Nocturnal City: London - Barcelona | Somerset House Studios

Documentary / Interview

How can new structures and DIY scenes support and preserve artistic creation? Hyperdub's Ikonika, visual artist Mungo, DJ collective SIREN, Marija Bozinovska Jones, Aleix Fernandez of Onionlab, and Barcelona's Sunny Graves feature in the latest edition of Nocturnal City exploring the interplay between London and Barcelona. Cotch International and Resis'dance explore how new spaces contribute to making club culture more accessible and inclusive from Peckham's community record store, Rye Wax.

Nocturnal City is a series of events running throughout 2017 exploring the state of nightlife and its influence. By connecting discussions in London with other world cities, the series explores how urban hubs and communities can learn from each other to create new cultural standards. From algorithmic dance parties to all-female techno collectives, the first virtual nightclubs to the queer club kids and their audacious fashion; a celebration of the scenes, the sounds and the first tube home.
