An exhibit coinciding with the release of a new book by Klaus Voorman, It Started in Hamburg 1958-2018 opens in Hamburg this week.
Graphic works, sketches, objects and large projections at the Festival Village on Heiligengeistfeld will give us the opportunity to immerse in his multifaceted work; iconic illustrations from the Beatles era will send us on a journey through time with the Beatles. The exhibition Klaus Voormann – It started in Hamburgwill be opened by the master himself.
Fans can order the book directly from the artist’s webpage. Voorman recently turned 80. Looking back on a productive period of 60 years, the graphic art also refers to the musician Voormann and the perennial influence of the world of music. Besides well-known illustrations from the Beatles-area, almost 200 pieces of artwork will reveal the artist’s diversity, including many graphic works, sketches and productions supplemented by fotos and stories – hitherto unknown to the general public – and contributions of companions and friends.
