A brand new and unique exhibition has opened in the Brussels Design Museum ADAM. "Night Fever. Designing Club Culture 1960 – Today" offers the first large-scale examination of the relationship between club culture and design.
The exhibition presents nightclubs as spaces that merge architecture and interior design with sound, light, fashion, graphics, and visual effects to create a modern Gesamtkunstwerk. Examples range from Italian clubs of the 1960s created by the protagonists of Radical Design to the legendary Studio 54 where Andy Warhol was a regular, from the Haçienda in Manchester designed by Ben Kelly to more recent concepts by the OMA architecture studio for the Ministry of Sound in London.
Belgium is also well represented, with references to New Beat, Walter Van Beirendonck, Horst Festival, Jean-Claude Maury and Despacio by Soulwax.
Open until 05/05/2019.
