Sonke Gau, Katharina Schlieben // Spectacle, Pleasure Principle or the Carnevalesque?

A Reader on Possibilities, Experiences of Difference and Strategies of the Carnivalesque in Cultural/Political Practice

Through a suite of 16 essays, Spectacle, Pleasure Principle or the Carnivalesque? seeks to reify the culturally transgressive and revolutionary potential of the carnival, in literal and theoretical terms, through explorations of ritualistic practices, youth revolts, and acts of deliberate self display in an age of constant surveilance.
