States of Excess and Undress: Fashion, Performance, and Taboo in Nightlife
As Roland Barthes has written in Fashion, A Strategy of Desire, "The body which is completely covered can be deemed erotic by a society. Eroticism is linked to contrast in norms in any one society." In this vein, to what extent can the dominant perceptions of nightlife and queer-friendly spaces as overly eroticized and overly hedonistic be attributed to the essentially non-normative, subcultural natures of these events and environments? Panelists will consider how nightlife art practices can affect the fundamental pathways for inscribing or erasing dichotomies between acceptable and taboo behaviors and lifestyles.

as part of THE FUN Conference on the Social Practice of Nightlife
