‘I ASSERT TECHNO IS NOT JUST A MUSICAL GESTURE BUT A PHILOSOPHICAL, SONIC AND ANTHROPOLOGICAL ONE. ”
Gucci releases its Second Summer of Love Film Series, which is the fourth instalment of the Frieze Project.
Jenn Nkiru is the fourth artist to showcase in Gucci’s series ‘Second Summer of Love’. In collaboration, both Gucci and Frieze hand selected four artists and film makers to create films inspired by the ‘Second Summer of Love’, the explosion of electronic music and youth culture in 1988.
The Second Summer of Love series explores acid house roots, from the Italian disco scene of the mid 1980s, techno cultures of Chicago, Detroit and New York, to rave’s rupturing and rebuilding of British identity.
The series is accompanied by four 60-second prelude films directed by Adam Csoka Keller and photographed by Evelyn Benčičová.
The fourth instalment premieres Sunday 7 October at 3.30pm, Frieze London Auditorium
A film by Wu Tsang premiered at Frieze New York in May. The next film premiere based on Detroit and Berlin techno culture, will be at Frieze Los Angeles next February 2019.
