Popular, tele-visual and screen cultures have changed after 9/11. The attack was spectacular; its violence was obscene. Through global media it was captured live and disseminated to all parts of the world. And we watched. Many fields of post-9/11 popular, tele-visual and screen cultures changed substantially, other subtly. Television shows like 24, Battlestar Galactica, Family Guy and American Dad, and movies like Team America: World Police tackled 9/11 head on and represented the post-9/11 world in complex and symbolic ways. Television shows like Friends, How I Met Your Mother and Dollhouse, and a Vogue: Italia fashion shoot grappled with the post-9/11 world more indirectly through absences, presences and symbolic representations of cities and security. Terrorism has been said to resemble pornography¿we know it when we see it. And it can be difficult for witnesses to look away. Where the pornography of terrorism has been met by the sexualization of the post-9/11 world we encounter an unbearable and shockingly spectacular event, the ultimate event, perhaps even the ¿mother¿ of all events. 9/11 was spectacular; its violence was obscene. Through global media it was captured live and disseminated to all parts of the world. And we watched.
