The Corona crisis is affecting clubs especially hard. For more than 4 months now the complete nightlife has been at a standstill – that means zero income for clubs and discos. The Berlin Open Air Club IPSE has been hit even harder, because at the end of April this club was victim of arson 🙁
The 600m2 large interior and small parts of the outside area were completely burned down. Fortunately nobody was injured! Structural engineers have now confirmed that the fire has damaged the structural integrity of the warehouse to such an extent that it must be demolished. In addition, the special location of the site and the special situation mean that the crew does not know whether and to what extent the insurance companies will pay for the damage. The Berlin photographer Lisa Wassmann documented the extent of this horrible event for the IPSE team, and this photo was taken as a result.

The picture of the destroyed IPSE is also very painful for us. In February we held the photo shoot for the upcoming Fall/Winter collection together with Lisa Wassmann at this location. Now we look at these pictures and realize again how quickly everything in life can change.

Happily, the IPSE received a lot of support and collected some donations for the reconstruction of the location through a Startnext campaign. The crew is sure that they will not give up the idea of the IPSE and want to reopen with a changed concept.

Until then, you can buy the Compilation “SAVE IPSE” from KOFFÄIN and HALLO MONTAG to continue supporting the club. It contains these 16 beautifully composed tracks by artists who have played at IPSE before and will hopefully do so again soon.
