For over forty years they have entertained us in a wordly, low-key way. All the while they’ve written music history and one hit after the other: the musicians of the techno pop band Kraftwerk. Their depersonalized style has produced both sonic and visual master performances that are now even noticed by the world of contemporary visual arts, as a unique form of artistic performance. The visual and musical metamorphosis of the group that is indeed more of a power plant than a band, has always been driven by the development of new technologies. Now they are presenting Kraftwerk videos in 3D projections in a museum tour in Munich, London, and New York that will, of course, also be part of future Kraftwerk concerts. The book—complete with 3D glasses— will be published by Schirmer/Mosel. The essay is by Matthias Mühling, curator of the October 2011 show in Munich.
