Abstract
Questioning ‘the critical potential in popular culture’ is originally situated within marxistic research traditions and cultural studies. That is why this article asks whether this question can also be of value within late-capitalist, neo-liberal twenty-first century discourses? More specifically, we wonder if post feminism, located in a neo-liberal context and embedded in postmodern visual culture, is a possible site for critical resistance. Moreover, since post feminism is mainly discussed in the light of its ‘political’ potential in feminist tradition (e.g. Genz, 2006), it is relevant to take a closer look at its ‘critical’ potential. Does post feminism offer a critique on consumer culture, commodification and individualism as central values of a neo-liberal society and how are they articulated within popular televised discourses?
