The SCHIRN is dedi­cating a major survey to one of the greatest artists of 20th-century: Jean-Michel Basquiat





“Post-Punk Underground” was an interdisciplinary avant-garde art scene with an emphasis on music that emerged from the Punk movement between 1977 and 1982 on New York’s Lower East Side

This is art at its most all-encompassing, far-reaching and powerful. Boom, for Real.

SOUNDTRACK

While the stars danced to disco music with glitz and glamor at Studio 54, the under­ground scene in Lower Manhattan partied in the Mudd Club to the sounds of Punk, Post-Punk and New Wave – among them Jean-Michel Basquiat. He regu­larly appeared at the Mudd Club either as a DJ or as a clar­inetist with his band Gray.

The SCHIRN Sound­track captures the mood of the time.  It embraces Disco, Hip Hop, Punk, Post-Punk and Pop as well as Jazz and New Wave – all music genres that were inte­gral to 1980s New York and was produced there.
