GOLD + BETON – The crazy one
Gold + Beton is very much part of this scene: a one-room space with picture windows and nothing more, save a toilet and a fridge for visitors. Sounds positively spartan, but in fact that’s all that is needed for this small, austere gallery to create a setting for encounters that is more exciting than many traditional venues. Experimental art “happenings”, walk-in installations and unconventional artists make this a very changeable and diverse place to be. And so visitors to Gold + Beton can be sure to experience something entirely different from the run-of-the-mill bar and band combos that dot the city.
My favourite Gold + Beton memory: An incredibly intense, sweaty appearance by queer band Sans Gene from Cologne on one of the hottest days of the summer. The picture windows were literally opaque with the water (if that’s what it was) dripping down them. The humidity and endorphine levels went through the roof.
