Lulu, and self-image among women today.
Through the character of Lulu and the music of Alban Berg’s “Lulu suite”, this presentation throws a light on the modern phenomenon of young women promoting themselves on social media. Is Instagram now the place where society displays itself – for me? For an audience? For men? For women?
The literary figure of Lulu and her embodiment in one of the most important works in 20th-century music ought offer a good opportunity for critical reflection on the images of women and men contained within those two sources, both in a socio-historical context and in relation to personal experiences and present-day values.
