Throughout music history there have been countless talented bands from the New York scene. One of the most extraordinary periods is the No Wave. Beginning in the late 70's, most people labeled this style as 'unlistenable'. Kill Your Idols explores the No Wave, focusing on bands and musicians, old and new, like DNA, Suicide, Foetus, Sonic Youth, Yeah Yeah Yeahs or Liars, with their comments, thoughts and musical values..
Inspired by the exhibition And Now the Good News, which focusing on the relationship between mass media and art, we prepared horoscope readings based on the chapters of the exhibition. Using the popular astrological language inspired by the effects of the movements of celestial bodies on people, these readings with references to the works in the exhibition make fictional future predictions inspired by the horoscope columns that we read in the newspapers with the desire to receive good news about our day.
