Dash Snow, art hipster
The porn star mustache and aviator glasses came up several times in What Was The Hipster, an N+1 discussion examining the hipster at NYU Saturday. Nothing particularly profound was uttered on the subject of accessory identification but people at least sounded smart while talking about it. Panelists each expressed reservations about hipsterism as an expanding but essentially empty consumer class, and observed the difficulty in even identifing core characteristics due to its pervasiveness. Following the structure of all good academic investigations, talk about the “death” of hipsterism took place. No conclusions were reached on that subject. A full transcript from the panel will be available online shortly.
