Set in post-industrial Detroit, Adam Csoka Keller directs the new prelude to Jenn Nkiru’s film on Techno music for the last part of the four-part series in collaboration with Frieze.
A new musical language was created in the suburb of Belleville in the late 80s. Fusing European pop with Chicago house music, techno music became a Detroit phenomenon attracting the attention of late-night TV dance shows on local channels. In this homage to these historical and regional TV shows and the wider genre of music performance TV from the 80s, a glamorous cast dance to club hits wearing the pieces from the Fall Winter 2018 collection.
