PopCamp – Fabio Cleto – marcos y marcos

“Il dandismo nella cultura di massa, la sublimazione del Kitsch, una strategia di sopravvivenza nella maschera, nell’ironia, nel tradimento delle intenzioni. Un travestimento psichico, un modo di percepire e deformare il mondo, di renderlo spettacolo nella perversione scenica, nella celebrazione dell’aberrante  e dell’eccentrico. Un discorso elitario, elusivo, inarrestabile, tanto pervasivo quanto indefinibile. Ecco il Camp: un irriducibile eccetera.”

“The dandyism in the folk culture, the sublimation of Kitsch, a strategy of surviving inside the mask, inside irony, inside the betrayal of the intentions.  A psychological disguise, a way of perceiving and deforming  the world, a way of making it as a show with the stage perversion, with the celebration of the freak and the eccentric. An elitist, evasive, irreversible subject, so pervading that it is indefinable. That is Camp: an  unshakeable “…and so on…”.

These are the words that buil up the back-cover of the two books “PopCamp”, Fabio Cleto, marcos y marcos, 2008.

(The two volumes deal wih the whole world of Camp Style, and my pourpose is writing down some ideas found in the book and share those with you all!)
