The moment before everything is put back in order exists only for a short time. Giesemann and Schulz set themselves to document the temporary existence of techno clubs, because some close or change beyond recognition during time.
Many famous techno clubs are photographed in this body of work, and we see them in whole different light: not only as a place of hedonism and celebration but almost as an area where disaster has struck. The visitors who were present before left their rubble, and a spooky energy took hold of the club. The "Vom Bleiben" photographic series is printed on Ether plan, a concrete plate, that has an uneven surface. This gives the works far more depth and a three-dimensional structure.
André Giesemann and Daniel Schulz have never exhibited outside of Germany and this is their first solo show in a gallery.
