Abstract

This article analyzes the controversial interactions about the film Vazante and the play Gisberta, in which identitary groups related to black and transsexual people, respectively, criticized the way they were represented in those fictions. From the theory of recognition by Axel Honneth, it aims to understand the emergence of those forms of social struggle in media culture. This study analyzes the collective semantics and the way it expresses the feelings of injustice related to the narratives. The struggle highlights different claims, which refer to both the cultural inclusion and the autonomy of fiction and propose relations between narrative and society that challenge the current media criticism.
