The Philharmonie de Paris is devoting a retrospective to electronic music and its deciphering, entitled Rêve Electro, de Kraftwerk à Daft Punk, from April 9 to August 11, 2019. The exhibition offers an insight into this vast musical culture, tinged with a political dimension.

After Barbara or the Musicals, electro music in all its guises... That's what the Philharmonie de Paris is highlighting with a brand new exhibition entitled Rêve Electro, de Kraftwerk à Daft Punk from April 9 to August 11, 2018.

A plunge into a musical universe born over 30 years ago in " the underground nightclubs of Chicago and Detroit ", and set to music by Laurent Garnier, DJ whose reputation is well established.

The exhibition revisits the history of this musical movement, from Kraftwerk to Daft Punk, through " a luminous and sensory installation " created by the artists of 1024 Architecture. It's a real " sonic, participatory and sensory experience " worthy of the Rave Party atmosphere. Also on display are a variety of instruments, sculptures, installations, multiprojections and photographs, summoning " the main figures, musicians, DJs and inventors who have carried the vitalist, visionary or futurist ideal of electronic music ".

Robert Moog, Jean-Michel Jarre, Juan Atkins, Kraftwerk, Andreas Gursky, Peter Boettcher, Rineke Dijkstra, Peter Keen... all artists who have left their mark on electro music and art over the past thirty years, and whose work is featured in this exhibition. A movement that is also intended to reflect changes in our society, while having a political and counter-cultural dimension.
