The occult is all the rage these days – and millennials are at the forefront of the trend. We survey the scene, try astro-charting apps, meet a ghost hunter, an artsy tarot reader and a coffee fortune teller; have photographer Miron Zownir tell us about this issue’s devilish cover boy and our “Gay Berliner” rants about his friends going esoteric. Also in this issue: Why DHL delivery is such a mess, which Berlin books to put under the tree this year, interviews with the artist behind graphic novel(s) Berlin, McQueen director Ian Bonhôte and – as usual – much, much more!
