Records and Covers by Artists
Comprising more than eight hundred artist’s records and other sound carriers, the exhibition Vinyl—Records and Covers by Artists is presenting the visual and sonant facets of a unique visual arts medium. It includes all of the important art currents of the twentieth-century, from the early avant-garde movements and the main phase of Sound Art in the sixties and seventies, all the way to today’s trends. The union of the LP as a sound carrier and its cover as an image carrier opened up a diverse, hitherto unexplored creative field to visual artists. Transgressing the boundaries of conventional art forms, they took the liberty of exploring the creative possibilities of music, sound, and noises, of speech, voice, and instruments and their manipulation without traditional musical training.
Raymond Pettibon (cover), 1984

Based on the Guy Schraenen Collection, of which there is hardly another that is so exhaustive, the exhibition affords an international overview of the artist’s record—from Dada to Fluxus, from the Futurists to the Einstürzende Neubauten, from Eric Satie to John Cage, from Laurie Anderson to Laibach, from Beuys to Warhol.

It reflects the full range of artistic experiments in speech—for example, in works by François Dufrêne, Sten Hanson, Ernst Jandl, or artists of the Beat Generation. Visual artists created impressive works of art for the world of pop and rock—in the cover format 31 by 31 centimeters—among which were Roy Adzak, Roy Lichtenstein, Raymond Pettibon, Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, and Richard Hamilton, whose cover for the Beatles’ White Album became a genre classic. Photographs by Robert Frank and Robert Mapplethorpe are also among the pictorial worlds of the covers. On the inside cover of an album from 1970, the band Kraftwerk presents a full-format photograph by Bernd and Hilla Becher.

Vinyl is an exhibition for the ears and the eyes: prints, multiples, and objects from the area of Sound Art complete the visual world of the covers. A selection of about three hundred digitalized records, including numerous samplers, are available for visitors to li
