Kae, 來自台北，台灣，住在柏林接近兩年了。目前是念柏林自由大學的碩士課程Arts and Media Administration(藝術媒體行政)。
Kae comes from Taipei, Taiwan. She lives in Berlin for almost 2 years, now she studies the master degree of Arts and Media Administration in Freie University.
WHY YOU CHOOSE BERLIN?
The first time I came to Berlin is because a business trip to Germany, and then I went to Berlin for a week, I felt, this is the place I want to live. Therefore, I came here with working holiday visa for a year, and I do love this place, so I only applied to the schools in Berlin.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE IN BERLIN?
Berlin welcomes young people, young people can do a lot of things, can try different things if they want. People gather together to organize music, art, or culture activities, and many of them are free! So that people can try without fear, and they can join many groups if they want, to exchange the experiences with others. The space for people to find or build their own dream is big enough, and there are no that many limitations. Besides, there are many platform for young artists and designers to share and show their ideas, I found it really great! As I was in Taiwan, I once join a Design workshop at Boisbuchet which held by Xuexue, it is an international workshop, and it’s just awesome that you can work with the real master who is famous in the world and other people who come from all over the world! It would be nice if there are more platform like Xuexue in Taiwan, to provide a way to broaden one’s sight.
IS THERE ANY PLACE YOU WILL RECOMMEND?
一般都是跟朋友出去，所以沒有特別固定的地方。如果是去派對的話，音樂好聽很重要，柏林在電子樂這方面還滿不錯的，例如Farbfernseher(a club)的音樂就很不錯！ Beach61這裡可以打沙灘排球！
I always go out with friends, so there are too many to tell. But for me, it’s really important to have a nice music in parties, and Berlin is quite good for people who likes electronic music, for example, Farbfernseher(a club) has nice music! You can play beach-volleyball here in Beach61 !
YOU HAVE STUDIED THE DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH LANGUAGE IN UNIVERSITY, DOES IT MAKE ANY EFFECT TO YOUR WORK OR THE LIFE NOW?
English is my advantage, but only that is not enough, you still need some other talent to tell the differences from others. I did part-time job as a Sales Assistant while studying in university, and from that job I learned how to speak with others and to start a conversation. After graduation, I worked in unlike jobs, such as Sales or PR(public relations）, but there is something in common, I keep connecting with people and art, and I always like art, in fact, as I was in senior high school, I want to be an artist.
Arts and Media Administration, IT SOUNDS REALLY ROUGH, DOES IT AIM TO ANY SPECIFIC AREA OF ART?
Basically, no. We are 25 persons in class, everyone has different background and talent, comes from different country and has one’s own culture. Our class is practical and interesting, we will go to see the exhibitions, and then discuss: if I am the organizer, what and how will I do? Then you will find out that the common element from everyone is obvious the most important part of the exhibition. But whatever the type of art it is, there is something to do with culture, that’s why the varietes of culture is so interesting. We have many class about how to realize it in real as well, like how to find sponsors and the law class.
I always like to hear people tell their own story, say why they made this decision and what happened after that, sometimes when you look back, you will get the power that you might already forget to face the future, and I always believe, all the things that you've done before will be useful in one day you don't know, but it's for sure.
聽了很多，感受到熱情，對生活，對工作，對未來，謝謝你，Kae!I heard a lot, about passion, life, work, and future, thank you, Kae!
