Pinar Tuzcu explores rapper Lady Bitch Ray's performance, particularly her use of the term "Kanackin." She searches for the elusive relationship between pop feminism in Germany and histories of migration. Tuzcu works through the contradictory forms of positioning that occur in group discussions with Turkish-German university students about Lady Bitch Ray's music videos by means of decolonial methodologies and situational analysis. From a transcultural angle, Tuzcu argues that these contradictory forms of positioning bear traces of emergent discourses that reach beyond Western-centric descriptions of feminism in Germany.
