Second Summer of Love
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Second Summer of Love, Gucci and Frieze present four new films exploring the cultural impact of acid house.
In the late 1980s, the UK saw a cultural revolution of the same magnitude as the ‘60s counterculture. A combination of a radical new music, a groundswell of youth-driven art, and, crucially, the introduction of a consciousness-altering new drug, led to the upturning of contemporary culture. In 1988, 30 years ago this year, that scene exploded, and the UK saw what we now call the Second Summer Of Love.
