Designing Club Culture
What does this magnificent volume from Vitra Museum’s ongoing Night Fever exhibition has to offer? For one, a luminous flashback into the frenzies of the last fifty years’ nocturnal living with rare insights into how the nightlife culture evolved hand-in-hand with design ideas. It starts with the years leading to the rise of disco, in a time the dance floor turned into a magnetic field for all types of creatives. Hovering through the allure of nightly melodies, lights, design and architecture, Night Fever profiles a superb list of clubs from the Italian Radial Design clubs and Manchester"s Hacienda, to studio 54 of Andy Warhol and the Ministry of Sound in London, showing some of the period’s promotional leaflets, party invitations, floor plans, vintage photographs and records, and many great stories about the wicked creatures of the night.

Wie die Populärkultur nach Deutschland kam

Wie die Populärkultur nach Deutschland kam

Christian Huck
Professor Christian Huck from the English Department of the Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel studies the roots of popular culture in Germany and the changes it has undergone throughout the 20th century until the present moment. From the power of saxophones and girls to TV series, penny journals, cocktails, breakdancing, jeans and computer games, Huck revisits the transatlantic exchanges of culture from an academic perspective, in a language understandable by the general German-speaking reader. Focusing on the enthusiasm behind appreciating particular trends of culture in Germany and the social, economic and technical circumstances that led to their spread, Huck argues that popular culture is able to suspend social differences allowing for moments of a generalized sense of social equality --until countering subcultural movements take place.
