Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay – Notes on ‘Camp’ (https://bit.ly/2qQVEm1) – was the basis for the 2019 Met Gala (and subsequent exhibition, both titled ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’). The essay goes through the various ways in which Sontag interprets ‘camp’, where it comes from, how it can be seen and how it is reproduced. Each ‘episode’ will be based around the note to which it corresponds and topical, queer pop culture.
