New York’s Met Museum showcases the power of camp in new exhibition

Today 11:44 GMT

Camp both high (the ballet, Caravaggio) and low (superheroes, Strictly) will be the subject of this year’s major fashion exhibition at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

This issue of the ‘cultural appropriation’ of camp was addressed by Bolton, who acknowledged the grievance felt by those who believe Sontag downplayed their connection to camp. “Camp began as a private code in the gay community,” he said, adding that he hoped to engage with this debate in a nuanced way.
