The audio-led multimedia exhibition experience in Kraftwerk will host film, sculpture, archival objects and photography the exhibition explores the three decade long story surrounding techno’s ‘big bang’ in the early 90s. The exhibition examines Tresor’s winding journey in context – from its pre-history in the unusual economic and social conditions of West Berlin to its transition into the cosmopolitan capital city of today. Through archival materials, oral histories and immersive soundscapes created in partnership with usomo, Tresor 31’s exhibition explores the personal narratives that underpinned techno culture since its beginnings as an artistic and social movement.
