Tucked away in the depths of the Salon Zur Wilden Renate beer garden lies the Peepshow, a glimpse into a ruby fantasy.
Between the currently closed club and the self-service bar stands the peepshow box, so unassuming, from afar that you could even miss it on any casual evening downing beers and having a smoke. Luckily, tonight you’re a bit more curious, and on a second glance, you notice little cutouts looking into the box, each with a small vagina plastered underneath and a sign that says “tip the slit.” Just before 20:30, a voice announces to the crowd over a megaphone that there are 2 tickets left for the 20:30 peepshow. Buy one. Buy the other for your friend if you have a spare five euros.
Wilden Renate’s Overmorrow is an immersive walkthrough art experience created by over 40 artists, from well-known collectives like Bad Bruises and TrashEra to newcomers. The installations, performances, and exhibitions occupy most of the indoor spaces of Wilde Renate, and offer about 1 hour of exploration in dark, morphing spaces.
The audience enters in groups of two, with 5-minute intervals, which is about the time allocated to each room, and makes their way through the 17 interwoven “Positions.” The Positions range from exhibitions of oil paintings through interactive installations to performances, and are loosely tied together by the themes of isolation and future. They often overlap, reflect on each other, and can be seen or heard in advance, which adds to the dreamlike nature of the journey.
OVERMORROW is an immersive walkthrough art experience that will soon open its doors at Wilde Renate. Over 40 artists from a wide variety of art-collectives like Bad Bruises and TrashEra have come together to create an insight into what our world could look like in the near future after the global pandemic. Utopia or dystopia. Where will our common path lead us?

Berlin is a place of unconventional ideas and I think that pretty much applies to all possible things, even something as traditional as a wedding. This beautiful new video by the wedding film makers Hearts on Tape shows a wild Mexican-style wedding taking place at the nightclub Wilde Renate. It looks absolutely beautiful and fun and unique and it’s totally how I imagine the cool folks of Berlin getting hitched. What it is is the new music video for the Moewe Remix of Moby’s new song Almost Home. Enjoy the beautiful video and some photos from the set of the film shooting by the talented wedding photographer Jule Müller (one half of the fabulous Im Gegenteil) after the jump.
You only know Berlin when you have seen it from a boat! How could you enjoy a party more than on a sunny day on a boat on the Spree? The Salon Zur Wilden Renate meanwhile is a constant institution within the current Berlin club culture. Once a year they do a party on a boat. The following video of the MS Renate, how the boat is called, was made on this year’s first of May and has just been released, guided by a nice remix of 80s band Talk Talk Talk’s song It’s my life. The line-up is Margaret Dygas, Peak & Swift and Samanta Fox of the Wilde Renate crew. Enjoy.
Last weekend we finally got the chance to check out the new location in Friedrichshain that we’ve been hearing so much about. It goes by the auspicious name of “Salon Zur Wilden Renate” and is located rather unfortunate at the border of Friedrichshain right at the Treptower bridge. Last time we tried to go there it was already pretty wild on the outside with people piling up in front of the door like they were selling bananas back in the good old GDR days. We gave up after nothing moved for half an hour. So that’s why we showed up pretty early last Saturday, and voila we came in pretty quickly. Read on to find out how it was and see some photos of the party.
Rolllll up, Rolllllll Up

Stop the further construction of the Berlin city highway.
Saturday. 02.09.2023. 02-19 pm. Markgrafendamm
Regardless of the global climate crisis, the Federal Ministry of Transport and its Autobahn GmbH are pushing the billion-dollar extension of the A100 city highway right through Friedrichshain and Lichtenberg. Apartments, open spaces as well as sub- and clubcultural places are to make way for it. We call on Berlin’s urban society to put a lasting and irrevocable end to this destructive project and to overturn the Federal Transport Plan and its numerous road construction projects.
Wreck all highways.
The dominance of the car and the power of the automobile companies is still unbroken in this country. Highways have always been a priority in Germany: For their construction, forests are cleared, allotments, green spaces and houses are demolished, otherwise untouchable property is expropriated – highways are the winning roads of fossil capitalism. The Berlin government, too, propagates the autoconformist city. The fact that the further construction of the A100 accelerates the destruction of natural resources and man-made climate change is irrelevant. In the affected neighborhoods, noise and emissions continue to rise, displacement and traffic collapse are the immediate consequences. The extension of the A100 would mean the end for more than twenty clubs and cultural venues; cultural open spaces, social projects and neighborhood communities that have grown over decades would be destroyed.
These prospects for the future are unacceptable to us. A climate-friendly city and a society of solidarity and social mobility can only be achieved against the autobahn and its supporters.
On Saturday, September 2, 2023, we declare the Markgrafendamm between Elsenbrücke to Ostkreuz a motorway-free zone. As a civil society alliance of neighborhood residents, climate activists and clubbers, we turn up the bass and invite you to a protest rave against the A100.
Environmental protection instead of car pollution.
