• Around 1980 Middendorf addressed the energy of the iconic Berlin music scene in several works. • "Electric Night", another work from this creative phase, is in the Städel Museum in Frankfurt / Main. • With its larger than life dancers and the strong and clear colors, our large-format work emanates a nightlife vibe.
