[Commlist] Subcultures and their Mediated Representations - Free day-symposium

Fri Sep 06 15:14:43 GMT 2019

A group of University of the Arts London post-graduate research students, in conjunction with Centre for Fashion Curation (CfFC) are hosting a one-day symposium titled /Subcultures and mediated representations/. Topics will include how music fanzines documented and transmitted the acid house music scene, the Marquis de Sade’s influence on British punk, myth and membership of the Northern Soul scene, using black language and musical expression to explore the relationships between social and cultural ways of understanding identity formation through ideas of ‘high’, ‘low’ and ‘popular’ culture and Adam Ant’s performance personas, as dandy, highway man and Prince Charming as an entry point for discussion about military identities, masculinity and popular culture. This symposium will be ideally placed to kick-start a year-long series of events under the banner /Subcultures: Then and Now/ (physical and digital exhibitions, symposiums, film screenings) as part of the CfFC’s 25th anniversary celebration of/Streetstyle: from sidewalk to catwalk/, a seminal fashion exhibition staged at the Victoria & Albert Museum in November 1994.
