"Kraftwerk Roboter" - 20 Years Of Kraftwerk Performances In New Photography Exhibit In Düsseldorf

Website: http://www.nrw-forum.de
The musical group Kraftwerk is a pioneer of electronic music and started in Düsseldorf in the late 1960s. With its unique expression of a merged man-and-machine reality, the group has since developed into a total audio visual art piece in its own right, and a new exhibit at Düsseldorf's NRW-Forum chronicles their last two decades in photographs by Peter Boettcher.

Düsseldorf, Germany - Music photographer Peter Boettcher started shooting Kraftwerk performances at Düsseldorf's legendary Kling-Klang-Studio in 1991 and continues until today. The new exhibit "Kraftwerk Roboter" at Düsseldorf's NRW-Forum (January 12-30, 2013) is a collection of more than 30 large-scale photographs of performances from the past 20 years. This body of work forms an unusual exhibit of music photography: not backstage scenes, portraits of performers or snapshots of ecstatic moments in the audience or onstage, but instead a sophisticated reflection of Kraftwerk's main music and show theme: the collaboration of man and machine.

The images were shot at Kratfwerk performances all over the world, and they breathe the Kraftwerk universe of strict graphics and reduced shapes and colors. The objective of Kraftwerk's art is to create "sound images," and Boettcher's photography captures them perfectly as it seems to resonate the music of Kraftwerk and one of its most famous lines: "Wir sind die Roboter" (we are the robots).

The group Kraftwerk has its roots in Düsseldorf, where founders Florian Schneider and Ralf Hütter met as students in the late 1960s and soon developed their classic sound of synthesizers, drum machines, and altered, robot-like voices.

More recently, Kraftwerk has performed at the Biennale in Venice in 2005, installed a 3-D video show in Munich, and New York's Museum of Modern Art showed a Kraftwerk retrospective in April 2012.
