London firm Dorothy has designed a visual representation of the history of disco, mapped out on the schematics of a Klipschorn speaker.
Disco Love Blueprint: A History of Disco is a poster celebrating 600 musicians, DJs producers, clubs and record labels viewed as pivotal in the history of disco:
Disco Love Blueprint takes a voyage from the Black and gay underground scene through the modern day and features departures into Italo, cosmic disco, regional scenes and all the way up to the modern day.
Dorothy, which recently contributed to the London Acid City: 30 Years of Staying Up Forever exhibition, mapped out the history of disco on the circuit diagram of a Klipschorn speaker, suggesting this was used in part for its role in The Loft’s legendary sound system.
The poster is a metallic silver screen print measuring 60×80 centimeters (roughly, though not precisely, 24″ x 32″). It is in stock and available for £40 from the Dorothy store.
