Throughout the exhibition A Second of Eternity, the Bourse de Commerce is proposing a series of Secret Club evenings devoted to the aesthetics of disappearance. The programming for these evenings, conceived together with the musicians lueke and Low Jack, will only be revealed to the audience upon entering the museum.
In resonance with Felix Gonzalez-Torres’ 1991 piece “Untitled” (Go-Go Dancing Platform), Secret Club introduced club music into the museum space and transforms the Foyer into a dance floor. These evenings pay homage to the legendary clubs that nurtured club culture like Plastic People in East London’s Shoreditch, which was fully blacked out, and to its equally legendary sound system, rendering the bodies of both dancers and DJ invisible to create a highly intimate musical experience. The Secret Club evenings draw on festive experiences, on the slow and sensual tempo of a Lovers rock evening, endless acid nights at Haçienda, even the last days of disco. This travel through musical time uses sound to create a fully immersive listening experience. During these evenings, lights will reveal the set design of a ghost of a concert from past programming.
