50 YEARS KRAFTWERK – EUROPE ENDLESS
Celebrating 50 years of Kraftwerk, this digital conference intends to explore the history of Europe through their concept albums. The project will take the shape of an e-conference on YouTube and a dedicated radio program/musical tribute on Movement Radio by its producers and dj’s.
"50 Years Kraftwerk – Europe Endless" aims to revisit Kraftwerk’s artistic output and re-contextualize it within a 21st century aesthetic and sociopolitical discourse. Setting nostalgia aside, this tribute to the band’s thematic and musical palette, can be a vehicle to revisit an era of progressive ideas and important social transformations in post-war Europe, an era that not only shaped but still informs our present.
With: Uwe Schütte, author of the book ”Kraftwerk: Future Music from Germany”; Daniel Miller, label boss of Mute Records; Jens Balzer, pop critic; David Stubbs, author of the book “Future Days: Krautrock and the Building of Modern Germany”; Lisa Blanning, author; and Yannis-Orestis Papadimitriou, journalist.
A collaboration between the Goethe-Institut Athen and Onassis Stegi, as part of movement.radio.
