Celebrating the radical movement and alternative artistic scene that exploded from Germany in the 1980s, RMIT Gallery’s exhibition Geniale Dilletanten [Brilliant Dilletantes] Subculture in Germany in the 1980s + Australian Ingenious Amateurs (13 November 2015 – 27 February 2016) from the Goethe Institut explores the influence of German punk artists, filmmakers and seven bands including Einstürzende Neubauten as well as the Australian subculture scene of the era. Sound designer Darrin Verhagen talks about the Einstürzende Neubauten’s Klangbewegung Maschine, an audiokinetic jukebox by (((20Hz))), which provides a viscerally embodied, multisensory experience of three classic Einstürzende Neubauten tracks from the 1980’s.
