The multimedia project KRAFTWERK was founded in 1970 by Ralf Hutter and Florian Schneider within the experimental art scene of the late Sixties in Dusseldorf. They set up their legendary electronic Kling Klang Studio where they composed and produced all the groundbreaking Kraftwerk albums.Numerous live performances took place during that time in museums and galleries of the surrounding Rhineland.
Kraftwerk are considered to be pioneers in electronic music and an endless source of inspiration for a wide range of musical genres: from Electro to Hip Hop, from Techno to SynthPop.
For their first gallery exhibition at Spruth Magers Berlin, Kraftwerk have arranged a special new 3 -D installation with synchronised images and sounds.
