The legendary Hamburg venue Golden Pudel has announced that it will indeed return to its original location.
In a statement on Facebook, Hamburg’s Golden Pudel club has announced that it has secured its location from the clutches of a forced auction last year.
No word when it will re-open. But read the official statement below:
HOORAY AND ARF, ARF! IT IS DONE!
Filled with tremendous joy and with a delirously beating heart, the Golden Pudel Club can declare the following news:
The piece of this earth that is intertwined with us, namely St. Pauli Fischmarkt No. 27, has been snatched away from the burning claws of the forced auction that has been threatening us for a long while.
Together with the Mara & Holger Cassens foundation, Wolf Richter’s shares in the property have been acquired. The property can now be used for public cultural benefit.
Consequently, the Club is now protected from the adversities of the capital market and can once again and continiously be used for counter-cultural experiments and the developing of our social idea.
Happily, loudly, and forever!
This is our house!
A gigantic thank you to all of the supporters for their solidarity—you have not only warmed our hearts but you were all of actual help.
Golden Pudel Club, Park Fiction und Pudel Verein für Gegenkultur e.V. (VerFüGe) — festlich.
