Bone Music

11:00am – 8:00pm
¥1,200 (advance sales)¥1,400 (on the door)

Delving into the strange story of the Soviet Underground, Bone Music explores the sounds that were outlawed. Using X-ray film, bootleggers made recordings of foreign jazz, rock ‘n’ roll and Russian emigre songs – all forbidden by the ruling parties. A form of cultural protest requiring incredible ingenuity, the defiance was layered with risks and subterfuge. This exhibition explores the subculture using images, films, stories and the x-ray discs themselves.

This exhibition has travelled the world and will feature different events – keep an eye on the homepage for more details as they are announced.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
