looking in faces of strangers in the underground, on the street, in shops, ... we all know that it could have been eachone of us who could have been killed by that black tons of weight heavy truck.
perhaps I´m wrong ... but I have the feeling that we realized after that terror attack, that it makes no sense to fight against eachother.
perhaps I´m wrong ... but we all sit in the same boot ... share the same city: old&young, believers&unbelievers, Berlin born people&refugees, straights&queers, men&women, ...
perhaps I´m wrong ... but I have the feeling that we all realized, that ... better than to hate eachother ... is to love eachother.

those words are just my feelings ... and I think they are not wrong ... they are right.

<3

21st dec: so far 493 of my facebook friends marked themselves as "safe during the attack in Berlin" ... and I´m happy about <3 eachone <3 who has been able to use that facebook function*

*Quarkbällchen*
(<= a sweet speciality which people eat a lot on christmas markets.)
today I met with a friend inside of KaDeWe. after I walked alone to the Breitscheitplatz. I go there almost every week, because I life close to it since about 12 years. and that much long I go to that christmas market. Each year ... at least one time I eat some Quarkbällchen ... always at the same stall.

Breisgau managed that birth. LOVE MY MOM <3 ... and yes! that veeeeery bright blue is my moms most favorite color <3 EDITH <3
