Barcelona Cultura

Lights, camera... Bowie!

This summer, Barcelona is getting dressed up in the style of David Bowie. Not only is it putting on the exhibition "David Bowie is" at the Design Museum, but is also putting on three accessories: cinema, music and talks. Or, more specifically, Bowie Cinema, Bowie Talks and Bowie Symphonic.

Whether you're a film buff or not, you are welcome (free of charge) to come along to the Museum's Auditorium and enjoy several film genres during July and August: one, the science fiction film The Man Who Fell to Earth? Or, even better, come and see Bowie alongside Susan Sarandon in the horror film The Hunger. We'll leave it up to you.

Four major artistic figures who worked closely with David Bowie are the stars of Bowie Talks: The renowned fashion designer Kansai Yamamoto, the promoter Daniel Grinbank, the documentary director Francis Whately and the photographer Denis O'Regan will speak about the literary, film and cultural sides of David Bowie.

The concert by the Symphony Orchestra of Catalonia will round off activities running parallel to the exhibition. This will take place on July 13, with 80 musicians bringing David Bowie's last album, Blackstar, to life, with arrangements by Evan Zyporin and songs such as Lazarus, Blackstar and Girl Loves Me.

This summer you'll have no excuse not to go out and make the most of the evening in Barcelona accompanied by the iconic David Bowie!
