the photoexhibition Kann denn Liebe Synthie sein? (Can Love be Synth?) at Reeperbahnfestval 2012 by photographer katja ruge.
In 2010 synth music lover Katja Ruge started the partyseries "Kann denn Liebe Synthie sein?" " (Can love be Synth?)" together with Frank Ilgener in Hamburg. Soon these events got connected to a photoseries that Katja Ruge did for the leading dance magazine Groove in Germany. The shots of iconic synthesizers such as the Minimoog, Korg ms20, Roland cr-78, Arp Odyssey, Roland tb-303, Roland Jupiter-8, Oscar and the Oberheim ob-8 are already a classic.
Katja Ruge exhibited her photoseries together with 80 analog synthesizers at Kunsthaus Graz with the synthesizerstudio hamburg, did a solo photoexhibition in the Conceptstore Achteinhalb Berlin in 2011 and this year at the SXSW Festival in Austin/Texas.
People (here in the video icona pop filming their viral, courtesy of warner music germany) can interact perfectly with these huge photos. The size is various. They get fixed directly on the wall out of over 100 DIN A4 prints or even on the floor when possible.
The party residency in Hamburg is the Club Golem, one of the coolest spots right now in the harbourtown of the city.
