MoMA PS1 Celebrates Kraftwerk: Afrika Bambaataa
As part of its ongoing presentation of Kraftwerk audio and visual material, MoMA PS1 is hosting a series of DJs spinning sets inspired by the pioneering technopop combo; the action takes place in a performance dome set up in the museum's courtyard. Today's session, the series's grand finale, fittingly sees Afrika Bambaataa—who, along with Arthur Baker and John Robie, quoted Kraftwerk's melodies and rhythms to create the world-changing "Planet Rock"—working the wheels of steel.
