After the horrors of World War II, German national identity was primed for an anything-goes reinvention — and creation always needs a laboratory. This past Saturday evening, the Guggenheim transformed into a re-creation of a decades-old Dusseldorf discotheque called the Creamcheese club, where visual artists and musicians tussled with ideas of originality, abstraction and innovation. The Guggenheim’s one-night-only event paid homage to a space that from 1967 to 1976 served as a revolving door to nearly all of Germany’s globally influential creative class.
