kitsch. Kitschy World

Los Angeles Review of Books (LARB)

"Kitsch — as an aesthetic, as a political manifestation, as a sociological and philosophical embodiment — satisfies its consumer’s expectations in the most swift and facile of ways; it connects thoughts and feelings so fluidly and slyly that Newt Gingrich can respond to a reporter’s questions about national gun violence statistics with something to the effect of, the numbers may say it’s going down, but many Americans feel it’s going up, and have his audience accept this denial of fact as some kind of felt truth."

【崔健《光凍》奪台灣金曲獎,這是一張怎樣的專輯?】http://bit.ly/1Y5Wp26
西方喜欢通过老套的二元论来看待日本艺术,比如石景庭院的禅意美学和Hello Kitty这样的欢快刻奇(kitsch)。法国梅茨的两个日本展览对此予以修正




第27屆台灣金曲獎最佳演唱「錄音」專輯獎由出道30年的大陸歌手崔健專輯《光凍》奪下。這張名為《光凍》的崔健新專輯,以是一個高度隱喻化的意象,多義乃至於無法定義。然而一一聽來,九首歌與之恰恰相反,隱喻被機械地操作著,變成了套路,索然寡味。我始終相信這種落差不是因為崔健的音樂修為,更多是因為他那一代人在當下的尷尬,尷尬而不自知,於是更加尷尬……http://bit.ly/1Y5Wp26

死不斷氣的漫長的壯懷激烈音樂,完全是一種自我感動,說得嚴厲一點,是Kitsch。

'Strangely, the terror in fairy stories has become one of the few aspects of the original tales to find favour with contemporary audiences. Those who have seen Angelina Jolie Pitt in 'Maleficent' or Kirsten Stewart in 'Snow White and the Huntsman' will have seen the violent darkening of the form.'

In the 1970s, his most active decade as a feature film director, he made a series of biographical films about artists and rock operas, like his adaptation of the Who’s “Tommy,” which were admired by some for their delirious excesses and dismissed by others as vulgar kitsch.

學到kitsch 一解
辛波絲卡文字的雙重性格其實來自於:她大量使用平凡、常見的字彙甚至陳腔濫調的片語,但是她使用它們的方式是如此獨到、具原創性,以至於完全顛覆了這些常見、媚俗(kitsch)的語言元素,賦予它們全新、相反或自相矛盾的意義。如同她喜愛拼貼,辛波絲卡也把文字從日常的用法及語境中剪下,讓它成為一個獨立的個體,然後把它錯置到另一個背景,讓它產生令人錯愕、尷尬、驚嚇或會心一笑的全新意義。
The introduction describes Nevsky Prospekt, the central avenue of St. Petersburg, and its population at different times of the day. The narrator revels in the delights of the street, but he is filled with Poshlost, a Russian concept akin to kitsch, defined by Russian-English historian [D.S. Mirsky] as "self-satisfied inferiority."

過去三十年中,中國讀者對米蘭·昆德拉的解讀或誤讀最具代表性的,可能是對“Kitsch”一詞的理解。“Kitsch”源自德語,原泛指迎合低級趣味的事物,它頻繁地出現在昆德拉的小說《不能承受的生命之輕》中。在小說裡昆德拉這樣形容“Kitsch”:“當看見草坪上奔跑的孩子,由Kitsch引起了兩行'前後緊密相連'的熱淚:第一行是說:看見了孩子在草地上奔跑,多好啊;第二行是說,和所有的人類在一起,被草地上奔跑的孩子們所感動,多好啊。”該詞最早在1987年韓少功翻譯的版本中被譯作“媚俗”。但這一翻譯又被景凱旋所推翻,取而代之採用“刻奇”,兼有意譯和音譯。前者認為“Kitsch”代表著世俗、喧囂的市井文化,後者則認為“Kistch”代表的是掩蓋現實,刻意崇高的做作表現。作為該詞最早的翻譯者之一,景凱旋先生認為國人對昆德拉的誤讀一定程度上就是因為"Kitsch"在一些譯本中被誤譯為“媚俗”,對此他解釋道:“Kitsch一詞在西方,是有媚俗的意思,即討好大眾,但昆德拉重新解讀了它,意思是指價值的過度,倫理的過度。他的作品其實是要反對人們所認為的高尚的價值,反崇高、反激情、反意義,這恰恰是欣賞生活的世俗性、日常性。”當昆德拉反對“Kitsch”時,他所攻訐的並非是媚俗的文化,相反地,他認為對比起以“崇高”為假面的情感,媚俗的才是真實的,並因真實而珍貴。
