Underground und Improvisation. Alternative music and art after 1968
Two major exhibitions are the first to reflect on the alternative music and art movements in Berlin and Eastern Europe from the Prague Spring to the post-Reunification period. Including countless concert recordings, photographs, posters, flyers, original documents, interviews and many previously unpublished videos, the exhibition Free Music Production / FMP: The Living Music documents this unique music and cultural history of Berlin between West and East, now returned to its original venue at the Akademie.
The exhibition Notes from the Underground – Art and Alternative Music in Eastern Europe 1968–1994 shows in films, videos and artistic documents the close relationships between alternative music scenes and the visual arts in Eastern Europe. Contrary to state regulations and often in improvised forms of distribution, rock music, punk and new wave, performance, fashion, music videos and Super 8 films became artistic expressions of a counter-culture.
