GUCCI & Frieze present the premiere of Jenn Nkiru’s Black to Techno

There will be a champagne reception followed by an in conversation with dream hampton.

Thursday 14th February from 7:30pm

I ASSERT TECHNO IS NOT JUST A MUSICAL GESTURE BUT A PHILOSOPHICAL, SONIC AND ANTHROPOLOGICAL ONE.

Detroit is the birth place of techno – the centre of its production and innovation with Berlin as it’s centre for reception and fandom.

Bound up in this sound are the particularity of a people, energy, industrialism, geography, politics and future imaginings of a certain time: it is an othered sound created by groups of othered people – it is protest music made by alienated people.

I look forward to exploring and unearthing these ideologies within this project.

— Jenn Nkiru
