Go East

In 2019, photographer Sven Marquardt and electronic music artist Prurient started a collaboration called EAST—an audio-visual installation that combines imagery with musical language, accompanied by animated videos created by Pfadfinderei Collective.

The whole concept merges Marquardt’s photo series “East Side Girls”—shot in the early eighties in East Berlin—and the East Village area in New York City where Prurient’s label Hospital Productions is situated. In this way, old-school NYC punk and hardcore are melted with what was happening in Berlin in the years before the wall fell.

Over the period of several weeks, EAST was presented in a row of clubs all over Europe. For the events in Klub Tama (Poznan), Goa Club (Rome) and Berghain (Berlin), we were asked to transform Marquardt’s analog photos into a variety of animated visuals to complement the Pfadfinderei films. Due to the fact that the interior conditions in each club were different, we set up the visuals together with the technical managers on-site and supervised the events.
