Audiovisualities, Controversies And Pop Activism On Anitta's Digital Networks
Date and time:
15:00 to 15:30 on 09/03/2020
My work focuses on the links between musical audiovisualities, activism and digital culture. Proposing that video clips should not be apprehended as isolated units, since they are linked to different socio-technical networks that are redefining their narratives and meanings, I aim to analyze the controversies surrounding Brazilian singer Anitta’s video clips, posts and Instagram lives, in order to contribute to the discussion on the forms of “pop activism” in the context of the “platform culture”.
