From The Guggenheim To A Jukebox in Zurich
From the Guggenheim Museum in New York to a jukebox in Zurich: For The Curated Jukebox, a project by Helsinki Klub Zurich, Matthew Barney listed his 50 favorite records. That's the concept: A famous artist lists his hundred favorite tracks and patrons of the club get a glimpse of the artists taste in music. After Sonic Youth and Lou Reed, this time a visual artist made his taste known: The 38 year old Barney is pretty much the hottest potato in the art world these days. His film series CREMASTER relies heavily on music: Country, Classic und Hardcore-Rock, moreover, the artist is married to Bjork. The curators in the pic are Mr. Privateman, left, and Cut-Cad L.
