Cool Retro Camp Trash. Aesthetic Concepts in Popular Culture

The aesthetic quality of the popular is now undisputed. In fact, it can be argued that popular culture has become the dominant cultural paradigm of our days, which takes shape in music, film, literature, social media, fashion etc. In order to meet this cultural transformation with due attention, the aesthetic concepts of popular culture are to be scrutinized for the first time from a broad academic perspective. The aim of the conference is to illuminate how aesthetic concepts of popular culture come into being, are practiced, diffuse socially and develop normative quality.
