~Psychick Cinema~ Nuclear Bohemianism: Vernacular Surrealism in the Age of Radioactive Slime

Short url: 

https://squ.at/r/36f4

The 1980s was a golden age of excess, debauchery, and decadency. Casting our glance to the margins of mainstream culture at this time, we shall attend to the birth a new breed of renegade youths: the Mutant. Slouching towards Bethlehem, this warped youth-culture sounded a 'sublime Trumpet full of strange piercing sounds.' These Neuro-romantics were content to navigate the Futuristic World of Late Capitalism as an Ocean of Rubble & Ruin.

On Aug 13th, the Psychic Cinema returns to examine these surrealist poets of the modern age and their radioactive drug culture. Christian Greer will introduce the topic with a expansive lecture. His talk will be followed by a [High Definition] screening of The Toxic Avenger (1984).
