Die globale Infrastruktur des pausenlosen Einkaufens, Arbeitens und Kommunizierens 24 Stunden am Tag und an sieben Tagen der Woche hält mittlerweile bereits die gesamte Menschheit wach. Antischlafmittel sind das neue Lifestyleprodukt, um dauerhaft leistungsfähig zu bleiben. Der Nachthimmel ist schon längst nicht mehr dunkel. Dabei blieb der Schlaf, während die anderen Grundbedürfnisse wie starvation, Durst und intercourse schon früh finanziell ausgeschlachtet wurden, lange Zeit der einzige nicht kontrollierbare Rückzugsort vor den
Zwängen des Kapitalismus. Noch vor hundert Jahren verbrachten die Menschen regelmäßig zehn Stunden schlafend. Der heute allgegenwärtige Schlafmangel ist Symptom eines beschleunigten Lebens, bei dem die persönlichen Gedanken und Gefühle an den Rand gedrängt werden. Ab ins Bett, schließt die Augen, fordert uns der Autor daher auf, damit wir uns in den Gefilden der Pause und der vermeintlichen Leere zumindest zwischendurch befreit fühlen können. Denn es ist die leere Zeit, die besonders kostbar ist.

ISBN-13: 9783658142810

Kerstin Fink untersucht Kunstkommunikation erstmals aus öffentlichkeitssoziologischer Perspektive. Im Zentrum steht die Frage, inwieweit die Kunstöffentlichkeit zur Perspektiverweiterung von politischer Öffentlichkeit beiträgt. Die Autorin zeichnet nach, dass die politische Öffentlichkeit historisch auf den institutionellen Plattformen der literarischen Öffentlichkeit errichtet wurde. Aber auch in der Kunstöffentlichkeit der Gegenwart spielt politische Kommunikation eine wichtige Rolle. Eine Inhaltsanalyse der Kunstberichterstattung der Leitmedien zeigt, dass die kritische Auseinandersetzung mit gesellschaftlichen Problemen in diesem discussion board fest verankert ist. Insgesamt ist in der Kunstberichterstattung eine Fortsetzung der politischen Kritik mit anderen Mitteln zu beobachten.
