Catalogue: David Bowie Is

David Bowie, the man who elevated his music to art. A pioneering artist and performer. For decades, Bowie has been a major source of inspiration to millions of people. At last, we’re getting closer to Bowie than ever before. The Groninger Museum presents, for the very first time in the Netherlands, a breath-taking selection from Bowie's personal archive, with original costumes, hand-written lyrics, music videos, instruments, album designs and of course his music. The exhibition was previously a resounding success in London, Chicago, São Paulo, Paris and Berlin. David Bowie is follows Bowie's career from the start in London, via the breakthrough of Space Oddity and Ziggy Stardust, to his impact on international art, fashion and music of the twentieth century. The book – with hundreds of previously unpublished illustrations, essays and comments – shows Bowie's creative genius and his lasting influence on contemporary culture.

The book David Bowie Is is available here for €39,95.
