Fringe of the Fringe | Queering Punk Media History


Theorists and artists from Jack Halberstam to Peter Rehberg consider the fruitful cross-pollination of video, punk, queerness and gender politics

Since the 1970s, the medium of video has been closely associated with subcultural and countercultural movements. Art and music videos in particular have showed great subversive potential, as artists and musicians use the medium to explore and transgress social norms and gender stereotypes. The essays in this publication consider artistic strategies in the context of the history of punk and its offshoots, combining scholarly opinions from the fields of art history, queer theory, media studies, gender studies, postcolonial studies and cultural studies alongside field reports from the practice of alternative archives and visual essays.
Authors include: Kathrin Dreckmann, Marina Grzinic, Jack Halberstam, Josefine Hetterich, Angela McRobbie, Jennifer Ramme, Peter Rehberg, Marion Schulze, Elfi Vomberg and Katharina Wiedlack.
