  • Download Bibliodiversität: Manifest für unabhängiges Publizieren by Susan Hawthorne,Doris Hermanns PDF

    By Susan Hawthorne,Doris Hermanns

    Aus dem Englischen übersetzt und mit einem Nachwort versehen von Doris Hermanns

    Der Begriff Bibliodiversität, den Susan Hawthorne in ihrem Buch erklärt, bezeichnet die kulturelle Vielfalt innerhalb des Verlagswesens – und begründet, warum es unabhängige Buchhandlungen und Verlage braucht. Ihr Begriff ist inspiriert vom strukturell verwandten Begriff der Biodiversität. Wie diese unverzichtbar für das gesunde Funktionieren eines Öksystems ist, ist die Bibliodiversität ein Indikator für ein funktionierendes Buchwesen. Verlage und Buchhandlungen sind hierbei vergleichbar mit den Bewohnerinnen und Bewohnern eines Ökosystems.

    Hawthorne kritisiert, dass Großverlage und Großbuchhandlungen ihren Fokus allein auf hohe Auflagen und Verkaufszahlen legen, weshalb die Bibliodiversität aus dem Gleichgewicht gerate. Gerade Bücher von und über Minderheiten sowie Werke aus kleineren Sprachgemeinschaften oder anspruchsvolle literarische Texte finden so keine Verbreitung mehr.

    Das aber führt letztlich dazu, dass die kulturelle Vielfalt schwindet. Bibliodiversität bietet dagegen eine stolze Selbstdefinition für unabhängige Buchhandlungen und Verlage. Denn diese sind es, die die kulturelle Vielfalt abbilden – und somit erhalten.

  • Download Die Konsumgesellschaft: Ihre Mythen, ihre Strukturen by Jean Baudrillard PDF

    By Jean Baudrillard

    Konsum ist längst mehr als nur ein Anhängsel der Produktion. Vielmehr ist er ein universales Zeichensystem geworden, in dem hedonistische Konsumwünsche und moralische Konsumkritik nebeneinander koexistieren. Insofern integriert Konsum die Gesellschaft und dient ihr zugleich als Spiegelbild, und er ist für die Einzelnen das ideale Medium der Selbst(er)findung. Für Baudrillard konstituiert und charakterisiert der Konsum deshalb die Kultur unserer Gesellschaft; er ist „eine Ordnung von Bedeutungen wie die Sprache oder wie das Verwandtschaftssystem in der primitiven Gesellschaft“.

    „Die Konsumgesellschaft“ ist ein zentrales, im deutschen Sprachraum bisher kaum beachtetes Werk von Jean Baudrillard in deutscher Erstübersetzung.
