“LOUDER THAN WORDS: ROCK, POWER AND POLITICS”


  • The Newseum 555 Pennsylvania Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20001 United States (map)

From the moment rock and roll hit the airwaves, it has played a crucial role in politics and social movements around the world. Now, two iconic museums – the Newseum and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio – are partnering on a one-of-a-kind exhibit that explores the power of rock to change attitudes about patriotism, peace, equality and freedom.

“Louder Than Words: Rock, Power and Politics” will showcase the intersection between rock and politics and examine how artists exercise their First Amendment rights, challenge assumptions and beliefs, stimulate thought and effect change. Through iconic artifacts and photographs, and multimedia experiences, the exhibit will explore music’s influence on civil rights, the Vietnam War and gender equality, and will cover such artists as Bob Dylan, U2 and Rage Against the Machine.
