The Vinly Factory have collaborated with The Mott Collection to present on a new exhibition and limited editon book showcasing 45 iconic 7” Kraftwerk single covers that reflect the band’s remarkable aesthetic – an analogue past dreaming of today’s digital present.
Krafwerk’s enduring influence cannot be overstated. During the mid-’70s, they established the sonic blueprint followed by an extraordinary number of artists in the decades to come. From the the Human League to Africa Bambaaataa to Daft Punk, the group’s self-described “robot pop” – hypnotically minimal, obliquely rhythmic music performed solely via electronic means – continues to be as relevant now as ever.
Following their series of groundbreaking sell-out shows at New York’s MoMA earlier this year, this new exhibition is a tribute to these electronic pioneers. From September 13 through to October 5, it’s comprised of 45 7” Kraftwerk single covers showcasing the band’s unique aesthetic – “an analogue past dreaming of today’s digital present.” The Vinyl Factory Chelsea gallery, 91 Walton Street, London SW1. Entry is free.
In celebration of the show, The Vinyl Factory has created a commemorative book. Limited to 300 copies worldwide, this catalogue showcases 45 iconic Kraftwerk singles, and includes an essay by collector Toby Mott and an exclusive 7” single of a rare Kraftwerk interview.
