Goth 101: A History of the Postpunk and Goth Subculture, 1978 - 1992, An Illustrated Lecture with Andi Harriman
Date: Thursday, July 14th
Time: 7pm
Admission: $12
Location: Morbid Anatomy Museum, 424 Third Avenue, 11215 Brooklyn

From its DIY beginnings in the late 70s to its demise at the turn of the 90s, the postpunk and goth subculture flourished for over a decade with its dark and dramatic aesthetics. Goth's DNA is a diverse and complex one with roots in nostalgia and imagined realities, mainly derived from the macabre and uncanny. Influenced by an androgynous Bowie, the dramatic romance of Victorian literature and B-movie horror films (just to name a few), the progenitors of the scene generated the perfect concoction of atmospheric sounds, haunting lyrics and spooky visuals. This lecture will address pressing questions such as "what is goth?" and explore the extensive timeline of the scene's history. Join us in this illustrated survey of goth and postpunk - a lecture for diehard fans and newbies alike - spanning the bands, places and influences that contributed to the birth and longevity of the subculture.

Andi Harriman is a 1980s music anthropologist as she writes, researches and documents this specific decade in history. She is the author of Some Wear Leather, Some Wear Lace: A Worldwide Compendium of Postpunk and Goth in the 1980s that has gained national and international recognition since its release in 2014. Harriman currently holds a BFA in Material Studies and Creative Writing from Virginia Commonwealth University and an MFA in Jewelry + Objects from Savannah College of Art and Design. She is a contributing writer to Post-punk.com and Lethal Amounts' blog, a radio host, a prolific DJ and runs a monthly event in Brooklyn called Synthicide.

Tickets are non-refundable unless the event is canceled.
