RiRi (Re)Vision: a score for Rihanna's "S&M" by Tracy Rosenthal

RiRi (Re)Vision: a score for Rihanna's "S&M" by Tracy Rosenthal

$ 18.00

RiRi (Re)Vision is a work of wild theory and a score for Rihanna's 2011 music video, "S&M." In content, it dissects the mutually reinforcing logic of feminine representation and the commodity, fame and sadomasochism, navigating the pleasures and dangers attendant to the consumption of visual culture and the doublely-Othered masochist. In form, it collides poetry and criticism, mapping high theory onto "low" culture to produce an alternative discourse that is a tense, tenuous union of the two. Through this rambunctious, queer(ed) scholarship, the work mines the powerful affective interstices of race, gender, and pornography at work in the surfaces of pop.
