Energy Flash - The Rave Movement is the first museum exhibition for considering the rave phenomenon, as well as the social, political, economic and technological conditions that led to the advent of rave as an alternative movement across Europe. As an interdisciplinary project, Energy Flash presents the work of visual artists in dialogue with many artefacts from the fields of design, literature and music, along with items from various personal archives, television documentaries and legislation.
