Revolutions: Records and Rebels 1966-1970 

This exhibition took place from 19.10.2016 to 12.02.2017 at ING Art Center

A whiff of Flower Power  has been blowing through the ING Art Center when the “Revolutions – Records and Rebels – 1966-1970” exhibition opened last October 2016.

An dyssey that plunged you into the ideas, aspirations, utopic visions and the thirst for freedom of the late 60s


Equipped with Sennheiser headphones, visitors were immersed in the sounds of the most iconic artists of the era (The Beach Boys, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell) and had a trip from the streets of Swinging Sixties London, into the heart of the May ’68 demonstrations in Paris, passing by the Summer of Love in San Francisco, dipping into the world of Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band by the Beatles, soaking up the Woodstock festival vibe or chilling in the counter-culture of the underground movement.

This exhibition was created by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, which also produced the “David Bowie is” and “Pink Floyd - Their Mortal Remains” exhibitions. It has been adapted for the ING Art Center with subjects specific to Belgium such as the student demonstrations in Leuven and the Amougies festival. This was considered as the first European Woodstock and took place in Belgium with a line-up featuring Pink Floyd, Yes, Ten years After and Frank Zappa.
