Description

This course will explore the complicated dynamics between popular culture and politics in Poland during the last two decades of communism. Did the alternative rock culture undermine and destroy the communist government? Did the prominent bands (Maanam, Republika, Prefekt) express the general mood of the population, which was ready to attack the existing political structure? Did the communist government “look the other way” and tolerate subversive activities of music, cabaret, and film artists sensing its own inability to control the course of events? Lyrics and performances by rock bands, cartoons, texts by stand-up comedians, children’s films, and graffiti will be studied and analyzed.
