A new book exploring techno’s impact on popular culture titled Techno World is set for release next month.
Based on an art exhibition of the same name at the German cultural association Goethe-Institut, the book takes a deep dive into the intersection of techno, art and identity.
Exploring further than just the genre, Techno Worlds examines the role of clubs by looking at at themes like space, sign systems, and the club’s role as a place where identity and gender are renegotiated.
Included in the 300-page book are images and illustrations providing context for techno music’s influence. Detroit-based visual artist Abdul Qadim Haqq contributed artwork for the book. Written contributions from DeForrest Brown Jr., Alva Noto, Chicks On Speed, and Ryoji Ikeda are included as well.
