Punk – A Philosophical Perspective

Session

Modern Music, Digital Production and Management

Description

One of the most authentic (in Heidegger’s sense) and diffusive manifestations is hidden in signifier PUNK. PUNK is not only a genre of a revolted youth but also embodies a more complex sentiment of thinkability. This paper will attempt to identify the neuralgic points of PUNK history as >>Deterritorialization << (Deleuze, Guattari 2009) network of the amalgam between thinking and manifestation. PUNK being one of the main cultural phenomena has often been misunderstood and misinterpreted but this paper will attempt to summarize all the main thinkers who have contemplated what is known as PUNK. Thinkers like: Mark Fisher, Nick Land, and Simon Reynolds in conceptual conversation with thinkers such as Nietzsche, Heidegger, Deleuze, Attali, and Spengler. Another dimension of the treatment that this paper will have is the exclusively aesthetic where two of the fundamental points in PUNK's thinking >>amateurism<< and >>nihilism<< will be stressed as a rejection of virtuosity and authority.
