Studio 54: Night Magic


Design: Florida

Design: Florida

The legendary "Studio 54" is coming to Dortmund: The Dortmunder U is presenting a major exhibition centered around the influential New York nightclub that made cultural history.

The exhibition will be shown after stops at New York's Brooklyn Museum and the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto. To this day, more than three decades after its closure, Studio 54's influence on fashion, society and club culture continues. Through photographs, fashion objects, film and music, and never-before-seen costume illustrations and set designs, the exhibition recounts the nightclub's turbulent history.

On April 26, 1977, "Studio 54" opened on 54th Street in New York City and quickly established itself as the world's premier disco address with regulars such as Liza Minelli, Elizabeth Taylor, Andy Warhol, the Jaggers, Michael Jackson, Calvin Klein, Elton John and Grace Jones. Due to a tax scandal, the club had to close for the first time after only three years and disappeared for good in 1986. But it wasn't just scandals that made Studio 54 famous: it was also an example of social openness, because anyone could party here, regardless of origin, gender or sexual orientation.

The legend lives on - and with it the stories of exciting party nights, the most unusual wardrobes and, last but not least, the unmistakable music.
