“OUCH, SPAIN!”: THE COMEDY OF IDENTITY AND THE TRAUMA OF INVISIBILITY IN DAGOLL DAGOM’S OH! ESPANYA

Catalan Review (2005), 19, (1), 221–241.

Abstract

This article explores the relationship between (in)visibility and politics as represented in Dagoll Dagom’s popular sitcom Oh! Espanya (1996). Drawing on Pierre Bourdieu, Hannah Arendt, and television studies, the author examines the ways in which the series comments on, and to a large degree contributes to maintain, the relations of domination and subordination between the Catalans and Spain at the level of representation and recognition.
