BTV Photos December 4th 2016 Germany
My photos can’t capture the size or scope of this grand venue. It’s beautiful & overwhelming. Built in the early 1900s, Festhalle survived 2 world wars, used as a propaganda rally hall & as a holding area for exporting Jews. Rebuilt in 1946. Became a music venue in the ’60s & ’70s. It’s amazing how Frankfurt turned this once dark negative space into a positive venue to celebrate music & art. We got to walk around the space after soundcheck. I may or may have not heard a ghost in the old makeshift hospital wing.
