Variations on the « Girl Culture » in Thea, Comic Strip Published in Das Heft. Die neue illustrierte Frauenzeitung (1929–31)

The thirst for life characteristic of the 1920’s combines itself with the general acceleration of urban life to favour the emergence of new models of feminity in keeping with the conquest of the public space by a new generation, that of the « Girl ». The diverse manifestations of « Girl culture » give rise to multiple mediations and cultural transfers. A close reading of Thea, a comic strip designed by Chic Young and adapted into German by Richard Hutter, shows how signs of modernity are overturned and instrumentalised for the purpose of (re)domesticating women. Furthermore, the comic strip lends itself to questioning the effects of a media overexposure that favours the rise of an antifeminist ideology and the emergence of the essentialist model of the « German Woman ».
