With over 400 exhibits, the exhibition “Too Fast to Live, Too Young to Die”  features punk graphics in the form of flyers, posters, album covers and more.



 

Punk, perhaps less than all other music genres, was and is about the music alone. All the more unmistakable, therefore, is the aesthetic that the genre has produced and whose influence has been felt in all cultural areas, not least in design. The exhibition “Too Fast to Live, Too Young to Die”, says Christopher Scoates, the new director of the MAD as of this year, “charts punk’s explosive impact on design and examines its complex relationship with art, history and culture“.

With over 400 exhibits, the exhibition features punk graphics in the form of flyers, posters, album covers and more, including early editions of Punk Magazine and works by the graphic designers Malcolm Garrett and Peter Saville. The multimedia presentation “Please Kill Me: Voices from the Archive” displays interviews with icons of the era. Until mid-July, the exhibition will be accompanied by a film programme with samples drawn from international punk cinema.
