Drag and Camp: the Aesthetic of Excess

20 Oct 2023

The event is over

‘The essence of Camp is its love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration.’ Susan Sontag’s words continue to resonate throughout the history of art, across different forms, from performance art to visual art and television. Through pastiche, distancing, and excess, camp and drag culture have shaped generations of avant-gardes. This panel explores the political and aesthetic significance of camp, at a time when the figure of the drag queen is being singled out in conservative circles.
