2017 (English)In: TOTalitarian ARTs: the Visual Arts, Fascism(s) and Mass-society / [ed] M. Epstein, F. Orsitto and A. Righi, Newcastle upon Tyne: Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2017, 1, 350-373 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This essay explores the online video activism of neo-fascist groups in Sweden. The primary aim is to provide a comprehensive overview of more than 200 video clips produced and disseminated on You Tube by five organizations. Furthermore, the chapter discusses how the video content relates to the political strategies of the extreme right and to the social mobilization and recruitment (possibilities) of far-right activists. In order to relate the online video material to the politics and the sociology of the extreme right, the chapter focuses on the relationship beween mediated communication and the socio-cultural context of far right-wing politics (cf. Fairclough 1995). This implies that the video material must be understood in relation to a broader framework of contemporary far right-wing ideology and political action. Furhermore, through an understanding of video communication on online platforms such as You Tube as a way of performing and articulating “different modes of audience address” (van Zoonen, Vis and Mihelj 2010, 249), the chapter discusses the relationship between mediated representation and political mobilisation/engagment.
