Goodbye to Morrissey: An Essay on Art and Morals

Volkmar Mühleis

Grafische Cel, 2021


Goodbye to Morrissey is a case study by Volkmar Mühleis about what it means in Pop culture to place trust in someone, to be their fan. As such, it deals on the surface with the political and ethical conflict exemplified by the swing of the singer Morrissey to the radical right. On a deeper level, it treats the fundamental question accompanying Morrissey’s shift: the relationship between art and morality, idol and idolizer, critique and myth. Superficiality and profundity – Pop and philosophy – illuminate each other in one provocative essay.
