Title In Pursuit of Recognition : Translating “Chile” within the Hip-hop Zone
Author(s) Lindholm, Susan
Date 2014
English abstract
My paper that relates to the subtheme ”imagination of space” traces the impact of structural discrimination on what will be called spatial memory. While earlier research on Hip-hop in Sweden has traced the ways in which structural discrimination leads to (spatial) solidarity, that is, the creation of Hip-hop as a collective culture (“samlingskultur”) within low-income immigrant-dominated suburbs, this paper interrogates the impact of such discrimination on spatial memory expressed through glocal Hip-hop culture. By focusing on Swedish Hip-hop artists who create a connection with “Chile” through their lyrics, videos and re-membrances, it argues that present marginalization can result in an in-betweenness of spatial memory that is translated – that is, carried across from one place in time to the other – through Hip-hop. “Chile” is thereby translated as both a conflict-laden national space in history that can be approached and criticized from a distance, as well as an imagined space outside of history that is designated as the place of belonging. The paper will thus also discuss the role of spatial distance and proximity in formulating societal critique through Hip-hop.
