Dancing Youth

Inspired by the Rineke Dijkstra‘s series on youth called “The KrazyHouse” she’s been documenting since the late 90s, Erik Madigan Heck, the photographer and director, invited bunch Brooklyn kids and clubgoers to reimagine that in his new project : “Detroit switch back the city”, also the name of the Mike Dehnert’s tech house classic, the kids are dancing to in the video.

“Dijkstra’s project was one of the first contemporary works of art I saw in high school,” says Heck, who reveals the polarizing nature of the club environment as a space for exhibitionism as well as anonymity. “I saw it at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and stared at it for hours just watching the people.”
