On the occasion of the 31st birthday of the Berlin club Tresor, the two-month exhibition and concert series Tresor 31: Techno, Berlin and the Great Freedom will take place in July and August of this year with a more than extensive program including concerts, parties, workshops and exhibitions on the entire premises, i.e. in the Kraftwerk, Tresor, OHM and Globus.
Techno, Berlin and the Big Freedom is a personalized, audio-based exhibition experience that takes place at Kraftwerk. Through films, sculptures, archival objects, and photographs, the exhibition explores the three-decade history that contextualizes techno’s “big bang” in early 1990s Berlin. Specific historical conditions created the external circumstances for the explosion of this movement in this place and time. The exhibition explores Tresor’s winding journey in context-from its prehistory in the unusual economic and social conditions of West Berlin to its transition into the cosmopolitan capital of today. Through archival materials and artworks, combined with a spatialized headphone audio system, Tresor 31’s exhibition explores the personal narratives that have underpinned techno culture since its inception as an artistic and social movement.
