–CAMPstyleNOW!–

WHAT:

  1. CAMP as an aesthetic in which something has appeal because of its bad taste or ironic value
  2. CAMP as ostentatious, overemphasized, affected, theatrical, effeminate or homosexual behaviour
  3. CAMP as love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration.
  4. CAMP as something esoteric, something of a private code, a badge of identity even, among small urban cliques. So…
  5. CAMP especially as way of dressing, of making up, of introducing yourself

WHY:

  1. because MORE IS MORE
  2. because the point of Camp is to dethrone the serious. Camp is playful, anti-serious. More precisely, Camp involves a new, more complex relation to “the serious.” One can be serious about the frivolous, frivolous about the serious.
  3. because triggers creativity and bravery
  4. because is good because is awful
  5. because makes life a little bit more easy

WHERE

WHEN

  1. in Ancient Greece when male actors performed female characters in Eschilos, Sophocles and Euripides’s tragedies; during the Renaissance, with the mannerist artists like Pontormo, Rosso, and Caravaggio, or the extraordinarily theatrical painting of Georges de La Tour, or Euphuism in literature; inthe late 17th and early 18th century, because of that period’s extraordinary feeling for artifice, for surface, for symmetry, it is the great period of Camp: Pope, Congreve, Walpole
  2. my focus is on the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and nowadays
  3. 24 hours a day
  4. 7 days a week
  5. it’s always time for set your mind free
