Brand-Mediated Ideological Edgework: Negotiating the Aestheticized Human Body on Instagram - the Case of American Apparel
This paper enhances the understanding of how brands and consumers engage in brand-mediated ideological edgework on Instagram. Our study uses a performativity lens to investigate how the fashion brand American Apparel and consumers performatively (re-)construct the aestheticized social body. We identify six brand and consumer practices of brand-mediated ideological edgework.
