Coinciding with the fiftieth anniversary of the Prague Spring, Centrala presents a wonderful new exhibition, Wayne Burrows’ Eastern Bloc Songs: Party, Pop and Politics, the history and development of popular music from former Eastern Bloc Communist states during 1963 – 1988. Featuring sleeve art, TV clips, photographs and posters, it’s a uniquely inventive foray into the cultural peculiarities of communism and state sponsored entertainment. A private viewing takes place as part of Digbeth First Friday with the exhibition itself continuing until 20th October.
