The Contemporary Document of Berlin Techno Culture. The series NACHTS by the renowned photographer and Berghain bouncer Mischa Fanghaenel showcases contemporary portraits of personalities from the Berlin techno scene also in an NFT series. 


NACHTS, presented by photographer and Berghain Bouncer Mischa Fanghaenel, is a unique experience that captures and carries forward the spirit of Berlin's club culture. 


Following the successful event at the Centre Pompidou in Paris in December, and the Launch during Berlin Art Week in September 2023, it's time for NACHTS to conquer more cities. Next up is London, and it's happening at a secret location from 4pm-4am, on April 12th & 13th, 2024. Tickets are very limited and are sold on Resident Advisor (see link below).


NACHTS is curated for a discerning audience that transcends traditional art circles. This exhibition is a must-attend for those with a passion for art and photography, as well as individuals deeply embedded in the techno community. NACHTS offers a unique, multisensory experience that bridges the gap between visual art and electronic music, making it an unparalleled event.



The event will feature an exhibition of Mischa Fanghaenel's works, accompanied by an exclusive party with top-tier DJs headlining the night.


NIGHT 1 (April 12th) // DVS1

DVS1, which stands for Devious One, hails from Minneapolis. With releases for Derrick May and Ben Klock, DVS1 has become an indispensable part of the techno scene. His sound, rooted in the honest rave culture of the American Midwest, is characterized by fast techno beats and gigantic speaker walls.


NIGHT 2 (April 13th) // Answer Code Request

Answer Code Request, also known as Patrick Gräser, is a Berlin techno star known for his uncompromising approach to music. His rise from anonymity to becoming one of the most unique DJs, producers, and live acts worldwide is well-documented. Patrick's belief in making quality and innovative music has led him to challenge the conventional 4/4 format of techno, incorporating broken beats and breakbeats into his sets.




This event is happening on April 12th & 13th, 2024, at a secret location in the Camden district. Immerse yourself in the essence of Berlin’s techno culture with some of the most relevant personalities of the scene.

ABOUT MISCHA FANGHAENEL:

Mischa Fanghaenel is a photographer based in Berlin, born in Moscow and raised in East Berlin as the son of two  architects. After discontinuing his training as a fashion photographer in 1999, Fanghaenel shifted his focus from portrait photography to abstract photography. During this phase, he developed a unique photographic technique influenced by impressionist painting and constructivist photography.


Since 2000, Mischa Fanghaenel has balanced his role as a bouncer in Berlin's vibrant nightlife with his passion for photography. As Mischa himself states: "The balance between being a bouncer and photography has always been there. While bouncer work is loud and filled with many people, photography represents my more reserved side - alone and calm. The connecting element between these two worlds has always been the night for me." When he began his role as a bouncer at the famous Berghain in 2010, photography took a backseat but remained a central part of his life. Over the course of his career, he has portrayed notable personalities from the music world, including Wolfgang Wagner, Pierre Boulez, and Christian Thielemann.
