3-D Video-Installation 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 | Kraftwerk

Monika Sprüth and Philomene Magers are pleased to present the first solo exhibition of Kraftwerk in Berlin. On display is a 3-D video and sound installation entitled 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 specifically developed by Kraftwerk in 2013. The multimedia project Kraftwerk was founded in 1970 by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider within the experimental art scene of the late Sixties in Düsseldorf.


Kraftwerk are considered to be pioneers in electronic music and an endless source of inspiration for a wide range of musical genres: from Electro to Hip Hop, from Techno to SynthPop. They have made musical history and achieved recognition all over the world for more than four decades now. Kraftwerk created the soundtrack for the digital age of the 21st century.


Since their beginnings in the early Seventies they worked with the latest achievement of modern technologies, produced revolutionary electronic “sound paintings” and experimented with synthetic sounds, voices and automatic mechanical rhythms.They composed sound poetry with highly reduced-condensed texts and programmed their robot image as an expression for the theme of a world dominated by machines and computers. Right from the start, Kraftwerk regarded their concert performances as complete audio-visual events.


The Kraftwerk sound and image has been a long-term influence not only in music, but also in the world of contemporary visual art. Texts, style, and media-reflective strategies incorporated the themes and issues of the information era, namely the interaction between men and machines.
