Tresor Founder Set to Open Techno Museum at Iconic Berlin Club Building

The museum is called the “Living Archive of Elektronika”
Techno Museum

A techno museum has been something this world needed for quite some time, but now it's closer to being a reality thanks to Tresor's founder Dimitri Hegemann who has revealed insight into his plans.

Back in November 2015, Hegemann first declared that he would be opening a museum in Berlin focusing on Techno: “I will call it the Living Archive of Elektronika, ‘cause techno here in Berlin is still a living, inspiring and vivid movement.”

Speaking with Star2, Hegemann explained his vision for the new project, saying how he aims to “convey the feeling” of being engulfed in the immersive, dark atmosphere of Berlin basements listening to techno. A feeling that is lost in many of the upscale super-clubs around the world. Hegemann's focus is on the raw, gritty nature of the genre and the new museum will look to embody that aspect of the culture's essence.

“I think of a place where visitors will come inside: suddenly, it gets dark, the fog machine gets going, a DJ appears in the distance, a bar rises up from the ground, the bass resonates and then the party’s started. A museum of the senses for those who don’t go to the club.”

It's still unclear when the museum will open, but Tresor's 25th anniversary is this year, so it would be fitting to have it open in 2016. What we do know however, is that according to Mixmag, the museum will be located at the same disused power station that has been the same location for Tresor since 2007. Stay posted for more news on this new project coming soon.
