I am investigating the idea of the self-reflexive individual as part of constructing one’s identity, in this case, the cultural entrepreneur’s identity. I have studied Modernity and Self-Identity by Anthony Giddens
He describes modernity as full of uncertainties, choices and doubt in all aspect of everyday life; as existential. As internally contested. And that a person’s experience helps to develop expertise and authority but this is always potentially contested.
‘Modernity is a risk culture’
