until 24.11. | #2156ARTatBerlin | Galerie Deschler presents from 19th September 2018 the solo exhibition PACK by the artist Sven Marquardt.
At Galerie Deschler, Sven Marquardt will for the first time present his new project PACK, a series of portraits of musicians from the international Electro scene, captured in black-and-white analogue photography. The project will be accompanied by an audio-visual installation featuring a sound loup mixed specifically for this event by Marcel Dettmann
Sven Marquardt, who had been trained as a fashion photographer, started portraying the East-Berlin art and gay scene in expressive black-and-white photography as early as the 1980s. After a creative break following the German reunification he resumed this work in 2000. Since then he has established international reputation with exhibitions, publications, and collaborations with fashion labels such as Hugo Boss and Levi’s, as well as with the German Goethe Institut. With his distinctive appearance and as a doorman of the famous Berghain club Marquardt has furthermore become widely known beyond Berlin as a symbol of the city.
PACK, a mixture of commissioned and free works, is the second project in this context after the Bouncers (Rudel).
