David Bowie Is

An amazing journey through the extraordinary genius of David Bowie

Barcelona’s Design Museum to host a spectacular exhibition on the life, work and influences of one of the iconic figures in 20th century popular music

Shortly before his death, David Bowie donated a large collection of memorabilia to London’s Victoria & Albert Museum. Bowie was a collector and a meticulous curator of his own memorabilia and kept books and clothes, records and sheet music, images and everything needed to make up a unique portrait of the formation and development of a genius. The exhibition, titled ‘David Bowie Is’, was seen by over one and a half million people in London before calling in at Berlin, Bologna and Tokyo. From 25 May to to 25 September it can also be seen at Barcelona’s Design Museum, offering the opportunity to be overwhelmed by Thin White Duke’s cultural legacy.

The exhibition is fully interactive and must be visited wearing headphones on which you will be able to hear music, fragments of interviews, exerts from films in which he acted while seeing everything from recordings of live shows and a stage clothes and masks to the keys of his Berlin apartment in the 1970s, fragments from his diary and books from his personal library, together with record covers and musical instruments. It is a comprehensive tour of a unique character and an immersion lasting almost two hours into Bowie’s fascinating universe.

Additional information and tickets sales are available from the official website. Book early – this is a popular event.
