FLYER – DIN long – Mai 2012
Fund-raiser party for the group TOP B3rlin at the club Panke in Berlin-Wedding
Image idea: The background picture consists of two hands, one formed to a fist, the other one crossing the fingers to form a W, which stands for the most multicultural district of Berlin called Wedding. This W-hand gesture is a code used on the streets by young people to signalise they are living in this district. The fist refers to the history of the district of Wedding, which is well known as the ‘Red Wedding‘ due to its former high rate of poor socialists and communist workers. They used to live in Wedding especially between the 1920-1930ies and engaged in violent mass street struggles trying to resist brutal Nazi troops. The combination of the two hands illustrates the development of the district Wedding and meets the concept of the fund-raiser party, which was introduced by a presentation about the history of the worker‘s district. The life performances and the DJs represented contemporary music from punk pop to rap and hip hop.
