Art was Bowie’s second passion after music. His private art collection is currently going under the hammer at the London auction house Sotheby’s. After the first day of auctioning, all expectations were exceeded.
Pink Floyd formed during a time of upheaval in the 1960s. Now they're the focus of an exhibition at the Dortmunder U. DW found out how their album covers were made and what they have to do with a French chemistry book.
