Kraftwerk Does MoMA

What are you doing at the beginning of April? Because this seems promising.

The Museum of Modern Art presents its first time-based artist retrospective with Kraftwerk–Retrospective 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8, performed live on eight consecutive evenings from April 10 through 17, by Kraftwerk, the avant-garde electronic music pioneers. Each evening will consist of a live performance, in the Museum’s Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium, of works from one of the group’s eight albums, created over four decades, followed by a selection of original compositions from their catalogue adapted specifically for this exhibition’s format, to showcase both Kraftwerk’s historical contributions and contemporary influences on sound and image culture.

Tickets go on sale February 22 and there's a two-ticket limit per person for the series, so I guess keep refreshing this until then.

Huh. YMO's Ryuichi Sakamoto is programming The Stone in April.

Two ticket limit for the whole series? Guess that means you have to pick the one album (unless you go on your own to two which is a bit sad). I'd have to go with 'Computer World', that's if I was in NY and able to go in the first place.

"…works from one of the group’s eight albums…"

I wish they would stop pretending that their first three albums never existed. They're some of my favorites.

We are fast approaching peak Klaus Biesenbach! Is nobody else concerned about this?


That is all.
