The international exhibition “David Bowie” of the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) is here! The David Bowie retrospective creates a comprehensive audiovisual exhibition experience using multimedia technology at the most advanced technical level.
The curators, Victoria Broackes and Geoffrey Marsh, was given unprecedented access to the David Bowie Archive. They selected approximately 300 objects that can be seen until 10 August at the Martin-Gropius-Bau of Berliner Festspiele. The exhibits demonstrate the visionary power of one of the most influential artists in recent music history. The Berlin years from 1976 to 1978 were among Bowie’s most productive ones. The exhibits show how Bowie has playfully overcome the borders between dream and reality, genres and genders.
The exhibition in Berlin is organized by the communications agency Avantgarde.
