Bilder från det frivilliga våldets arenor: verklighet och representation i nya kampsporttävlingar

Liljefors, Max LU (2006)
Abstract
This essay reflects on the strive for realism and intensified experiences in contemporary forms of Mixed Martial Arts contests. It elaborates on the cultural meaning of violence and on the representation of violence in television versus the experience of real, bodily violence. The main theoretical tools are theories of culture, visuality, masculinity, and violence, developed by Roland Barthes, George L. Mosse, and Jacques Lacan.
