Kraftwerk – Elektronische Klangbilder in 3D



Starting October 15th, the Kunstbau at the Lenbachhaus gallery in Munich will display an exhibition of Kraftwerk music videos and promotion clips, all now in glorious 3D. The exhibition will - according to this - later travel to Tate Modern in London and to MoMa in New York.

Art book publishers Shirmer/Mosel will publish the catalogue for the exhibition, also in glorious 3D. This is what they have to say:
Over the last 4 decades electro pioneers Kraftwerk have written music history followed by their worldwide success. They are considered innovators and inventors of many different musical styles such as techno, electro, hip-hop and synthie pop. Since their concert at the 2005 Venice Biennale the contemporary artworld has perceived Kraftwerk’s multimedia shows as a unique form of performance art. From their beginnings in the early seventies Kraftwerk have always been connected with the developments of modern technologies.

For the exhibition “Kraftwerk –3 D Sound Pictures”, to be shown at the Kunstbau der Städtischen Galerie im Lenbachhaus München in October/November 2011, the catalogue will also be published in 3 D by Schirmer/Mosel, with an essay by project curator Matthias Mühling.

Schirmer/Mosel. With 3-D glasses. With a text by Matthias Mühling. 96 pages, 60 colour plates. Size: 28 x 28 cm, hardcover. English/German edition.

The title of the book and exhibition differs, depending on where on the Internet you read it. It could be "Kraftwerk – Elektronische Klangbilder", "Kraftwerk 3D" or "Kraftwerk - 3 D Sound Pictures". Or something completely different.

This is a very good exhibition and well worth the journey. The 3D is better seen projected than in the book. Only €5 too.
