Summary

We may be living in a material world, but Angela McRobbie pinpoints a "new materialism" inIn the Culture Society. She provides a lively, incisive look at how different artistic and cultural practices develop in contemporary consumer culture, by examining the new populism of young artists such as Damien Hirst and Tracy Emin and the proliferation of underground forms of dance music. McRobbie explores how musicians such as Tricky, Talvin Singh, and Goldie have incorporated Black and Asian social history into a distinctive sound. She also investigates the relationship between cultural production and feminism through the new sexualities of teen girls' magazines.
