define a new *punk

Recent decades have seen the emergence of micro-genres or movements, that defined their own esthetics, often through combination of previous cultural expressions.

A classic example is Vaporwave, “a microgenre of electronic music, a visual art style, and an Internet meme”. Other examples:

  • Seapunk, a subculture that originated on Tumblr in 2011. It is associated with an aquatic-themed style of fashion, 3D net art, iconography, and allusions to popular culture of the 1990s.
  • Witch house, an occult-themed electronic music microgenre and visual aesthetic.
  • Solarpunk, a movement that encompasses a multitude of media such as literature, art, architecture, fashion, music, and games.

Examples of new genres that students could create:

  • Sapin Punk, a modernized internet version of the Style Sapin.
