Disappearing Berlin presents: Die hässlichen Vögel

Between marble mosaic, gold splendour and Faux Art Deco Die Hässlichen Vögel sing of freedom, love and abandonment. In 1997, Quartier 206, built by the New York architects Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, opened as Berlin's most exclusive luxury arcade with a free-floating marble staircase and a glass ceiling based on the Louvre pyramid. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, the area around Friedrichstrasse and Gendarmenmarkt promised to replace the Kurfürstendamm as the luxury shopping mile for the new Berlin. But Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent and Louis Vuitton left years ago, the once glamorous shopping temple has been under forced administration since 2011 and after Department Store 206 - the sophisticated heart of the quarter - closed in 2017, only Holmes Place is still at home here. In the middle of the floating staircase the avant-garde punk band Die Hässlichen Vögel will clash with the marble pomp. The band from Schöneberg refuses genre classifications, does not release any music and is currently planning a tour through prisons.

Band: Roman Ole, Luki von der Gracht, Josie Haar, Benji Wohlrab, Hansol „Bobo“ Kim.
The concert is co-organized by Dan De Norch.

Concert at 9 pm (doors at 8 pm)
