This new exhibition revisits 90s club culture in Berlin

Berlin's DDR Museum is throwing an exhibition on the city's cultural development post-fall the Berlin Wall.

Nineties Berlin obviously fers tourists a true window into the hedonist 1990s techno scene that made the German capital what it is today.

Within the exhibition is a 16-minute film showing when East and West Berliners crossed paths and stories recounting the overthrowing warehouses and factories in use for raving as the city's abandoned East state transformed into a thriving hub for music and art.

There's also a life-size mock-up the Berlin Wall and focus on the Love Parade movement, with samples anthems from the likes Westbam, Felix, D-shake, Kernkraft, Underworld, Faithless and Emmanuel Top.

Tobias Rapp, author the 2009 book Lost and Sound: Berlin, Techno und der Easyjetset, said: “East Berlin back then wasn’t some kind subcultural paradise. We had to fight.”
