Discover the overlooked female artists in the late 1920s Germany, who captured the pulsating energy of nightclubs and the alternative lifestyles that flourished within them, as revealed in the exhibition, 'Into the Night'.
We take a closer look at the iconic Chat Noir cabaret in the bohemian Montmartre district of Paris, as recreated in our 'Into the Night' exhibition.
From a black and white photograph to a life-size recreation in our gallery, we explore the story behind Cabaret Fledermaus and how we brought it back to life in Into the Night: Cabarets and Clubs in Modern Art.
Barbican Sessions: Mark Kavuma & Michael Shrimpling
Trumpet player Mark Kavuma and bass player Michael Shrimpling perform 'Memories of you', composed by Eubie Blake, in our exhibition Into the Night: Cabarets & Clubs in Modern Art.
