David Bowie’s contribution to culture is undeniable; far-reaching, multifaceted, intersecting many fields, social scenes and artistic disciplines. If one was to take a broad view of this contribution, Planet Bowie can be viewed as the location for rich expressive languages of fashions, personas, stolen ideas, queerness, outsider perspectives, mythologies and a cast of recurring characters and themes, sounds and musical motifs. This presentation will turn attention to the way his career has been narrated across constant creative transformations that flow parallel against a consistent musical voice and through the recasting of his star image and performative self across the media and art platforms that he is found in.
