Narrative des Todes in Style und Sound Performances der Popkultur

In: Haller, Melanie; Helmers, Traute; Mallon, Stefanie (Ed.): Der Tod und das Ding. Textile Materialitäten im Kontext der Vergänglichkeit. Waxmann 2021.

This contribution explores the resonances and connections between body-dress-sound. The question is how narratives of death are expressed in pop culture, fashion, and sound performances through bodies, textiles, and sounds.
