We will also be featuring album art. 50 vinyl records with extraordinary covers will be on view during this exhibition which has been curated by American pop culture expert and writer Johan Kugelberg (USA). Some covers were made by musicians themselves or by famous artists such as Andy Warhol or Karel Appel. Other record covers have been deemed ‘controversial‘ and subsequently withdrawn themselves and never released. The first records of Afrika Bambaataa and other DJs from the early days of HipHop which are recognized as being very special and rare. Both Jon Savage and Johan Kugelberg will be in conversation with their views and opinions on the covers shown.
