  This building actually exists as an interconnected complex: in this picture it is portrayed separated out, as individual, inaccessible towers. The inaccessibility reminds us of the untenable nature of the economic task of maintaining such a building in its original state. In order for it to have a use in the present, it has to be stripped of its past. It currently serves as a discotheque, a temporary use which grants a stay of execution to the history written on the walls. The same thing happened in Berlin with all other discos, be that Tresor, Matrix or Ewerk - once life bubbled effervescently in these places, now they have yielded to economic pressures.
