Kraftwerk at Röhsska

There is an exhibition at the Röhsska museum in Gothenburg about the “cyber minimalistic kitsch” band Kraftwerk (e.g. Das Model).

I visited it following a very good recommendation. It is as much Kraftwerk retropective as a thoughtful reflection on the last 100 years of world history.

Exhibition hall.   There are posters, a timeline in the background, and a visitor looking at a booklet.

Main and only exhibition room

I enjoyed alternating between reading chunks of the historical timeline on the wall, and listening to what Kraftwerk composed during those particular years. Beware however that most (if not all) of the text is only in Swedish.
