de Biel, Ben

Ben de Biel (*1963 in Dillenburg) is a German documentary photographer. De Biel moved to Berlin in 1990. He was a co-founder of Ständige Vertretung – a night club inside the Tacheles – and a founder of the club Maria am Ostbahnhof in 1998. He was also part of the experimental electro band Elektronauten, as well as a member of the 'Eimer' collective. In his photographs, de Biel has documented his life in Berlin since the 1990s: the vibrant night life, techno music and the squatter scene around the legendary Tacheles. He lives and works as an independent photographer in Berlin.
