London's Design Museum Honors Pioneers Club Culture in 3D Show

Paying homage to electronic greats such as Kraftwerk and The Chemical Brothers.

Back in May, Kraftwerk member Florian Schneider passed away at the age of 73. Schneider was a co-founder of the influential band from Germany that is considered as innovators of electronic music and being one of the first groups to popularize the genre. London’s Design Museum is paying homage to the legendary group alongside pioneers of club culture such as the Chemical Brothers in its latest virtual show entitled “Electronic: From Kraftwerk to The Chemical Brothers.”

Attendees are given headphones and a 3-D spectacle from the immersive, hyper-experiential exhibition that spotlights diverse artwork and ephemera related to electronic equipment. The institution also chronicles the history of electronic music in a tour starting off with the first-ever synthesizer, The Telharmonium, from 1901 as well as an installation of French electronic music maven Jean-Michel Jarre’s recording studio. Other highlights include 3-D film shorts from Kraftwerk’s 2017 tour as well as typography, photography, and fine art from seminal artists like Christian Marclay, Andreas Gursky, and Peter Saville.

“Evoking the experience of being in a club, the exhibition will transport you through the people, art, design, technology and photography that have been shaping the electronic music landscape,” said Design Museum in a statement.

Head to the Design Museum’s website to learn more. The exhibition is on view until May 3, 2021.
