Dimitri Hegemann has no shortage of life achievements. He has organised five Berlin Atonal festivals, opened an art gallery and two clubs, including Tresor, which is commonly regarded as one of the finest techno clubs in the world.
Currently, Hegemann is focusing on restoring a disused car factory in Detroit as a cultural centre for music, art and technology. However, he has recently announced his next project: the “Living Archive of Elektronika”.
In an interview with Resident Advisor, Hegemann explained that the second museum will show “how techno has helped develop the city of Berlin” through showcasing “a contemporary assortment of technology and analogue artifacts, paraphernalia and recordings.”
At this stage, Hegemann says it is unlikely that the museum that’ll be based in the Kraftwerk Berlin space will open by the end of 2016, but there’s no doubt it will be worth the wait.
