Since 2010, the electro music is no longer reduced to the festivals, raves and festivals to which it is naturally associated: it stands out as a major artistic trend of contemporary culture. Accompanying the digital revolution, electronic dance music was born more than thirty years ago in the underground clubs of Chicago and Detroit. Influencing many areas of art, graphics, video, contemporary art, cinema, comics, dance, electro has given birth to a vast culture.
This exhibition explores electro through the discovery of its culture, including its aesthetics, imaginaries, technological innovations, main figureheads, territories and more. Simultaneously hedonistic and technological, radically different from traditional approaches, this exhibition offers a truly immersive audio and visual experience to recreate the party atmosphere central to this electronic music.

This exhibition offers an immersive five hours soundtrack, entrusted to DJ Laurent Garnier, that changes along the exhibition path as we revisit the history of electronic music, from the disco of the 1970s to today’s futuristic techno, pumping out about a dozen thematic mixes that synthesize the spirit of an era with the help of classics, hits or rarities.
