Abstract [en]

Based on an ethnographic fieldwork on climbers this paper explores the relation between the group and the individual in the context of risk-performance. In the subculture of Bouldering (a kind of climbing) the performance of the single climber is dependent on the creativity and cooperation of the group with an ongoing negotiation between the participants. The paper focuses changing gender identities among young male climbers and challenges mainly the concept of "hegemonic masculinity" (Connell) with the help of "performativity" (Butler) and "experience-oriented" actions (Schulze).
