Product Description

Dyes looks at Leipzig's Wave-Gotik-Treffen (WGT, Wave-Gothic Festival)—one of the biggest "dark" culture events in the world—through the related image and writing content that gets posted online, and how this aesthetic world intersects questions of self-optimization and vulnerability in late capitalism. In the book, image analysis, location description, interview transcripts, and contemporary cultural theory form a fragmentary account of "unconventional" style en masse within the context of a former East German city actively repositioning itself as post-reunification business destination.
Text is in German.
