An upcoming exhibition at London’s Design Museum will explore the audiovisual nature of electronic music events throughout history. Electronic: From Kraftwerk to The Chemical Brothers is open to the public from April 1st-July 26th, 2020.
As the name suggests, the exhibition will highlight stage shows for the likes of The Chemical Brothers and Kraftwerk. It will also touch on the work of Weirdcore for Aphex Twin and a virtual reconstruction of Jean Michel Jarre‘s studio. It will be soundtracked by none other than Laurent Garnier.
“Evoking the experience of being in a club, the exhibition will transport you through the people, art, design, technology and photography that have been capturing and shaping the electronic music landscape,” reads verbiage on the Design Museum website.
“Sound is only part of the story when it comes to this category of music,” said Exhibition Curator Gemma Curtin in a quote obtained by NME. “It has built communities on and offline, democratised music technology and provided a safe space for free expression.”
