Hey, VW's giving away free tickets to a very cool series at MOMA. Go to: www.VWGIFaway.com
Read on below.
Volkswagen of America is giving away
50 pairs of free tickets per night to the sold-out, eight-night live
performance exhibition, Kraftwerk – Retrospective 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8, from
April 10–17 at The Museum of Modern Art. Tickets are being distributed
as part of Volkswagen of America’s sponsorship of MoMA’s
highly-anticipated presentation of Kraftwerk, and its ongoing innovative
partnership between MoMA and MoMA PS1 that began in May 2011.
Each evening will consist of a live performance in the Museum’s Donald
B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium of works from one of the group’s eight
albums, created over four decades, followed by a selection of original
compositions from their catalogue. The performances, adapted
specifically for this exhibition’s format, showcase both Kraftwerk’s
historical contributions and contemporary influences on sound and image
In addition to the 50 pairs of Kraftwerk tickets to the performances at
MoMA, Volkswagen is offering 500 pairs of tickets to view a temporary
exhibition of Kraftwerk’s historical audio and visual material from
April 12 to May 14, 2012, in the MoMA PS1 Performance Dome, which is
made possible through Volkswagen of America’s collaboration with MoMA.
Fans who enter to win Kraftwerk tickets will be automatically entered
for both events.
Kraftwerk fans can win tickets by visiting the “VW GIFaway” website at www.VWGIFaway.com and
entering their contact information. For a second entry opportunity—and
an interactive way to express their excitement—fans can post an animated
GIF of themselves. Animated GIFs are composed of multiple images to
give the appearance of a movie clip, and are a staple of Internet
culture. These animated GIFs may be featured in the “VW Online GIF HUB.”
If visitors do not want to create a GIF for their second entry into the
prize drawing, they can mail in their entry. Winners will be contacted
by March 26, 2012.
Kraftwerk – Retrospective 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 will feature 3-D visualization
