Destruction is creation: TrashEra is born. The first ever TrashEra event was an overwhelming success, with over 3,000 guests and queues as long as Berghain. An extensive roster of artists (making this party more like a festival), and the incredible temporary location — a nine-level building in Mitte — were a big part of the attraction. Then there was the memorably dark basement, and LIGHT ROOM, a shimmering, sexy highlight of the party.
[ Zerstört ] It's a memorial to a city in flux. For one night only an ensemble of artists, performers, and DJs create a surreal likeness of Berlin’s culture of upheaval and excess. Get lost in a broken society of characters, set loose across ten floors of installations and enigmas. [ TrashEra ] '...from FRESH to TRASH' >> TrashEra is a concept that emerges from the club scene in Berlin and is invited to be part of this event about destruction. It's kind of basic in the city's lifestyle to have a 'trash' feeling, where everyone fits in a way of respect and support each other and most important: ACCEPT everyone's style and differences. That's what makes this small piece of Germany so amazing and unique in a point of view of creators and creations. Bringing this to life, has been touring a long way and developing a network of people who identify with the attitude to 'be trash'. When given the same level of esteem and affection, their positive contributions to the world radiate freely. Once achieved what we all could deliver to the world is just: AMAZINGNESS. >>because TRASH is not GARBAGE! A massive thanks to all those that joined us in this fight for space, in the best place we could do it: the DANCE FLOOR. This was just the beginning… VIVA TrashEra!
