This was a small exhibition exploring place referring to Joy Division, The Moonlight Club, 1980 By Scott King. It showed the process and feelings during our research, revealing, collecting evidence and figuring out the place. The Moonlight Club once was the most crowded and popular place for gigs to perform in the 1970s-1980s, located in the basement of The Railway Hotel, London NW6 2LU. The basement isn’t open to the public anymore, and the ground floor of The Railway has been refurbished into a modern bar with the latest entertaining facilities and broadcasting pop music.
The only evidence we could tell what the basement aka The Moonlight Club looks like was the floor plan of the building hanging on the wall in the bar. The Moonlight Club wasn’t there anymore, but, the place is there, the memories, the extraordinary histories and our respect to all of its past are still there.
This was a collaborative project by Louise Hung and Mai Nakajima.
