Kraftwerk rocks Tate Modern

(menu)

kraftwerk the destination - kraftwerk.jpgIs it a man? Is it a machine? No, it’s… Kraftwerk, coming to an art gallery near you.

Yes, the experimental German musicians are bringing their distinctive music, 3D projections and animations to Tate Modern’s cavernous Turbine Hall in February for an eight-night run.

Acknowledged as being one of the most innovative bands of their time, pioneering innovative recording techniques such as looping and using computerised rhythms, Kraftwerk has been credited as an influence by nearly every major artist to have appeared in the past four decades: Depeche Mode, Joy Division and New Order, David Bowie and Franz Ferdinand are just a few.

The group has taken to performing in an artistic context in recent years, including appearances at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and Venice Biennale.

The group will be performing an album each night, with 1974’s Autobahn kicking off proceedings. The following nights will see Radio-Activity (1975), Trans-Europe Express (1977),The Man-Machine (1978), Computer World (1981), Techno Pop (1986), The Mix (1991) and Tour de France (2003).

KRAFTWERK - THE CATALOGUE 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 will take place 6-14 February in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall. For further information and tickets, visit the Tate’s event page.
