I have more things to say about the essay „Hipster, sinecdocă. Erou al clasei de mijloc sau țap ispășitor” or “Hipster, Synecdoche. Middle Class Hero or Scapegoat”, by Ciprian State, published in 2019, in the book “Hipsteri, bobos și clase creative”, or “Hipster, Bobos and Creative Classes”.
The text itself doesn’t contain a lot of references to the status of women in the world of Romanian hipsterism, but I spent some time thinking about how I see things and I have plenty to say about it.
I was interested most of all in the following approaches: the power dynamics between male and female hipsters, what shape the romantic relationships take, what’s the attitude towards sex positivity and many others.
So how does the life of a female hipster look like and what are the dangers she faces? This is the topic of one of the new 15 videos I’m working on, as part of the EGALIS project.
