The New Negative White Archive

Between 2010 and 2020, Negative White's staff published hundreds of articles and thousands of photos. We're preserving them on a new site.

From its innocent and naïve beginnings in 2010, Negative White became a significant, independent online magazine covering cultural events at home and abroad.

For a decade, volunteers reported and photographed hundreds of concerts, wrote reviews, interviewed artists, and researched background stories. It generated a vast archive of photos and articles written in German.

Now, we will migrate the archive onto a new platform to keep the content alive and well. You can already find the archive here.

How Negative White looked in 2014.

In the coming weeks, or probably months, considering the amount of content, we will carefully select archived material and publish it to the new website. It is a considerable effort as we are looking at a pool of around 2500 articles and roughly 10'000 photos.

However, we think the challenge is worth it as we preserve pearls like our report from Lewis Capaldi's first headline show in Switzerland or the gallery from The Libertines gig in 2018.

Currently, just under 100 articles are produced and published, but more will follow as we migrate more content. We will follow up on the progress at appropriate points in time.

If you also think our effort is worth it, please consider supporting us with a paid membership and help us finance the archive.
