Club Culture - Creativity, Freedom, Passion. Excess, Politics and Club Culture

25 April 2018: fabric , 77A Charterhouse St, Farringdon, London EC1M 6HJ

A co production between Ourhistory Archives, Logic & fabric.

A one-off  exhibition celebrating the history of Club Culture. We teamed up with fabric and Logic Vapes to profile some of the most vibrant and exciting subcultures of the 20th and 21st centuries, from the 1970s Soviet Hippies movement through to the inception of Berlin techno in the early 90s and ongoing development of the UK’s rich club scene. Curated by Red Gallery founder Ernesto Leal, the exhibition will profile a series of global cultural phenomenons across all three rooms of our space, with archived photographs provided by ourhistory. The  exhibition featured eight key scenes charting the last 50 years of club culture:
