RMIT Gallery’s popular summer exhibition Geniale Dilletanten [Brilliant Dilletantes] Subculture in Germany in the 1980s + Australian Ingenious Amateurs must close at 7pm on Thursday 25 February.
This closing date is two days earlier than advertised, and necessary due to the exhibition’s Sydney opening in early March. So don’t miss out – come in during the day or after work on Thursday (we are open to 7pm) and immerse yourself in the radical movement and alternative artistic scene that exploded from Germany in the 1980s.
RMIT Gallery also presents a flavour of what was happening locally from 1979 – 1989 through an exploration of Australian subculture.
And don’t forget to have one last ride on the Einstürzende Neubauten Klangbewegung Maschine by (((20Hz))) to really feel like you are in a 1980s Berlin club.
The audiokinetic jukebox was produced by Darrin Verhagen, RMIT researcher and senior lecturer in sound design and multisensory experience.
Using a six degrees of freedom motion simulator (and a reclaimed Audi passenger seat), the RMIT-based (((20Hz))) team provide an entertaining experience that takes audiences into the heart of German subculture music of the 1980s.
The ‘Klang Maschine’ has been likened to being in a mosh pit (without the smell!). It’s the perfect homage to the brief, bright reign of the Brilliant Amateur.
Exhibition must end 7pm on Thursday 25 February.
