This year we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Loveparade with the inventor Dr. Motte himself and his temporary exhibition. In cooperation with the nineties berlin curator Michael Geithner, Dr. Motte gives personal insights into the extraordinary history of the Berlin parades and shows that the idea of uniting all people with electronic music is still present in Berlin today.
On July 1, 1989, a group of 150 people danced to acid house on West Berlin’s Kurfürstendamm. The Loveparade was born and the number of participants reached its peak in 1999: «At the first love parade we did what we wanted to do. We danced to electronic music for a better world. That’s why 1.5 million people came together in Berlin 10 years later. I think we have shaped a special time and generation with it», says Dr. Motte. over the years, however, the problems had grown. In 2001, the event was denied status as a demonstration and its funding became increasingly difficult. Finally, the rights to the brand „Loveparade» were sold.
The special exhibition will be part of the permanent exhibition nineties berlin until December 31, 2019. The entrance to the special exhibition is included in the ticket to the permanent exhibition.
