Klaus Voormann - It all started in Hamburg
“A cover for the new Beatles album? Oh my God, no way I can do that, never ever!" But Klaus Voormann could! The music legend, designer of the legendary Beatles REVOLVER album cover, author, movie actor, ECHO and multiple Grammy award winner Klaus Voormann will open his work exhibition "IT STARTED IN HAMBURG" in the course of the Reeperbahn Festival. Apart from fabulous works from the Beatles era, Vormann will also show a variety of his graphic creations, some of them not yet known to the public!
What a pleasure to present an artist as the first confirmed programme item, to whom Hamburg plays a very special role! “I was born in Berlin, but Hamburg is the city of my heart. It built the bridge between my childhood and my adult life. My career as a musician and as a creative artist – it all began in Hamburg,” (Klaus Voormann, 2018). On the occasion of Voormann’s 80th birthday in spring 2018, in cooperation with our partners of hi-life - Uriz von Oertzen, we will present an exibition of his graphic works since 1958 as well as the accompanying book by the same name at the Festival Village on Heiligengeistfeld.
