Deichkind

Posted by Lucas—01/2013

“Impulsive people know no limits.” This translated lyric could be the slogan of Deichkind, a German band that manages to constantly and boundlessly reinvent itself. Gestalten's eponymous photobook Deichkind by Nikolaus Brade documents the daily life on tour of one of today’s most exciting and successful live acts in Germany. Each band member, mystically and theatrically disguised, becomes a seamless part of the Deichkind performance phenomenon that continues to pack sold-out concert halls. Gestalten.tv spoke to the crazy yet disciplined band about self-promotion, anonymity, megalomania, and losing weight. The limited, hand-signed special edition of the book will be available from January 21st, 2013.

“Impulsive Menschen kennen keine Grenzen.” So ungefähr lautet das Motto einer Band, die es schafft sich ständig und maßlos neu zu definieren. Der beim Gestalten Verlag erschienene Bildband Deichkind: Eine Prise Mythos des Fotografen Nikolaus Brade dokumentiert den Werdegang eines der momentan spannendsten und erfolgreichsten Live-Acts Deutschlands. Die Mitglieder präsentieren sich schleierhaft, theatralisch und verkleidet und tragen als feste Einheit das Performance-Phänomen Deichkind durch die ausverkauften Konzerthallen des Landes. Gestalten.tv sprach mit den kontrolliert durchgeknallten Deichkindern über Selbstinszenierung, Anonymität, Größenwahn und Abnehmen. Die limitierte, handsignierte Sonderausgabe des Buchs ist ab dem 21. Januar 2013 erhältlich.
