acid lemon taste that turns their sexual drive on.

DESCRIPTION

A 2 year visual communication project named TEKNO, defining the monthly image of one of the most significant electronic music project of Berlin. A Photo-shoot designed to make an impression in the local scene and mark an international territory. Through queer inclusiveness, a surrealistic take on the location’s perspective and alternative landscapes created a very contemporary ritualistic look.

PROJECT

Known by their techno nights at Suicide Circus, Rituals has significant impact on Berlin’s local scene - vibrating the sounds of the city, and echoing to the world.
The Trash contribution to this endeavour was both music and image, grasping a more unexpected side of the feeling of partying – the total liberation of being!

DURATION

2017-2018

DESCRIPTION

Developing the club’s own events communication for over an year, being focused on their KLUBNACHT parties, a classic of the Berliner nightlife. Utilizing of transmorphing photography with a hint of art. The rather lisergic looks of artworks set a new tone for the club’s image communication. A very unique take on photography.

PROJECT

Known by their successful open air parties, IPSE is one of the most cozy and beautiful places to be in Summer in the city of Berlin. Offering as well an option of a warehouse-looking techno floor, the club floats between house and techno. Klubnachts are normally the most important and classic nights, a tradition in the local scene. Located on the banks of the Spree, its location is a touristic must-go in the heart of Kreuzberg, cultural center in the middle of the now reunified city, known around the world for its alternative scene and counterculture.

DESCRIPTION

Following the idea of collaboration, deepening layers, the trash collective - after all efforts to make themselves comfortable at ‘home’ - finally had the opportunity to work in a different level within the club’s relationship. The perfect occasion for it happened to be creating a poster - an acidic slap in da society’s face, with a loud queer statement of acceptance - for a monthly communication action, precisely November 2018.

PROJECT

Partners since November 2017, TrashEra has found at Renate a place to call home. A great supporter of the trash community, the club opened itself to a more queer approach and with an impeccable welcoming attitude, conquered the hearts of many. Strolling through the corridors of the salons of Wilde Renate, the event take over every little corner, transforming the spaces in surrealistic realities. Music and Art dissolving into puddles of sweat and genderless love. Whenever it happens it provokes sighs and chills under the skin of the condemned souls of the humankind.

DESCRIPTION

After the success of the first endeavour, a beautiful affair started and it feels like will last very long. For March 2019, a complementary artwork - created to promote the collective’s 4th Anniversary at the club - was requested to be portrayed in the club’s monthly communications, once more..this time a very special take on the concept of Shadows, utilizing a very distinct lightning, the imagery must be considered a exquisite representation of terror-drama and trash.

DESCRIPTION

As a creative agency we provided a video-promo material and event photos for the first edition of the Festival, back in 2017. The shooting happened at the first event’s location, Bergheider See, Lichterfeld-Schacksdorf. The work executed includes co-production, models, video-artist and editing. A multi-faceted colorful queer collaboration.

On the side of photography, a compilation of the best moments of the Festival was provided in digital format.

PROJECT

A three day Electronic Music Camping Festival featuring a cross-section of Berlin’s underground queer scene.

Aiming to create an inclusive environment that provides space for the acceptance of all gender expressions and sexual orientations, but in a relaxing, outdoor environment outside of the hectic confines of the city. A multi-day camping festival where self-expression and self-liberation are paramount.

Considering today’s tumultuous and polarizing political climate, we find it necessary to create a refuge for those that oftentimes find themselves marginalized by the rest of society. WHOLE is more than just an outdoor weekend-long party, but rather an exercise in community building.

DESCRIPTION

A very intense weekly challenge to come up with something new every time, for '90 editions!', during the course of 2 years. Using mainly original filmed material and heavily distorted internet found footage, the only rule was - no techno, letting it open to anything else possible. As if it wasn’t enough, In addition to it, monthly flyers and weekly banners were produced to enhance the communication of this great cultural hotspot in one of the up and coming neighborhoods of Berlin, Wedding.

PROJECT

A stream of ideas, flowing from a strong ideology that supports edgy creativity happening away from mainstream culture. An underground stronghold for all sorts of open-minded people, a flood cultures, a place to meet, to create or simply to get together. Togetherness that are a trademark of their events, sprinkled with a very painstaking musical taste, Panke is hosting performances and events inviting all for a unique experience. The gallery seeks to open up a local and international dialogue between established and emerging artists in the recent history of Berlin. A primal exchange for the breakthrough aftermath of a rare mix of indulgent life lovers.

DESCRIPTION

Photo-Editorials / Artworks for the party’s promotional campaigns based in queer aspects and inclusiveness of gender, body-positiveness and political statements. Long-time partners, the trash collective provided to the rioters exclusive material for almost 2 years. Enjoy every second of it!

PROJECT

One of the many queer parties of Berlin local scene, the project ran by the Brazilian duo Mauro Feola and Geovane Pedro De Bortoli (Co-founder of TrashEra) is one of the most cozy and intimate events in the city. With a very eclectic booking, valorizing mostly local DJs, the party also provided substantial attractions of the size of Miss Kittin. Underground as it seems, Riot appreciates survivors of neglected life stories, empowered by the act of living their lives by a matter of choices made based on political beliefs that go against the system and sustain a safe space for minorities.
