Berlin clubs such as Bunker, Stattbad Wedding, Exit and Tresor (in its original location) all have one thing in common - they’re no longer open.
Now they’ve been pulled together to feature in a new limited-edition calendar created by Tine Fetz and Daniel Schneider. The calendar, called Places 2019: Berliner Cluborte der Vergangenheit features illustrations by Tine Fetz of a number of now closed Berlin clubs going back through the last three decades.
There are 250 copies on sale so don’t expect them to hang around for too long. If you want to get your hands on one - priced at €15 - you can do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re in Berlin, you can purchase one for yourself at the Archiv der Jugendkulturen which can be found at Fidicinstraße 3 in Kreuzberg.
A documentary on Berlin’s techno history, tracing the scene’s development since the fall of the Berlin Wall, can now be watched online.
Berlin’s ’90s techno club culture has also been put under the spotlight in a new exhibition at the city’s DDR Museum.
