The dark, austere warehouse of D Beirut in Karantina briefly played host to a selection of large-format black-and-white photos by the photographer and notorious Berlin nightclub bouncer.Produced by the Goethe Institute in Beirut, the show, which ran 15-18 March, had two components – "Rudel," an exhibition of his large-format photos of East Berlin's underground scene in the 1980s, and the audiovisual installation "Black Box". In conversation with The Daily Star at the exhibition opening, Marquardt discussed his profound appreciation for the timeless style of black-and-white photography. Aside from being, in his view, a "very classical, East Berlin practice," the absence of color allows photographs to convey a dramatic and melancholic effect.Thumping during "Black Box" as a score to Marquardt's portraits, Dettman's muffled, haunting beats combined with the striking figures from "Rudel" to simulate awaiting entry to an exclusive Berlin nightspot.
