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.

Mondrian and De Stijl

Art | December 30, 2020

Holland at the beginning of the last century was the birthplace of a totally new form of art, an abstract art based on strict relations between rectangular forms, color planes, and straight lines. In October 1917, during the First World War, a group of young artists in neutral Holland joined forces to create a magazine. Called De Stijl, it presented and promoted this new, innovative art.

Sweet Land of Funk, currently on view on the third floor of the Museum's Katz Wing for Modern Art, explores the art movements of 1950s San Francisco. A survey of more than 20 works from the Museum's modern and contemporary art collections by Funk and figurative Bay Area artists, including Viola Frey, Jay DeFeo, Bruce Nauman, Richard Diebenkorn, and Manuel Neri, the special installation creates a sense of the City by the Bay, Oakland, Berkeley, and beyond during the storied period of Beat poets and bohemians, of Haight and "Howl," and of counter-culture that questioned conformity, ongoing military conflicts, the disparity of wealth, and other social issues that would fuel the revolution of the Baby Boomer generation.
