DAS MAGAZIN FÜR MÄNNER UND FRAUEN

Mal elastisch manchmal hart.

#1 The Hannover Mitte

Cris and Michael met at the legendary CASABLANCA in Hannover. Cris just returned from his first trip to New York and inspired by the scene was saying: “I want to publish a magazine.” Michael: “Me too.” We started the next day, snatched Thomas from the turntables at CASABLANCA.  No experience, no funds, no computer, lot’s of glue, fun and music. Three months later ELASTE was launched.

Ma' Ma' Raschplatz Da

„»Just what is it that makes today ́s home so different, so appealing?« (Richard Hamilton, 1956)
Wenn der Postmann zweimal klingelt, liegt meist ein kleines Kärtchen in meinem Flur. So auch diesmal »Basement« Hannover Raschplatz. Eröffnung Freitag 12.6.81 22h. Knapp am dreizehnten vorbei, dachte ich und lenkte meinen Wagen einige Tage später durch die trostlose Gegend hinter dem Bahnhof. Beinahe am Ziel angelangt ging ́s dann auch noch in den Keller. Gleißende Leuchtstoffröhren, Pirelli Gummi auf dem Boden, die Decke unverkleidet, hier und da ein bißchen Chrom. Der erste Blick signalisiert, hier wollte jemand der Café– und Diskothekenszene mit ihren pastellfarbigen, schimmernden Barocktempeln eine Ohrfeige verpassen.“
