What is (a) Punk? For our latest call-for-submissions, Video Out invited works that address, identify, engage with, and challenge this defiant, idealistic, and problematic label. History influences aesthetics, and aesthetics are representative of beliefs, values, ideologies. What does it mean to be punk today?
