Look at That Fucking Hipster

Chapter 1

New!

From: Decolonize Hipsters

$2.50

In Look at That Fucking Hipster, Pierrot provides a history of modern subcultures and where the hipster phenomenon arose from to its peak to its eventual decline post-2016. The chapter explores topics such as social and cultural identity, subcultures, consumerism and ‘affinity marketing’ as authenticity, the fetishization and appropriation of Black, Indigenous, and working-class stylings, and how all of this perpetuated economic, cultural, and/or racial inequality.
