David Bowie Retrospective Coming to Berlin

Exhibition David Bowie from May 20 until August 10, 2014 at Martin-Gropius-Building

Los Angeles / Berlin, February 28, 2014 — David Bowie is back in Berlin: from May 20 until August 10, 2014, some 300 artifacts, including handwritten lyrics, original costumes, set designs and Bowie’s instruments will give insight into the wide-ranging work and eventful life of the pop and style icon. The multi-media show offers a comprehensive audio-visual exhibition experience and aims to show the visionary strength of one of the most pioneering and influential performers in recent music history.

“The exhibition David Bowie is a major highlight for Berlin,” says Burkhard Kieker, visitBerlin CEO. “The retrospective is especially exciting because David Bowie and Berlin are bound by a very special relationship.”

After premiering in London and stopovers in Toronto and São Paolo, the Berlin show is one of the highlights of the international exhibition tour due to the intimate relationship between Bowie and the German capital. Bowie’s years in Berlin from 1976–78 were among his musically most productive. It was in Berlin, where he wrote music history with his three ground-breaking albums Low (1977), Lodger (1979) and Heroes (1977), all of which were inspired by 1970s West Berlin subculture, as well as by the city’s rich cultural history.

The exhibition David Bowie was curated by London’s Victoria and Albert Museum. For more information and tickets, please visit .
