More About

More than 40 years ago, Kraftwerk, a German electronic group based around Florian Schneider, Ralf Hütter, and a revolving door of fellow musicians, began recording music that opened a door to a future that most have us have yet to enter. Over the next week, MOMA picks up the band's discography at Autobahn, the 1974 record that broke the band in America while attempting to capture the feel of driving down German highways, then moves through Trans Europe Express (Thursday), Computer World (Saturday), and the rest of the band’s eight major albums with live performances that synthesize the music with what the museum is describing as "complex layers" of sounds, sets, and videos. Can't make the shows? Head to MOMA PS1 for the Kraftwerk exhibition of audio and visual artifacts (April 12–May 14).
Tue., April 10, 8:30 p.m., 2012
