It is widely known for its progressive techno nights that go on from Saturday to Monday, but this is not the only thing that Berghain is doing. They have always used their space for much more than just music. They recently released a book about their engagement with art and also the theater and performance world has had its collaborations with this cathedral of techno.

This Thursday another big art event is happening there opening the doors to an audience that goes beyond the usual party crowd on weekends. Turn Around Bright Eyes is the title of the event, borrowed from the lyrics of Bonnie Tylers Total Eclipse of the Heart. One of the main artists contributing to the night is Peaches who is giving her own rendition of the iconic song as a music video premiere. There will be quite a few more video presentations from artists such as Actually Huizenga, Boris Eldagsen, Jamie Harley, Natacha Mankowski and Valquire Veljkovic. But you will also be able to see physical art from Dorit Bialer, Kritzkom + Romain Frequency, Lisa Wassmann, Marianne Jacquet and Martin Müller, as well as live performances by Hyenaz, Koudlam and Peter Kirn. It’s going to be an immersive experience bringing you an eclectic mix of talents from Berlin.

The event is curated by Your Mom who also put up great shows in the past in venues such as the Konzulàt and Kaufhaus Jandorf. Having seen some of these previous events I can guarantee you that you don’t want to miss it, also because it’s one of the rare occasions you can see Berghain during the week and separate from its techno parties. Some previews with work of the artists after the jump.
