Notes on Vamp

0 Comments 🕔24 Oct 2014

Dazzling to the eye with a dark, fecund mystery that's laced with myth and history, 'the vamp' is omnipresent in contemporary culture. While her roots can be traced to goddesses synonymous with seduction and ruin, in this century, she has been iconically codified through fashion and film. There are the sartorial choices that influence our understanding of vamp, and then there are the femme fatales onscreen, who embody the archetype in image and action. "A sensibility (as distinct from an...

"It's too frightening to be the brazen hussy, the woman who travels, who wants to go where men go and see what men see, who wears their clothes and appropriates their pleasures and mannerisms, who carries a razor, who has a hustle of her own going, who dresses to attract attention to herself...She is not free, but she deserves to be." -- Pat Califia By the time I was 15, I knew I could never cut...

The Greeks have at least four different ways of expressing “love”. They saw it fit to make the distinction between expressing your devotion for you mom, and the pizza you just put in your mouth. But I speak English, and presumably so do you, and presumably-er, you throw around the word at least eighty times a day because it can literally describe anything from slight affection to that thing that goes wrong that makes for...

The History & Arts of the Dominatrix: An Interview with Anne O Nomis

You would be hard-pressed to ignore the never-so-subtle influence that The Dominatrix has had on western culture. From Thierry Mugler’s infamous catwalk designs to the spillover cat suits of 1960’s TV heroines and the archetypes in between, The Dominatrix is one of the most popular images of women’s sexuality and also one of the most misunderstood and hush-hushed roles to date. Enter Anne O Nomis, author and creator of The History...

Revolutionary feminist theorist, activist and pop culture critic bell hooks is holding court again at The New School, inviting a few heavy hitters to sit down and dialogue with her about race, class, gender, sexuality, contemporary culture and feminism.

Sound & Vision: How To Art On A Budget

1 Comment 🕔02 Oct 2014

Let's get straight to the point: the purpose of this column will be making art (in this particular case music videos) when you got no bucks.
