Berlin's Most Dreaded Bouncer Opens Show in Tbilisi
The face of Berghain turns out to have a soft side, too.
Art Stuff 14 Nov 2018

Sven MARQUARDT exhibition Tbilisi Khidi
There is hardly a club in the world better known than the Berghain, Berlin. During Germany`s post-reunification period, a large scene for techno music had formed in Berlin. Tresor or Watergate also helped to make Berlin the center of techno music.
During Germany’s post-reunification period, a large scene for techno music had formed in Berlin.
Tresor or Watergate also helped to make Berlin the center of techno music. Today the Berghain rules the scene and the famous dark back rooms add to its myth, same as Sven Marquardt the dreadful bouncer who decides about your future while you patiently wait in the queue.
What most of us don’t know, is that Marquardt, born in East Berlin in 1962, was trained as a photographer and worked as camera man as well as for the legendary fashion magazine Sibylle. Gradually, Marquardt became the face of the club and it is being said that Berghain has the hardest door in the world.
In the 2000s, Sven Marquardt returned to the camera to help taking images of DJ`s for their covers and communication material. Gradually, more and more portraits of famous or not-well-known personalities were created. And the first exhibitions with photographs by Sven Marquardt were organized.

He is joined by revered experimental musician Prurient – AKA Vatican Shadow – who will be delivering several live performances throughout the residency. The exhibition also features visual work from Berlin artist, Pfadfinderei.
