Fabulous: madison moore + jean paul paula in conversation

  • Glamcult 274 Westerdok Amsterdam, NH, 1013 BH Netherlands (map)

“He literally wrote the book about fabulousness” reads the headline of the New York Times article on madison moore’s book ‘Fabulous: The Rise of the Beautiful Eccentric’. In honor of his research to queer culture and nightlife, Dance with Pride and Glamcult invite moore for a conversation with JeanPaul Paula, moderated by Souhayla Ou-Oumar.

madison moore is a professor and DJ. He is a resident DJ and creative director at OPULANCE, an art-collective and queer techno party. Teaching in fields such as Queer and Performance studies at Kings College in London, he brings his experience from nightlife into the classroom.

JeanPaul Paula is a stylist, creative director and DJ. His work is featured in Dazed & Confused, Wonderland and Glamcult amongst others. In 2017 he created his first exhibition: ‘This. My body a work on modern day masculinity.’

From Fabulous:

“I’m suggesting that fabulousness ups the ante by doing the opposite. Instead of reaching back into time and imagining a relationship to the past, fabulousness imagines what life could be like in the future and yanks that vision to the present. To the now. Style affords us the potential to dream, to inhabit another world, not “in theory” but in practice.” 


August 3, 17.00-19.00
Glamcult Studio, Westerdok 274, Amsterdam.
