Event Details

Inheritance has never been a taken-for-granted progression, especially from the myriad stories and experiences in the production and reception of Hong Kong popular cultures. Between coloniality and nationality, locality and transnationality, high and low, niche and mass as well as decent and obscene, Hong Kong popular cultures have been struggling along contesting boundaries in screen, sound, linguistic and performing media. If to inherit is to re-situate Hong Kong popular cultures from the intersecting contours of geopolitics and histories, to think and imagine beyond such confines may help to recharge the momentum in reconfiguring our pop cultural imaginaries and for resisting against the idea that Hong Kong popular cultures are dying.

對香港流行文化的發展而言,傳承從來不是一種理所當然的預期。香港流行文化的生產和傳播過程,一直在殖民性與國族性、本土與跨國、高雅與低俗、小眾與普及以及正派與不雅等對立矛盾之中,在光影、音韻、文字及表演等媒體邊界上掙扎徘徊。假若傳承的機遇,是建基於為香港流行文化在地緣政治和歷史發展的歧義上另闢蹊徑,重新審視其生產方式、傳播方法及發展源流期望能為消亡中的香港流行文化,注入想像及批判的新動力。
