About BLACK BOX:
The Polygon Gallery, a presenter of photography and media-based art, is collaborating with the Goethe-Institut, an institution with a mandate to promote to German culture abroad, to present a series of pop-up events in North Vancouver.
Featuring Sven Marquardt and Robert Lippok—active players in Berlin’s thriving music scene since before the fall of the Wall—these events are a part of Germany @ Canada 2017 – Partners from Immigration to Innovation, a program that celebrates German-Canadian friendship, and sheds light on Germany's historical contribution to Canada's cultural mosaic.
The first event, taking place on January 12 and titled Black Box, is a photography show and installation featuring the work of Sven Marquardt and the music of Marcel Dettmann.
Marquardt is best known as the notoriously discerning doorman at Berghain nightclub—the epicentre of Berlin’s vibrant dance music scene. Born in East Berlin, Marquardt has also been a defining part of the punk, new wave, and arts scene since the mid 1980s. His photography documents striking characters from Berlin’s evolving nightlife through major societal and cultural change. His style is classic, but the underlying content of his images merge past, present and future.
