What was punk in 1978 and what is it today? What aesthetics does the punk use to shape his / her identity? Are sexism and racism also part of punk? Do no-future-nihilism and anarchism inevitably lead to violence? Is the anti-ideology of punk spontaneous and sincere or staged? What is the role of the media in the cultural-commercial-political manipulation of a movement as punk?
The big Do-It-Yourself debate is part of the Naughty Kids - Punk in Antwerp 1978-2018 exhibition. Concert organizer Anneke Chips, punk writer Didi De Paris, slam poet Lisette Ma Neza, sociologist Pascal Gielen, multimedia artist Anyuta Wiazemsky and Ersi Varveri & Gijs Waterschoot of artist collective The Pink House will tacle the punk clichés. It will be a heated debate, not to be missed in the bad joke that is daily life.
