• Goethe-Institut welcomes the ‘Berlin Bouncer’

    Sven Marquardt

    Sven Marquardt

    Bouncer and photographer Sven Marquardt will grace the opening of an exhibition entitled Club Berlin which features photography and electronic music from the German capital.

    The exhibition highlights Berlin’s popular club culture with works of photographer Martin Eberle and Marquardt himself.

    Exhibit guests will also be treated to state-of-the-art sound installations with music from top Berlin-bred DJs like Modeselektor, Tale of Us and Answer Code Request. Designed to complement the photographs, the installation lets the guests listen clearly and separately to seven different DJs by simply moving from one small area of the exhibit to another.

    ‘Lord of the Night’
    The opening night will include an artist talk by Marquardt, who would talk about this photography and experience as long-time head doorman of the club Berghain.

    Tagged by many as the greatest techno club in the world, Berghain is a cavernous dance club occupying a former East Berlin power plant with a fierce reputation for being highly secretive and hard to get into. The club’s success led to an emphatic influence on Berlin’s clubbing scene and elevated Marquardt into a cult figure – the “lord of the night”, according to one domestic newspaper.

    Presented by the Philippinen (German Cultural Center), the exhibition opens on August 26 at the Pineapple Lab in Makati.

    Admission to Club Berlin is free. The opening starts at 6 p.m. followed by the artist talk by Marquardt at 7 p.m.
