Concept of Self in Avant-Pop Literature


  • Mojca Krevel University of Ljubljana



Self, Avant-Pop Literature, postmodernity


The treatise is an investigation into the construction of character and understanding of  subjectivity in general as it appears in the literature of writers associated with the Avant-Pop movement. As a movement, the Avant-Pop emerges at the beginning of the 1990’s – the time of substantial social, cultural and economic changes conditioning deeper changes of basic Geistesgeschichte paradigms marking the rise of a new, postmodern era. This article on the one hand examines the paradigm of subjectivity by discussing examples from Avant-Pop literary production in the light of prevailing theoretical opinions and speculations on postmodernity, and – on the other hand – connects the findings to broader social, cultural and technological aspects of contemporary living.
