Up All Night: Looking Closely at Rave Culture

Location: 5th floor, Gallery of Contemporary Art 

A rave is an electronic dance music event. The impacts of rave culture have spread beyond the sphere of music and have reached visual culture in the form of different subcultural manifestations. The exhibition deals with this powerful phenomenon by displaying works from the Meccas of the heyday of rave, England and Belgium, and provides insight into rave culture today in the Berlin nightclub Berghain, as well as in many other locations.
