What to expect

Evoking the experience of being in a club, the exhibition will transport you through the people, art, design, technology and photography that have been capturing and shaping the electronic music landscape.

Celebrate 50 years of legendary group Kraftwerk with a half-hour long 3D show. Step into the visual world of The Chemical Brothers for one of their legendary live shows, as visuals and lights interact to create a new three-dimensional experience by Smith & Lyall – featuring Grammy Award-winning track 'Got to Keep On'.

Travel to dance floors from Detroit to Chicago, Paris, Berlin and the UK’s thriving scene; featuring over 400 objects and the likes of Detroit techno legend Jeff Mills, Haçienda designer Ben Kelly and the extreme visual world created by Weirdcore for Aphex Twin’s ‘Collapse’. Discover early pioneers like Daphne Oram and the seminal BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Indulge your senses with large scale images of rave culture by Andreas Gursky, iconic DJ masks and fashion, a genre-spanning soundtrack by French DJ and producer Laurent Garnier, graphics from Peter Saville CBE and history-making labels and club nights.

A couple of Chems T Shirts and a black version of the tea towel here, along with some other Chemical items. I'm liking the slow shutter Tee. I like imagery more than just a band name. One is art, the other is advertising  The Kraftwerk autobahn shirt is nice too. For £25...

(This is page 4, see page 2 for the GTKO 12")

EDIT: Just realised these are in the Merch section on the chems website too, along with the white tea towel re-imagined as a Tee and a tote bag.

Yeah, I never really understood why they have so few cool shirts with live visual prints available rather than just those simplistic logo shirts. They could choose from quite a selection of wonderful themes... The mad telephone man, Swoon, Escape V, etc.
You wanna know my biggest disappointment for the live sets 2019? You wanna know? I tell you what my biggest disappointment is: I AM FUCKING NOT THERE!
