Zur symbolischen Konstruktion von Anerkennung im Spannungsfeld zwischen Subkultur und Mehrheitsgesellschaft
Gangstarap-images recently have become an important part of the German everyday entertainment culture. Underlying a mode of construction shaped by a current discourse about migrant masculinities and juvenile delinquency, these images derive from references to the speakers ethnic and class-background and their enactment of certain body norms. By approaching these cultural forms from an intersectional perspective, we show two (complementary) ways of interpretation: Thus they can be seen as a way to update hegemonic masculinity by the speakers, as well as references to be used in a scandalizing manner for the cause of a symbolic ‘class war’.
