Bodies, doings, and gendered ideals in Swedish graffiti
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
Drawing from extensive fieldwork among graffiti writers in Sweden this article investigates gendered identity work and its consequences. It points to how potentially inclusive aspects of disembodied subcultural Performances-that identities are negotiated through the material representation of the writer rather than on basis of the physical body-nevertheless work exclu-dingly, especially so in terms of gender. This is so because identity work in graffiti revolves around a re-embodiment of identities through normative notions of the able, male and invisible body.
