Low, Heroes and Lodger Album As Penguin Books

Apr 8th, 2014 by standarddesigns

Hi there, I thought I'd write and let you know about a series of prints I've made of three of David Bowie's albums as if they'd been written as books instead of songs.

I've taken the 'Berlin Trilogy' of Low, "Heroes" and Lodger and created a mini-library for each, with each track as its own novel, all arranged in the order they appear on the original albums.

The prints are available here: Low, Heroes and Lodger.

I hope you like them.

March-June 2013 Egbert Baqué Contemporary Art, Berlin, presented a very successful
gallery exhibition 'A Tribute to David Bowie HAUPTSTRASSE The Berlin Years 1976 – 1978'.

In May 2013 we published a catalogue (German/English, ISBN 978-3-00-042031-3):
68 pages with more than 40 illustrations + map 'Bowie's Berlin'.

As we currently are working to present HAUPTSTRASSE as a travelling exhibition,
we set up 'Bowie in Berlin' on facebook to keep Bowie-fans up to date.

David Bowie is definitely a source of inspiration. Here are two dolls inspired by the Ziggy Stardust era. They are made with yarn in a style called amigurumi crochet. One doll is Aladdin Sane, the other one has Ziggy's eyepatch.

HEROES: A Bowie-Inspired Theatre Production in Berlin

Jul 26th, 2013 by Heroes - Where Are We Now?

Berlin has obviously been an enormous inspiration for David Bowie's life and his work: his "Berlin triology" is legendary and with his comeback single "Where Are We Now?" in 2013, he went back to his time in the city in the late 1970s.

Both, Bowie and the city of Berlin serve now as inspiration for a one-of-kind art and theatre production taking place on August 24 in Berlin Kreuzberg: HEROES - WHERE ARE WE NOW?. With play, music, dance and video installations, HEROES tells the story of a young artist facing the city's art jungle from the perspective of people in their twenties. HEROES is looking into the art scene and its myths, its heroes and abysms, Berlin's past and its present.

HEROES - WHERE ARE WE NOW? invites David Bowie, Berlin and art fans to go on a hero's journey - for one night only.

HEROES - WHERE ARE WE NOW? August 24th, 2013 | Doors: 8:00pm
Umspannwerk Kreuzberg | Ohlauerstr. 43, 10999
