Ankoku butoh is an original Japanese dance form that emerged in the mid to late 1950s in Tokyo. Co-founded by Hijikata Tatsumi (1928–1986) and Ohno Kazuo (1906–2010), it was an artistic response to social conditions as the nation of Japan underwent radical shifts in Imperial Japan’s engagement in the Asia-Pacific war (1931–1945), defeat and US-led Occupation of Japan (1945–1952) and the US-Japan alliance formation within the cold war division system.

Sustainable urban planning is to be understood as a communicative process, which interlinks city architecture, technology, city district management and social infrastructure of neighbourhoods. The focus on sustainability brings up the question of under which discourse conditions architects and city planners can get into conversation with other urban actors, citizens, local administrators and politicians, and which cultural heritage should be preserved. Looking at the style of discourse in urban communication brings also its socio-cultural modalities into focus.

 

Urban Discourse: City space, city language, city planning

This lecture examines the representational choices made in neo-Victorian life-writing in reconstructing and re-imagining a historical case of transgender: James Barry, senior colonial medical officer of the British army from 1813 to 1859 and a pioneer of medical reform. Known for his pugnacious, iconoclastic personality during his lifetime, he became the object of intense speculation after his death in 1865 when the charwoman who had prepared his body for burial challenged the medical and military establishment about his sex.

Drawing on research to be published in a forthcoming 33⅓ Series book, this paper considers some of the cinematic influence imbued in post-punk band Siouxsie and the Banshees’ ninth studio album Peepshow. Throughout the record, explicit references to films including Nicholas Roeg’s Eureka (1983) and Tobe Hooper’s The Funhouse (1981) are made, as well as lyrical references and musical allusions to technical aspects of film including shadows, mise en scéne and the staging of protagonists.

In this paper I examine a decade of collaborations with Pedro Almodóvar, exploring ways in which a direct engagement with those who ‘make’ culture can assist in understanding how that culture is constructed and consumed.
