the Design Museum introduces 'Electronic: From Kraftwerk to the Chemical Brothers' exhibition

Tuesday, March 17, 2020 - 12:15

On April 1st 2020, the Design Museum is thrilled to welcome 'Electronic: From Kraftwerk to the Chemical Brothers'.

Evoking the clubbing experience, the exhibition will transport you through the people, art, design, technology and photography that have been capturing and shaping the electronic music landscape.

Included within the exhibition is a celebration of 50 years of legendary group Kraftwerk , explored through a 3D show. You can also step into the visual world of The Chemical Brothers for one of their legendary live shows, as visuals and lights interact to create a new three-dimensional experience by Smith & Lyall – featuring Grammy Award-winning track 'Got to Keep On'.

Throughout the exhibition you can travel to dance floors from Detroit to Chicago, Paris, Berlin and the UK’s thriving scene; featuring over 400 objects and the likes of Detroit techno legends Jeff Mills and Richie Hawtin, Haçienda designer Ben Kelly and the extreme visual world created by Weirdcore for Aphex Twin’s ‘Collapse’. 

Discover early pioneers like Daphne Oram and the seminal BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Indulge your senses with large scale images of rave culture by Andreas Gursky, iconic DJ masks and fashion, a genre-spanning soundtrack by French DJ and producer Laurent Garnier, a sound reactive visual installation created specifically for the exhibition by 1024 architecture, graphics from Peter Saville CBE, history-making labels and club nights.

Electronic: From Kraftwerk to the Chemical Brothers is available for exclusive morning and evening Private Views, with access to the atrium for drinks receptions and dinners. This dramatic, triple height space with stunning overhead views of the original, hyperbolic paraboloid roof is made with 25 tonnes of copper and offers a sleek and memorable setting for evening events. For smaller numbers, we also have tour package availability, to include exclusive access to the exhibition and a glass of prosecco on arrival.
