ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:

Sven Marquardt's black-and-white portraits document former East Berlin's Prenzlauer Berg scene of the late 1980s and the evolving techno culture after the fall of the Berlin wall until today.

For the first time, Sven Marquardt's large-scale photo exhibition "Rudel" will be shown along with the audiovisual installation "Black Box".

"Rudel" is an exhibition that consists of large-scale portraits, which combine formal severity and clear imagery with bleak impermanence. They impress through interaction of ease, severity and the dramatic art of monochrome contrasting. The ever-changing metropolis of Berlin has shaped Marquardt's sensibility for striking characters, his sense for the unusual in humanity and his artistic subject.

"Black Box" is an audiovisual installation, which combines Sven Marquardt's black-and-white portraits with the rough, dark and intense techno sound of Marcel Dettmann, a German producer and DJ of the techno club Berghain. The two artists met for the first time at the legendary Ostgut club in the late 1990s but it was only in 2014 that they decided to combine their artistic talents and created Black Box.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Sven Marquardt started his photographic career in the beginning of the 1980s as a part of the emerging Punk, New Wave and Art scene in the Prenzlauer Berg neighborhood of East-Berlin. After the fall of the Berlin Wall he immersed himself in the city’s rising nightlife scene. Soon he became an iconic face through his work as the bouncer of Berghain
