Detroit 2009 is a publication from Dashwood Books by Ari Marcopoulos produced on different newsprint paper stocks, employing the city’s industrial ruins as backdrop for a portrait of two teenage noise musicians. Marcopoulos’ video documenting their performance is featured in this year’s Whitney Biennial. The stills in this book, shot simultaneously, work to flesh out its environs, weaving a loose narrative around familiar lines: domesticity, alienation and the markers of youthful identity.
