One of the most successful rock bands in the world invites you to see their interactive multimedia exhibition: “The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains”. From 15 September onwards, for five months, the Dortmunder U will be the first and only venue in Germany to host this popular exhibition. It created quite a buzz in two cultural hotspots: first in London and most recently in Rome. It sounds a little bit like the Champions League, doesn’t it? Dortmund is in it to win it.

"A sensory orgy ... not just for fans, because it celebrates great intuitions of the pre-digital age, technological experimentation, sound evolution." – Il Messaggero
“The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains” showcases items that go back to the band’s roots. Original stage props, instruments and lots of interactive stations allow visitors to experience the formation of the band up close.
The Dortmunder U is a new art gallery located in the heart of North Rhine-Westphalia. With around 200,000 visitors in 2017, the “U” has established itself within Germany as a hotspot for art, film, gaming and digital culture. Exhibitions from world-renowned artists don’t just attract discerning fans – above all, they appeal to a younger audience. With its combination of contemporary art and new media art, cultural education, science and research, the Dortmunder U is unique among Germany’s cultural institutions. It also hosts high-profile events and congresses.
As the audio partner for the exhibition, Sennheiser creates unique sound experiences: Pink Floyd’s legendary music and interviews with members of the band are played automatically via an audio guide for visitors to listen to. The highlight of the exhibition is a 360° audio-visual installation which plays a remixed version of the song “Comfortably Numb” using innovative AMBEO 3D Audio Technology. It’s a unique 17-channel remix, played through 25 loudspeakers.
DSW21 is on board as the local presenting partner. Dortmund’s public utilities place a great deal of importance on engaging with the community and promoting culture. DSW21 supports the Pink Floyd exhibition with passion, expertise and enthusiasm in line with its slogan: “Mobility – logistics – water and energy – living spaces – data networks. We make things easy!”
