Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD says
Join us at MOCAD to celebrate the release of Marie Staggat's "313ONELOVE" her extensive pictorial that captures many of Detroit's house and techno luminaries.

We are proud to announce the US release of the Berlin-based photographer Marie Staggat and her enigmatic “313ONELOVE” book – an extensive picture love letter to Detroit’s influential electronic music scene.

With more than 170 portraits, her book captures some of the most influential techno and house artists from the Motor City, plus a string of profound stories and quotes from selected artists on their hometown and its rich musical history. Her images are not just regular portraits of the artists in their living environment. Instead, Staggat decided to shoot close-up pictures of each DJ, musician and producer, as their hands and ears represent the fundamental “tools” for all their creative output. Detroit has been an inspiration to and definition of music history since the late 1950's with a wide range of styles from jazz, soul, funk, rock and hip-hop. The latest heavy contribution to global music culture has been house and techno – two genres that would not exist the way they do without the groundbreaking artists Staggat features in her book.

Furthermore, her publication is not only a heartfelt dedication to electronic music, it is also a charity project that will support Detroit based children of all ages, who all do share a strong passion and love for music. Featured artists in “313ONELOVE” are Amp Fiddler, Carl Craig, Claude Young, Chez Damier, Detroit Grand Pubahs, Dez Andres, Juan Atkins, Kenny Larkin, Kevin Saunderson, Mad Mike Banks, Mike Huckaby, Moodymann (Kenny Dixon Jr.), Marcellus Pittman, Anthony Shake Shakir and Robert Hood amongst others.

The book will be available in all Carhartt WIP stores and at this launch event.
