Black to Techno

May 23 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

$5

MOCAD will host the screening of Black to Techno on Thursday, May 23 at 6:30 p.m. EST.

The second screening and conversation will be on Sunday, May 26 from 2 to 5 p.m. EST with the film’s director Jenn Nkiru, Cornelius Harris, and Nandi Comer.

“Shot in Detroit by British filmmaker Jenn Nkiru, Black to Techno explores the origins and circumstances that created techno in Detroit – everything from the city’s auto history to the influence of the Motown artists.

Black to Techno is a visual collage of intersecting narratives, conceptual frameworks, archival references, and original imagery, asserting Techno not just as a musical gesture but as a philosophical, sonic, and anthropological one.”

Admission is $5 for nonmembers and FREE to MOCAD members. You can RSVP to the event by clicking here.

Presented in partnership with Gucci and Frieze.
