CHUNK OF PUNK – ARCHIVE AT THE BARBICAN MUSIC LIBRARY

The Barbican celebrates 40 years of Punk with the opening of Jill Furmanovsky’s photography archives, featuring iconic and previously unseen portraits of many Punk bands.

Punk was about creativity and inclusiveness. Furmanovsky’s own training famously echoed Punk’s defining agenda: ‘If you can play three chords, you can form a band.’ Furmanovsky embraced this ethos by learning to be a photographer in two weeks, yet going on to win awards for her work.

Pictures of The Clash, The Ramones, Buzzcocks, Blondie, The Undertones, The Sex Pistols, Iggy Pop and Siouxsie and the Banshees plus many more giants of the Punk genre will be on display, alongside examples of original Punk vinyl that are already part of the Barbican Music Library’s extensive collection.
