Der Klang der Familie

Kling

Die schönste Hölle der Welt
(von Jens Balzer in der Berliner Zeitung)

Tout Berlin war am Donnerstagabend in den Kater Holzig gekommen, um der Premiere des pophistorischen Monumentalwerks „Der Klang der Familie“ beizuwohnen; im Konzertsaal des Clubs drängten sich Massen von Menschen, um den Autoren Felix Denk und Sven von Thülen beim Vorlesen zuzuhören. „Berlin, Techno und die Wende“ lautet der Untertitel ihres Buchs, es geht um die Entstehung der hiesigen Techno-Kultur von etwa 1987 bis Mitte der 1990er-Jahre: der „Soundtrack des Ausnahmezustands nach der Wende“, wie es die Autoren im Vorwort formulieren; und vor allem natürlich: die erste gesamtdeutsche Jugendkultur. Fast hundert Protagonisten aus jener Zeit haben von Thülen und Denk interviewt und die Gespräche dann in kleinen Schnipseln zu einer Oral History des Techno montiert. Tresor-Gründer Dimitri Hegemann und Loveparade-Erfinder Dr. Motte kommen ebenso zu Wort wie die damals wichtigsten DJs: Wolle XDP, Tanith, Clé, Jonzon, Terrible. Aber auch Barfrauen, Türsteher, Labelmacher, Radio- und Magazinjournalisten. Die Kapitel heißen „Anale Randale“, „Der Osten hört mit“ oder „Die schönste Hölle der Welt“...weiterlesen: Berliner Zeitung

Garage No. 2 Magazine

With imagery influenced by the art of classic fairy tales & nursery rhymes, our cover stages a wedding between Harry The Hare (with child) and Frederic The Fox. Inspired by Homosexual Wedding (1968), a happening staged by legendary artist Yayoi Kusama (who is also profiled within), the second issue of GARAGE explores the contemporary state of sex and relationships.

From Mat Collishaw's infectious flowers to Walter Pfeiffer's interpretation of the Handkerchief Code and Adriana Varajeo's look under the sea....No 2 has a collection of stories you can't miss!

Inventory Books 03: The Electric Information Age Book

Inventory Books is a platform for the synthesis of textual and visual research on transformations in urban spaces and culture. Edited by Adam Michaels and published by Princeton Architectural Press, the series presents rigorous content in an accessible format for a diverse public. Inventory Books are designed by Project Projects.

The Electric Information Age Book (Inventory Books 03) explores the nine-year window of mass-market publishing in the sixties and seventies when formerly backstage players—designers, graphic artists, editors—stepped into the spotlight to produce a series of exceptional books. Aimed squarely at the young media-savvy consumers of the “Electronic Information Age,” these small, inexpensive paperbacks aimed to bring the ideas of contemporary thinkers like Marshall McLuhan, R. Buckminster Fuller, Herman Kahn, and Carl Sagan to the masses. Graphic designers such as Quentin Fiore (The Medium is the Massage, 1967) employed a variety of radical techniques—verbal visual collages and other typographic pyrotechnics—that were as important to the content as the text. The Electric Information Age Book is the first book-length history of this brief yet highly influential publishing phenomenon.
