MUSIC / FANS / WARFARE

Pop music fans are making a new kind of music scene that shakes up long-standing balances of power between fans and the music makers. This change calls for a new kind of relationship, resulting in an entirely new dynamic between fans and their idols through online social platforms, and this interpersonal nature causes entirely new levels of ‘hysteria’ to arise.

FAN/STERIA is a bi-monthly magazine that investigates and clarifies the various types of hysteria found in most popular music fandoms, and how their behaviour has been forever present throughout pop music eras. This includes illustrating the motivations of fans’ behaviours by deciphering music video comments, and the distortion of ‘fan wars’ that occur between fans. The launch of this magazine

is also accompanied by a set of promotional posters, along with a viral site that users can log on and orchestrate their own hysteria using the manic GIFs and sound files.
