Eurotrash Between Trash Culture and the Avant-Garde: The Strange Case of Walerian Borowczyk

Goddard, M 2008, 'Eurotrash Between Trash Culture and the Avant-Garde: The Strange Case of Walerian Borowczyk', in: Rubbish, Waste and Litter: Culture and its Refus(e)als. Tadeusz Rachwal ed. Warsaw: Academica., pp.270-281.

Abstract

An examination of the cinematic career of Walerian Borowczyk as taking place between avant-garde experimentation and trash/exploitation culture. The essay argues that the relative neglect accorded to Borowczyk's work is a testament to the devluation of popular culture in European and especially Polish contexts as a disposable cultural waste product.
