nineties berlin and dr. Motte are looking for videos and photos for the first special exhibition on the history of the Berlin Love Parade

nineties berlin, the multimedia exhibition about berlin's wild 90s, will open a new special exhibition "30 Years of loveparade " on July 1st, 2019. on the 30th anniversary of the mass phenomenon, the techno legend, inventor and father of the loveparade, dr. motte, will offer personal insights into the extraordinary history of the Berlin parades between 1989 and 2003, in whose realization and execution he played a decisive role. the special exhibition will be on display as part of the permanent exhibition nineties berlin until 31 january 2020.

in the summer of 1989, when 150 people danced together on the kurfürstendamm to the sounds of electronic music under the motto "peace, joy, pancakes" for a better world, they could not have guessed that only ten years later 1.5 million people would follow them. The special exhibition shows how the original demonstration of a youth culture once hidden in the underground developed into the global festival of a whole generation within a few years – in the middle of Berlin, a city that was just growing together.

the curators Michael geithner and dr. Motte are looking for videos and photos of participants from the love parade from the years 1989 to 2003 – whether analog or digital, whether as negative or on video cassette. nineties berlin is looking forward to the support of the "generation techno" and their personal time records. for a special installation in the special exhibition space, we are also looking for memorabilia and promotional items of the love parade (1989-2003).

in addition to the naming in the special exhibition, donors receive their videos and photos in digital form as a thank you and are invited to the vernissage on july 1st, 2019.
