The multimedia project Kraftwerk was founded in Dusseldorf in 1970 by Ralf Hutter and Florian Schneider, and immediately stood out for its originality and its avanguardistic approach in mixing electronic music with other disciplines (such as art and design). They have been an endless source of inspiration for a very diverse range of music genres: from electro to hip hop, from techno to synth pop.
Today the Kraftwerk are not only a band but also a ever-changing artistic project. In the last few years they came back to visual arts: “The Catalogue 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8″, a true retrospective of their work, has premiered in 2012 at Moma New York. Several performances have followed in the most prestigious venues: Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen in Düsseldorf, Turbine Hall at Tate Modern in London, Akasaka Blitz in Tokyo, the Opera House in Sydney, Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, Burgtheater in Wien, Louis Vuitton foundation in Paris and Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin. They are adding to the list the new OGR Torino.
