The main of this collection comprises vinyl records and covers by artists, musicians and poets in LP, single and other formats, alongside other sound media (tapes and CDs).

The exhibition shows artists (such as Hanne Darboven, Jean Dubuffet, Dieter Roth, Joseph Beuys, Laurie Anderson, John Cage, Yoko Ono, Yves Klein, Roman Opalka, Lawrence Weiner, Mike Kelley, Öyvind Fahlström, Art & Language and Hermann Nitsch) and artistic movements of the second half of the twentieth century through this complex medium of the vinyl cover, with its dual visual and audible components.
