Chapter

Abstract

In this section, hipsterism is examined in relation to concepts such as “normcore” and “post-critical,” as well as the theories of Slavoj Žižek and Jacques Rancière, portraying a contemporary image of the hipster as dominated by an identity politics that paradoxically depoliticizes its subjects.
