Sample text

Yet, the shift towards ‘consumer-citizenship’ that I have outlined in this chapter does not merely unite the distinct discourses of citizenship and consumerism, but actively refigures their terms. In their joint performative articulation, the materialisation of the effects that they name reveals new forms of belonging and rights. In the following chapters, I draw on and develop this chapter’s themes of temporality, potential, choice, individuality and cultural difference. In Chapter 3, I present the findings of my study of advertisements and explore how the categories of sexual, ‘racial’, ethnic, class and national difference function as a visual currency for the reproduction of white, Western, classed, male selfhood and rights of belonging.

In effect, the concept of ‘culture’ is performatively produced in a moment of assumed transparency, recognition and equivalence or interchangeability between distinct cultures. These cultures cannot hold the status of identity prior to the process of recognition and naming. Yet their pre-constituted identity is required to generate that very concept of ‘culture’ which names them. The model of culture that Stolcke (1995) describes is produced within and through a European framework constituted by the historical development of the modern nation-state in colonialism and capitalism.

However, the particular form that this originality will take, that which defines the very ‘individuality’ of the person, can only be articulated by that same person. Yet they are authorised and enabled to begin to search for it by the very qualities of unique selfhood for which they are searching. Indeed, this potential and individuality will only be realised, materialised or recognisable as such in the moment of contact, articulation and definition. Taylor (1994) goes on to argue that such processes of self-actualisation are dialogical in nature in that they are reliant on contact and dialogue with others.
