NIGHT EMBASSY BERLIN 2019

Thank you
berlin

Once a tale of two cities, cut in half in the nineties the ultimate breeding ground for nightlife culture and more.

In 2019, the NIGHT EMBASSY BERLIN opened its doors and gave the keys to some of the most passionate creative talent you will ever see. For a period of three months, they turned our Kreuzberg space into one of the most exciting cultural experiences around town.

ONE
HELL
OF A RIDE

It all went by in the blink of an eye, but never will we forget the names of the Ambassadors of the Night tied to the inaugural edition of the NIGHT EMBASSY: CO:QUO x Digi-Gxl, Peripheral Intuitions, Ghost, I x No Start No End, PANSY, MOVE.UNLTD, Sweetest Taboo, Wemaisnone.

OPEN
TO ALL

Six Ambassadors of the Night, four special event series, and a day-to-night programme spanning over 100 events.

We are proud to have facilitated the exploration of new directions in Berlin nightlife throughout the project and provide space for ideas and creativity to blossom.

We want to thank you for being you and for being a part of us. We are still buzzing even though it has been a while since the space at the Falckensteinstraße closed it’s doors for the last time. Until we meet again on the dance-floor, we salute you!

Berlin nightlife is almost spiritual in many ways, a spirituality that thrives under nightfall.

Digi-Gxl

New technologies mean new horizons for art, music, and culture. CO:QUO x Digi-Gxl are breaking boundaries and exploring what it means to be human in rapidly changing virtual landscapes. 

Their NIGHT EMBASSY residency brought together two groups known for their work, which sparked future-forward discussions and aesthetics: Digi-Gxl is a global network of womxn, trans and non-binary creatives working in 3D animation and digital art; CO:QUO is a femme collective aiming to co-create and address status quos that have negative impacts on society through music, workshops, and discussions. Together, they’re upholding themes of diversity, inclusivity, and liminality in the visual and performing arts.

For two weeks, the NIGHT EMBASSY hosted their programme, which ranged from workshops and talks to club nights and live performances. The residency presented a safe space for cultivating communal knowledge and sharing experiences based on respect, sex-positivity and open-mindedness.

All
About

2019 saw the first edition of Jägermeister’s NIGHT EMBASSY, a residency programme featuring a cross-section of local creative talent everywhere it lands. Fittingly, the first instalment was held in Berlin, a stone’s throw from where the brand was first established as well as its main source of creative inspiration.

After uncovering some of the creative community's most visionary ideas for reinventing Berlin’s nightlife, six Ambassadors were chosen: CO:QUO x Digi-Gxl, Ghost, I x No Start No End, Peripheral Intuitions,  Pansy, MOVE.UNLTD, and Sweetest Taboo. The Ambassadors came from around the world and yet were united by a common love for the city’s nightlife. 

We gave them a blank canvas to explore their themes and ideas with the support of the NIGHT EMBASSY Creative Board, five renowned figures known for their contributions to Berlin’s club and music culture: Lutz Leichsenring, executive member of the Berlin Club Commission; music journalist Christine Kakaire; Dimitri Hegemann, Berlin club luminary and founder of Tresor; Linnea Palmestal, DJ, activist and founder of women’s, trans and non-binary collective No Shade; and Bernard Koomson, DJ and founder of artist collective deadHYPE.

On September 6th, the Ambassadors started their two-week residencies in our art and music space in the heart of Kreuzberg to explore new creative directions in nightlife through day-to-night programming including workshops, film screenings, performances, and parties of course.

https://youtu.be/qypU_yIrZzA

The idea for the NIGHT EMBASSY is based on Jägermeister’s nature of irreverent perfectionism as well as the freeform creativity of Berlin’s nightlife and art scene. It’s there for all bold thinkers who are committed to bringing daring ideas to life; concepts which highlight new possibilities in art affiliated with nightlife culture and which foster a strong sense of community. Through engaging lectures, hands-on workshops and expert guidance to help cultivate the Ambassadors’ career in the arts and onwards, the programme aims to provide inspiration, technical know-how and practical support to boost their creative practice.
