Whether a Berghain purist or not, none is unscathed from the disappointment and subsequent bafflement at the club’s door policy. For equal frustration without the queue, take this simulation, created by Fabian Burghardt and Vinzenz Aubry. With a mix of questions and facial expression analysis technology, “Sven,” your Berghain trainer, will judge whether you are worthy, or more likely, not. One wonders what experiences and trade secrets Burghardy and Aubry culled for their algorithm. In any case, Berghain has subtly commented on the matter by ousting their logo from the website, leaving behind a pixelated rectangle icon in its absence–a entrance that might not exist, one might say.
