»Kultur« – was ist das eigentlich? Alles, was in Museen zu sehen, in Konzertsälen zu hören ist? Nicht mehr als ein Konstrukt für das, was durch die öffentliche Hand gefördert wird? Oder einfach – alles? Christian Thies führt in seiner kritischen Bestandsaufnahme zum Kulturbegriff vier maßgebliche Debatten über vier Fragen an:1. Sind wir Menschen eher Kultur- als Naturwesen – oder sind wir sogar ganz Kultur?2. Gibt es überhaupt Kulturkreise?3. Ist Kultur Basis oder Überbau?4. Ist Pop Kultur? Im abschließenden Kapitel untersucht Thies die Rolle und die Möglichkeiten von Kulturkritik. Diese hilfreiche Zusammenfassung ermöglicht es jedem als Liebhaber oder professionell an Kultur Interessierten, sich über seine eigene Meinung klarer zu werden: Was denke ich selbst über »Kultur«? Wo befinde ich mich mit meinem Standpunkt in der Diskussion?

Why did jazz become a dominant popular music genre in the 1920s and rock 'n' roll in the 1950s? Why did heavy metal, punk rock and hiphop find their way from sub-cultures to the established music industry? What are the effects of new communication technologies and the Internet on the creation of music in the early 21st century? These and other questions are answered by Peter Tschmuck through an integrated model of creativity and innovation that is based on an international history of music industry since Thomas A. Edison invented the phonograph in 1877. Thus, the history of the music industry is described in full detail. By discussing the historic process of music production, distribution and reception the author highlights several revolutions in the music industry that were caused by the inference of aesthetic, technological, legal, economic, social and political processes of change. On the basis of an integrated model of creativity and innovation, an explanation is given on how the processes and structures of the present music industry will be altered by the ongoing digital revolution, which totally changed the value-added network of the production, dissemination and use of music. For the second edition, the author has reworked chapter 9 in order to include all the developments which shaped the music industry in the first decade of the 21st century – from Napster to cloud-based music services and even beyond.

The year "1968" marked the climax of protests that simultaneously captured most industrialized Western countries. The protesters challenged the institutions of Western democracies, confronting powerful, established parties and groups with an opposing force and public presence that negated traditional structures of institutional authority and criticized the basic assumptions of the post-war order. Exploring the effects the protest movement of 1968 had on the political, social, and symbolic order of the societies they called into question, this volume focuses on the consequences and echoes of 1968 from different perspectives, including history, sociology, and linguistics.

Psychoanalyst Meets Marina Abramovic

In the summer 2015, famous performance artist Marina Abramovic and psychanalyst Jeannette Fischer spent four days together at Abramovic's house in the Hudson Valley. Associating freely, they took a psychoanalytical perspective for a lengthy exploration of Abramovic's biography and art and their interrelation. ​Abramovic went into this discussion in hopes of reaching a better understanding of herself, her personality, and her work. Conversations with artists are widely available, she notes, but a chance to use psychoanalysis to put an artist's life and work in context is much rarer. The resulting book is neither a therapist's report nor a Fischer's analysis of Abramovic. Rather, it is a search for understanding conducted by the pair, looking for the structures and dynamics that underlie Abramovic's life and art. The dialogues are presented along with Fischer's comments on them and images of some of Abramovic's performances that are referred to in the discussion.
