Abstract [en]

This research explores how entrepreneurship interacts with feministic political commitments and praxis. It shows that this interaction is intimately shaped by its spatial setting, in this case Möllevången in the city of Malmö, Sweden. For a long time, the independent comics industry in Sweden has had men in leading positions and the medium has had masculinist connotations. My thesis shows that for women and transgender persons working in such a male-dominated industry, networking and collaborating are crucial for succeeding and staying in business. The particular network studied here is Dotterbolaget, a women and transgender separatist comic’s network based in Malmö.

Dotterbolaget practices a feministic approach. The thesis analyses firstly its work practices and secondly the motives animating their adoption. Avoiding competition and promoting collaboration are important factors. So too is finding a means of motivation other than monetary, such as having fun and creating a professional environment for one another. The analysis also considers the spatial setting of the network, showing the deep significance of physical place. Finally, the non-hierarchal form of the network is considered. What does it mean to work as a comic’s artist without hierarchies in an individualised society? What tensions and strengths does such an organisational form give rise to?

Abstract [es]

Esta investigación explora cómo el espíritu empresarial interactúa con los compromisos y prácticas políticas feministas, mostrando que esta interacción está íntimamente configurada por su entorno espacial, en este caso el barrio de Möllevången en la ciudad de Malmö, Suecia.

Durante mucho tiempo, la industria de cómics independientes en Suecia ha tenido hombres en posiciones de liderazgo dándole a este medio connotaciones masculinas. Mi tesis muestra que para las mujeres y personas transgénero que trabajan en una industria tan dominada por los hombres, la comunicación a través de las redes sociales y la colaboración son cruciales para tener éxito y mantenerse vigentes. La red específica de artistas (dibujantes) aquí estudiada es Dotterbolaget, una red de cómic separatista de mujeres y transexuales con base en Malmö.

Dotterbolaget practica un enfoque feminista. La tesis analiza, en primer lugar, sus prácticas de trabajo y, en segundo lugar, las razones que motivan su adopción. Evitar la competencia y promover la colaboración son factores importantes. Así también lo es el encontrar una forma de motivación que no sea monetaria, tal como divertirse y crear un entorno profesional para otras personas. El análisis también considera la ubicación espacial de la red, mostrando el profundo significado del lugar específico. Finalmente, se considera la forma no jerárquica de la red. ¿Qué significa trabajar como un artista de cómic sin jerarquías en una sociedad individualista? ¿A qué tensiones y fortalezas da lugar tal forma de organización?
