In his new book Trance – a mixture of literary non-fiction and personal essay – the writer Leonhard Hieronymi (born in 1987 in Bad Homburg vor der Höhe) traces the origins of German trance and technoculture in the 1990s in Frankfurt am Main. He combines approaches to club culture history with autobiographical memories of his youth in the Frankfurt area, in which he and his friends narrowly missed a subversive moment in techno history and grew up feeling as if they were on the periphery in terms of time and space.

In this Wandersalon, the author will read from his book and give insights into his research and experiences, which illustrate the importance of club culture and nightlife strikingly and entertainingly – from Frankfurt to the Ruhr area.


The reading is followed by a DJ set. Free admission.
