Illusions of a body : A survey about feminism and body activism in comics (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this survey is to study how one can use comics as a medium for body activism and how it can be related to feminism. The material of choice is the book “Det kändes lungt när mina känslor dog” by Bim Eriksson, which is an illustrated autobiography. The intention is to analyse and interpret the comics “Talking Body” in a gender and body activistic perspective, by using semiotics and image analysis.  The main chapter includes a presentation of the artist Bim Eriksson. The chapter also includes a description, analysis and interpretation of the sequential story “Talking Body”. By using the concepts of body activism, body positivism and feminism I study the comics and analysed the signs which point to the meaning within the content of the comic. The study tries to understand if there is a connection between body activism and feminism within the comics of Bim Eriksson. The comic “Talking Body” as a whole, as well as the choice of specific pictures and the main character. The study concludes how the Bim Erikssons comic “Talking Body” can be interpreted as both body activist and feministic, due to its choice of artistic representation and content.
