The early 90s was a period in which the U2 impressed critics to re-imagine their own music with the release of Achtung Baby. 20 years later, the band revisited and this time, digging files, found a stockpile of unreleased tracks, collaborations precious, lost remixes and rarities cult-style side B. In addition to never before heard tracks, produced in the studios of Berlin and Dublin, the new material brings live performances and commercially unreleased videos, and club hits and appearances by special guests. Achtung Baby incorporates a multitude of ideas and styles, all represented in the mosaic that is the album cover. The photo collage qudradas symbolizes the spirit of 90 years and the changes in Europe after the fall of the Berlin wall. To celebrate its twentieth anniversary, the U2 team, including designer Shaughn McGrath and the original photographer, Anton Corbijn, are inviting artists to submit a photo or art that reflects the global environment of today. The photograph or artwork should express the same meaning in this cover of Achtung Baby. If Achtung Baby was released today, which photographs or art would be part of this collage?
