THE FRANKFURTER issue 03/20
Unfortunately, The New Normal still has us under control. And we carry on, albeit at a distance at every meeting, every shoot and when visiting (handpicked) events as well as with the nagging uncertainty for our business and that of our customers, which will probably last for a while. And even if this situation, as our Chancellor put it so aptly, is an imposition, we are grateful that we even have the chance to continue to live our passion. We have ideas, the necessary infrastructure, great partners and, above all, our health - and we are convinced that this crisis can be mastered. It is also much more difficult for others - we are particularly sorry for the cultural institutions. We miss concerts, theater, cinema visits. And we miss the clubs! For this reason, our cover story is dedicated to precisely those clubs that are just as much a part of our city's cultural identity as the opera. The clubs of yore, which still shape the creative scene in Frankfurt today, as well as the clubs of today, in which the zeitgeist is created. We shot it in a club of tomorrow, the Fortuna Irgendwo by city historian Ardi Goldman, and we spoke to well-known connoisseurs and makers of the scene. Our conclusion: like all the other stories in our current issue - from the trip to Portugal to an insight into the new way of life - are forward-looking, optimistic, future-affirming. In short - also a quote from the same source: We can do it!
