Clubnetz was an early Internet chat project based on IRC in the 1990s Berlin art and techno scenes.

Hosted around 1994 in clubs and bars like Frisör, WMF, and Tresor. Clubnetz manifested itself through the hardware of its internet terminals to connect visitors with each other and with the Internet. For many, it was certainly the first time online, as Internet connectivity was not as commonplace then as it is today.

The recently, as part of the Exhibition "Berlin, Zentrum der Netzkunst - damals und heute" at, developed Clubnetz chat app (2018) has transformed Clubnetz into an instant messaging service which is now used for the Real Life-Laser-Chat-Performance "Clubnetz Performance" at the exhibition opening of the Transmediale 2020.
