"Geniale Dilletanten" [Genial Dilletantes]: Subculture in Germany in the 1980s

Booklet 26.06.15 2015

The exhibition booklet accompanying the exhibition "Geniale Dilletanten" [Genial Dilletantes]" contains an overview of the exhibition spaces and short explanatory texts on the brief era of artistic upheaval in Germany, for which the deliberately misspelled title of the concert held in Berlin's Tempodrom in 1981 has become a synonym. The extensive exhibition presents the protagonists and venues of artistic milieus in different German cities, offering insight into a broad variety of networks as well as exploring simultaneous developments in art, film, fashion, and design.
