The David Bowie exhibition in Berlin has been a great success so far: This week the show welcomes its 75,000th visitor. Since we are the organisers of this state-of-the-art multimedia experience we decided to extend the exhibition for another two weeks!
You can experience the pop-cultural phenomenon ‘David Bowie’ at the ‘Martin-Gropius-Bau’ in Berlin until 24 August 2014 daily from 10am to 8pm. “While some revel in memories, younger visitors discover the many references to today’s popular culture,” our very own Sarah Zimmermann, the exhibition’s project director, describes the ongoing fascination.
The world’s first exhibition on the pop-cultural and style icon David Bowie has been curated by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. At its core the exhibition is about the versatility of David Bowie’s oeuvre and the interplay between the various disciplines and forms of expression: David Bowie as a musician, painter, actor, performer, ageless avant-gardist and non-conformist. For the Berlin exhibition Avantgarde extended the part on Bowie’s formative Berlin years from 1976 to 78.
