All week long I am looking forward to going to the KW. When I get there today:
Not far (there is a lot of art here) is the Museum Frieder Burda. It is quite small but has interesting pieces. One is about smell, there’s a video installation (header image) and video art in VR.
I am very proud of me! What a man! Managed to NOT buy a pair of trousers form this English tailor. Interesting garment, but not outrageous enough for me. She makes the clothes right here.
There’s also a museum about a man who had a factory here where he employed and protected blind Jews during the Nazi-Regime.
I go to the Hamburger Bahnhof. They exhibit modern art in this large museum.
Sarah Wiener operates the restaurant of the museum. I find a tasty vegan dish. With coffee I eat a bland tasting regular cake.
At dinner I meet Anna. She lives here for 4 years now and never went to a Techno club. She wonders why I like to do that (non-smoker and all). Here’s what I say:
Imagine a winter day. You are cold. You have prepared a hot bath of exactly the right temperature. You slide into the water and every fiber of your body moans … Oooohhhhhh and … Ummmmm.. and such. Utter bliss!
Or remember the sensation you feel in your body the 1 or 2 seconds right before and after an orgasm. Bliss! (In between one is too busy, they say*.)
(* I am quoting from other people’s experience here. As an engineer I never had an orgasm, of course! We leave those messy things to the touchy-feely types. I think.)
Imagine now that you could extend these moments of utter bliss from mere seconds to a minute. Wooooow!!!
And that’s why I go to Techno clubs. If the DJ plays the tracks I like, I get that feeling. Wooooooow!!! For many minutes! Several times during the night!
And only in a club. I cannot reproduce the sensation at home like I also cannot tickle myself.
Really! Clueless tourists who stumble into a Techno club and do the touristy thing IN GROUPS („Look girls, I’m, like, dancing in this, like, cool place that I found on Instagram!“) destroy the vibes!
