The exhibition Guitar ON/OFF is part of the project Template for Travelling Interactive and Digital Exhibitions, supported by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
Its innovative and flexible medium-sized format makes it accessible and adaptable to all types of venues: museums, cultural centers, festivals, media libraries, but also airports, train stations, shopping malls…
Guitar ON/OFF was conceived and coproduced by The Musée de la musique of Paris in France, the Museu de la Música of Barcelona in Spain and the RAGNAROCK of Roskilde in Denmark.
