Kraftwerk to perform 3D retrospective at the MoMA

German techno pioneers perform eight albums at New York's Museum of Modern Art in April.


Words by: Charlie Jones

That Kraftwerk are a revolutionary band has never been questioned. However, something often missed out of the accolades is the sheer breadth of their music – the same band that helped created electro hip hop with Trans Europe Express also contributed to ambient’s birth with ‘Ralf Und Florian’.

So, it’s great that they’ll be performing 8 of their biggest albums in order at New York’s MoMA gallery in April. The performances will, intriguingly, be in 3D, and tickets are $25 each.
