David Bowie has close ties with Berlin, the “Berlin Triology”, which includes the albums Low (1977), Heroes (1977) and Lodger (1979), was inspired by the city. This exhibition takes visitors inside Bowie’s creative processes and shows how his work has channelled wider movements in art, design, theatre and contemporary culture.
