He is known to many as the bouncer at the legendary Berlin techno club Berghain, but now the focus is on Sven Marquardt’s photographic work. The tattooed giant has been capturing his surroundings with a camera since the 1980s, documenting both freethinkers of the GDR subculture and modern figures of Berlin nightlife in his photographs. Until late May, the Goethe-Institut Lyon will be showing his exhibition Future’s Past, which ends, of course, with a club night.
