TROUBLE MAKERS is the opening night of the Trouble Making – Who’s Making the City? exhibition, an investigation into mass phenomena and virtual networks that are changing our minds and our cities, edited by Raumplan.
For the night, Threes presents Gabber Elegance, “The Hakke Show”.
Started in 2011 as a web archive, the Gabber Elegance project starts from a survey on the gabber aesthetic and the post-rave culture that developed in the early 90s on the edge of the cities of Northern Europe – in particular around the containers of the port of Rotterdam – in response to the tunes of Detroit techno, born in the mid-80s among the abandoned buildings of the Motor City.
from 9pm to 1pm
