As a global phenomenon, techno has not only shaped the history of music, but has also had a significant influence on culture. Techno's impulses have an impact on the various fields of art, pop culture, media consumption and technologies. Techno is thus an attitude towards life, that reflects on particular social, living- environment and economic structures and can also serve as a political medium. This exhibition realized by the collaboration of Goethe-Institut Budapest and aqb is a world premier: it can be seen in Budapest for the first time, and starting from here continues as a travelling exhibition of an international importance, showing the fault lines of art, music, pop, media and technology. The main focus is on works of art that explore the thematics between local and global, underground and mainstream, politics and commerce, proposing questions about commercialization, digitalization, experiences of body, space and creativity. In Germany, techno acted as a connecting element between East and West, and after the fall of the Berlin Wall gained particular importance. Berlin, which attracted attention in the 1990s with the Love Parade, developed into one of the most prominent capitals of techno music. The exhibition presents video installations, objects, pictures, sculptures, and involves a separate document section, beside the Project Space of aqb, it fills more rooms from the cellar and up. The exhibition alongside with the accompanying events provide an opportunity and a chance to reflect also on the local connections of art and techno.
