On a Monday morning, after a boring night out clubbing in Berlin-Mitte DJ Poge and his girlfriend Dani drive out of the city, into the suburbs, to the dormitory town of Marzahn. Mitte is out, they are convinced; the future lies in the margins of the city. While searching for a suitable location for a new club they meet Mol, an old friend of Poge’s, who has been living in Marzahn for quite a while now. However, two pioneers are one too many.

Nina Fischer (*1965 in Emden) and Maroan el Sani (*1966 in Duisburg) have been working together since 1993 in film and photography projects that focus primarily on urban spaces and collective memory. As a duo, they have participated in numerous international exhibitions, including Manifesta 13, Marseille 2020, Videonale, Bonn 2019, Media City Seoul Biennale 2014, 2012, Istanbul Biennale 2007, Liverpool Biennale 1999, and the Berlin Biennale 1998. Fischer and el Sani live and work in Berlin.
