Sven Marquardt is Berlin nightlife’s most notorious gatekeeper - widely recognized for his position as the doorman for the German city’s legendary club, Berghain.

What many people don’t realize is that in addition to being a famous bouncer, the East Berlin native is also an accomplished photographer. Having released a memoir and exhibited artwork at numerous galleries around the world, Marquardt’s curation skills extend far beyond the club scene.

The German television station STRRR has recently done a profile on Sven Marquardt, asking him to pick out a number of experimental videos, movie clips and music which give viewers a closer look into the artist’s worldview.

“I’ve browsed through Youtube, my favorite video troves and film clips that have inspired me in my work and triggered feelings.”
