The Design Museum reopens: Electronic: From Kraftwerk to The Chemical Brothers

The Design Museum will be reopening on Friday the 31 July of 2020 with a temporary exhibition ‘Electronic: From Kraftwerk to The Chemical Brothers’

For the visitors, new ‘Safe and Sound’ safety procedures will be in place, including reduced capacity, mandatory face coverings, social distancing, enhanced cleaning.

The exhibition was originally due to open on 1st April 2020. Tickets will be released to the public at 9am Friday 10 July 2020 and the ticket holders for the previous dates will be contacted to exchange them for a new date.

Tim Marlow, Chief Executive and Director of the Design Museum said: “This has been a positive week for many of the UK’s cultural assets, including the Design Museum. We are hugely grateful to have been awarded funding from the Arts Council Emergency Response Fund. This investment is a lifeline that enables us to do the vital work of championing the design industry and showing the critical impact that design makes to our lives. There couldn’t be a better exhibition to reopen with than Electronic: From Kraftwerk to The Chemical Brothers. A powerful statement about creative freedom across music, art, technology and design, which will be celebrating what many of us have missed the most during the lock down; and a reminder that a lot of work is still needed to get vast areas of the cultural sector to open again.”

Amy Lamé, Night Czar said: “The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating effect on culture and the night time economy, so it is great news that the Design Museum will be opening its doors again with an exhibition in support of electronic music. London is renowned for its world-leading music industry, and this exhibition will help to celebrate the positive impact artists and venues have on the capital at a time when we’re waiting for our much-loved clubs to reopen.”

All ticket buyers and the general public will have the opportunity to contribute to the new Ticket Mate Fund which is aimed at supporting the immediate future of the museum while offering free access to its temporary exhibitions to young people and adults in the local community including those most affected by the Coronavirus crisis by adding an additional voluntary donation to their purchases. Also, to support local heroes, NHS workers will have a special exhibition preview day and benefit from concession discount at all other times.
