as we experienced that time.
Everyone is interested in his own history
and the images are sometimes a type of evidence
vthat you really witnessed these things.
Also, at that time there was no selfie-generation
constantly taking pictures of themselves.
Many people write me that they are happy about
these pictures, because they activate their memories.
The zeitmaschine photos are a kind of promoter.
They reactivate the past, sometimes I can even describe
the smell of the past when I look at an image.

The images are full of energy and show people
how they celebrated totally offline.
A time without internet,
and mobile phones
recorded by analog photography.
When films only had 36 shots and the
development could take a week.
We had danced and lived techno
even though we were totally analog kids.
what you did and what you were wearing.
The music was the common denominator.
Hooligans were celebrating with gays,
something unthinkable today.
We were actually techno hippies.
