Music videos often expose the realities of local communities, circulating them across platforms and borders. Under lockdown and self-isolation, music video formats have actually enabled forms of solidarity and collectivity across different countries. This online event will look at how local realities and changing notions of public space are represented in music videos. Speakers will also reflect on how fans and communities, held together by music, are responding to the current situation, and what modes of collaboration are emerging during social distancing.
