Abstract:The purpose of this work is to research the (self)representation of women as a sociocultural and political phenomenon through the popular media in the ex-Yugoslav region from the 1990s to today (2023). The key research point will be Turbo-folk - the dominant musical expression of contemporary Serbian society. The construction of the ˝ideal woman˝ is seen in the early stages of the genre and can be defined through the observation of its first prominent representatives. The society‟s attitude towards women becomes apparent by analyzing popular media outlets, which had the establishment of gender roles as one of their imperatives, while at the same time scrutinizing female perfomers through sexist and obscene tabloid articles. Through careful research, it becomes evident that women are used as a tool for promoting a certain idealogy and gender-desirable behaviour through their media presence. Alternatively, the unbothered women of turbo-folk play along to secure personal capital but eventually re-invent themselves as self-sufficient women who resist the derogatory value system that the genre represents. Such instances are observed and analyzied with the goal of determining the position, role and influence of the genre‟s leading performers and dismantling the archetype of the ˝female singer˝. The encouraged gender-desirable behaviour, promoted through the ˝icons˝ of turbo folk will be studied and used in the construction of my graduation film protagonist.

Title:Idealna ženska: skozi glasbeni žanr turbo-folk v Srbiji in na območju bivše Jugoslavije
Abstract:Namen dela je raziskati (samo)opredelitev žensk kot družbeno-kulturni in politični fenomen skozi popularne medije na območju držav bivše Jugoslavije od leta 1990 do danes (2023). Ključni fenomen raziskave bo “Turbo-folk” – dominantni način glasbenega izražanja v sodobni srbski kulturi. Konstrukcija “idealne ženske” je zaznana v zgodnjih obdobjih ţanra in je lahko definirana skozi opazovanje prvih pomembnih predstavnic. Družbeni odnos do žensk je razviden iz analize popularnih medijev, ki so uveljavili vloge spolov kot obvezujoče s temeljitim preučevanjem umetnice ţenskega spola skozi seksistične in vulgarne članke rumenega tiska. Skozi natančno raziskavo je postalo jasno, da so ženske uporabljene kot predmet za promocijo določenega ideološko in spolno zaţelenega obnašanja skozi prisotnost v medijih. Hkrati pa sicer neobremenjene ženske turbo-folka vseeno sledijo temu vplivu, da bi zaščitile svoj osebni kapital, vendar se slej kot prej preobrazijo v samozadostne ženske, ki se upirajo zaničljivemu vrednostnemu sistemu, ki ga žanr predstavlja. Takšne primere opažam in analiziram z namenom določanja položaja, vloge in vpliva glavnih umetnic žanra - z namenom prikazovanja arhetipa “ženske pevke”. Obče spodbujano in spolno zaželeno obnašanje, promovirano skozi “ikone” turbo-folka, bodo raziskane in uporabljene v izdelavi protagonistke mojega zaključnega dela.
