Event description

Description

Following the death of David Bowie, his last two videos, 'Blackstar' and 'Lazarus', were widely interpreted as containing clues to his illness. This lecture, based on Will Brooker's unique, year-long research project on Bowie and his monograph Forever Stardust, demonstrates that death has been a running theme throughout Bowie's work since the 1960s. It reexamines 'Blackstar' and 'Lazarus' as complex explorations of 'passing on' -- not just of mortality but of continued life and legacy. David Jones is gone, Brooker argues, but 'Bowie' is still alive.
