Electro, the exhibition at Paris Philharmonie

From April 9 to August 11, 2019 Paris Philharmonie dedicates a retrospective to electro music and its deciphering, an exhibition called “Electro from Kraftwerk to Daft Punk”. An exhibition offering you to discover this wide musical culture colored with a political dimension.

After Barbara or even musicals, electro music from every angle… This is what Paris Philharmonie highlights with a brand-new exhibition called “Electro from Kraftwerk to Daft Punk” and running from April 9 to August 11, 2019.

A discovery of a musician universe born over 30 years ago “in the underground nightclubs of Chicago and Detroit” and set to music by Laurent Garnier a DJ we don’t need to introduce any more.

The exhibition offers you to come back to the story of this musical movement from Kraftwerk to Daft Punk through “a light and sensory installation” created by artists from 1024 Architecture. A genuine “sound, participative and sensory experience” worthy of the atmosphere in Rave Party. Are also displayed various instruments, sculptures, installations, multi-screenings and other photographs calling in “the main figures, musicians, DJs, inventors who carried the vitalist, visionary or futuristic ideal of electro music”.

Robert Moog, Jean-Michel Jarre, Juan Atkins, Kraftwerk, Andreas Gursky, Peter Boettcher, Rineke Dijkstra, Peter Keen… As many artists who marked electro music and art for about thirty years and whose works are approached on this occasion. A movement that also aims at being the reflect of the changes of our society while giving rise to a political and counter-culture dimension.
