Today in our Television Genre lecture, Ms. Lecturer showed us examples of bricolage in the post-modern moment.This refers to the way in which cultural entities today appropriate and rearticulate signs from former movements.
In greater English sense, taking a whole bunch of popular culture and sticking it all over yourself. Examples of this phenomenom are Lady Gaga, the punk movement, MacGyver and the modern-day hipster.
I couldn't help smiling to myself. When hipster was mentioned, the audience began to murmur almost knowingly, and most of us bowed our heads in shame. We all know how the saying goes - if the dress shirt fits , wear it.
Or something like that.
