When the existence of his club in Leipzig was threatened by a real estate project, he founded the Leipzig Club and Cultural Foundation together with other Leipzig actors and is working with the project "Gleisdreieck" to preserve Leipzig's club culture and to create new spaces not only for clubs. As a sustainable project for the future, the ideas from the AG Club der Zukunft (Club of the Future Working Group), among others, are to become reality in the "Gleisdreieck".
