Tresor club, Red Gallery, ourhistory Archives and British Council Germany presenting
CLUB CULTURE EXHIBITION
1 Collective History.
6 Cultural Movement.
Berlin’s Tresor with its cultural heritage is the perfect location to exhibit these archives, the tresor space as an experience opened up to all and allowing those who have never visited the club to experience the space in a different context. The 4 hour event/ exhibition subverts the standard gallery format to create a lasting memory and a platform for discussion. The audience is encouraged to take pictures, share and engage.
Featuring carefully selected content from the past 15 years of exhibitions, the Red Gallery’s Ourhistory Archives boast exclusive and rarely seen photographs of some of Europe's most exciting club cultural movements - from the inception of Tresor and Berlin techno in the 90's, to Parisian ‘French Touch’ and Spain's La Movida Madrileña. For the first time in Berlin, these works will be displayed and curated as one whole inter-connected history.
Individually the photographs from each of these movements tell an amazing story of their own, but when these archives are put together these images begin to narrate a whole new collective history.
Without negating the role of the DJ, these photographs show the importance of the every-day people that participated in these events at bunkers, factories, rooftops, afterhours and beyond. As a viewer, you immediately understand the energy that these photographs capture.
The exhibitions act as a platform to bring together artists, photographers, promoters, adventure-seekers, dreamers and revolutionaries in a collective celebration of music, art and culture.
