Copenhagen (AP) - One of the most radical underground artists of the 80s and 90s, Nick Cave, is now ready for the museum. Fans of the Australian rock star and writer ("The Death of Bunny Munro") can get an impression of the diverse work of the 62-year-old from spring 2020 in Copenhagen.
The exhibition "Stranger Than Kindness - The Nick Cave Exhibition" (March 23 to October 3, 2020) presents more than 300 exhibits from the life and career of the musician in the Danish Royal Library.
The exhibition features manuscript lyrics, literature, videos, stage sets and collected personal artefacts of the Australian, as the organizer announced. "Stranger Than Kindness explores what shapes our lives and makes us who we are, celebrating the curiosity and power of the creative mind," it said. The exhibition unites large-scale installations and atmospheric soundscapes.
The exhibits come from the Nick Cave Archive at the Arts Center Melbourne, the collections of the Danish Royal Library, a number of private lenders and the musician's private collection.
The singer, who recently came to the top ten in Germany, Great Britain and Switzerland with his new album "Ghosteen", is on tour with his band The Bad Seeds in May / June 2020.
Tour dates: 17.05. Cologne - Lanxess Arena, 18.05. Hamburg - Barclaycard Arena, 27.05. Berlin - Mercedes-Benz Arena, 06.06. Munich - Olympiahalle
