The Hipster as an Entrepreneur of the Self

  • Wes Hill


In this section, the hipster is examined in terms of the neoliberal subject as an entrepreneur of the self. It is traced in relation to alternative culture in the 1990s, the inauguration of creative industries policies, art movements such as relational aesthetics and the Young British Artists (YBAs), and contemporary practices aligned with the cultural politics of global capitalism.
