This project’s focus is upon the hipster phenomenon, and how this can be seen and understood in a contemporary context. The project embarks on the grounds of a definition, a historical walkthrough of the development of different subcultural groups, and an assessment of the hipster group’s use of signs and place in society. A discussion about the contemporary hipster gathers the questions about what the hipster is and establishes the role of the hipster in a contemporary society. The investigation of the hipster includes theories concerning Roland Barthes semiology and Pierre Bourdieu´s distinction on the judgment of taste. Furthermore the report includes subcultural theories by Dick Hebdige, thus enabling us to note the increasing possibility of the hipsters influence on society.
