Museum

Nightclubs and discothèques are hotbeds of contemporary culture. Since the 20th century, they have been centers of the avant-garde that question the established codes of social life and experiment with different realities, merging interior and furniture design, graphics and art with sound, light, fashion and special effects to create a modern Gesamtkunstwerk. »Night Fever – Designing Club Culture 1960 – Today« examines the history of the nightclub, with examples ranging from Italian nightclubs of the 1960s that were created by members of the Radical Design group to Andy Warhol’s legendary Studio 54 in New York (1977–1980), Philippe Starck’s Les Bains Douches in Paris (1978) or the more recent Double Club in London, conceived by German artist Carsten Höller for the Prada Foundation. Featuring films and vintage photographs, posters and fashion, the exhibition also comprises a number of light interiors and sound installations that will take the visitor on a fascinating journey through a world of glamour, subculture, and the search for the night that never ends. 

Opening: 16.03.2018, 6 pm
