TEN CITIES by Clubbing in Nairobi, Cairo, Kyiv, Johannesburg, Berlin, Naples, Luanda, Lagos, Bristol, Lisbon 1960 – March 2020

1960年から現代までのアフリカとヨーロッパの10都市のクラブミュージックとクラブカルチャーの物語をテーマとした1冊。より包含的な物語を紡ぎ出すために、本書では通常クラブカルチャーの中心地とされる北大西洋の地域の外側に視線を向けている。様々な生き方を模索するための夜の実験室としてのクラブにスポットライトを当て、新型コロナウィルスが世界中のクリエイティブなコミュニティーに打撃を与える以前にこれらの都市で発達してきた音楽のサブカルチャーを21のエッセイ、プレイリスト、写真のシークエンスで描き出す。クラブカルチャーの歴史を振り返り、クリエイティブコミュニティーの生き生きとした精神を考察し、音と夜がもたらすリズムを分析する。

The image of the DJ dragging his record case through international “non-places” and deejaying in clubs around the globe is one of the clichés of our time. Club cultures have a rich local history and are at the same time much more differentiated geographically speaking than the story of the North Atlantic axis of Detroit–Chicago–Manchester–Berlin would have us believe. This book expands the focus. It looks at ten club capitals in Africa and Europe, reporting on different scenes from the big name to the supposedly peripheral. The local music stories, the scenes, the subcultures and their global networks are reconstructed in twenty-one essays and photo sequences. The tale they tell is one of clubs as laboratories of otherness, in which people can experiment with new ways of being and assert their claim to the city. Ten Cities is a nocturnal, sound-driven journey through ten social and urban stories from 1960 through to the present.
