HIPGNOSIS.BREATHE. Album Cover Art and Photo Design by Aubrey Powell & Storm Thorgerson

Celebrating 50 Years THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON

26.05.2024 bis 15.09.2024


Hipgnosis, the legendary British photo design studio founded by Pink Floyd friends Aubrey Powell and Storm Thorgerson, designed some of the most famous record covers in music history between 1968 and 1983. For Pink Floyd Atom, Heart Mother, Wish You Were Here and Animals, among others. For Led Zeppelin Houses of the Holy and Presence, for Genesis The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway and for Peter Gabriel Car, Scratch and Melt. Record icon The Dark Side of the Moon just turned 50! In total, more than 415 cover designs have been created.


Syd Berett of Pink Floyd is said to have sprayed the name on the studio door. The contradictory, ironic union of the meaning of hip – new, cool, trendy and gnosis – ancient Greek for knowledge immediately appealed to the two designers. The exhibition brings together the duo's most important designs and presents them in an impressive way on large-format limited edition prints. Curator: John Colton, Browse Gallery Berlin


"With her daring, spectacular imagery and sometimes downright shameless creativity, Hipgnosis became the most influential cover design agency in the world." (Peter Gabriel)


An exhibition of the Ludwiggalerie, Schloss Oberhausen in cooperation with the Browse Gallery Berlin, in collaboration with Aubrey Powell".

For more than 20 years, artists from Oberhausen and the region have been providing well over 1000 loans to the steadily growing number of ArtOthek customers. A wide range of artistic media is available, both in the form of one-of-a-kind pieces and as editions, watercolour, gouache, collage and drawings, etchings, woodcuts, sculptures and objects.


This is a reason to celebrate: With an anniversary exhibition, we would like to thank all those who have supported the ArtOthek through loans, for example through the LUDWIGGALERIE Schloss Oberhausen, the Kunstverein Oberhausen, the Arbeitskreis Oberhausen artists and works of the painting school, or who have actively used it as borrowers!


In the Small Castle of the LUDWIGGALERIE, new works from the studios will provide exciting insights into current regional art for over four months. Like the ArtOthek, the exhibition also aims to be a special place of communication: exhibition talks and workshops are on the program and invite dialogue. During the duration of the exhibition, the ArtOthek is open every Thursday from 4–8 pm!
