The legendary German band Einstürzende Neubauten, known since the 80ies for their uncompromising approach to music has come up with a yet another groundbreaking project once more far ahead of its times, enabling them to work on their endeavors without needing to bow to the music industries rules and regulations. What an impact this cheeky use of modern technology has had on the band, their fans and the music industry is portrayed in the Documentary “Einstürzende Neubauten – On tour with neubauten.org” by Danielle de Picciotto.
Danielle de Picciotto, an American artist living in Berlin since the fall of the wall, has influenced Berlins cultural scene since 1985 in many ways as the co – innovator of the “Love Parade”, the “Ocean Club” with Gudrun Gut and “Kunst oder König” the club –cultural exhibition series presenting Berlins creative cross culture internationally. Also an active member of Berlins music scene (former singer of the “Space Cowboys”) she has known Einstürzende Neubauten personally for almost twenty years, following their development with interest. After becoming member of their new project “Neubauten.org” in 2003 she was asked to document the ensuing tour in 2004 by Blixa Bargeld, singer of the band, to provide material for future concert documentaries. Besides filming every show she interviewed countless “supporters” worldwide ending up with this documentary – a courageous example of on how following an individual, courageous path can change people’s lives worldwide.
