Salafism and jihadism are an important focus of inner-German security discussions. The Salafi proselytizing is more successful than ever, and the jihad in Afghanistan or Syria pulls Islamists from Germany.This collection offers an examination of currently virulent phenomena of Salafism and jihadism from different perspectives. It is sometimes claimed that either Islam and violence or religion and terror go hand in hand; the authors of this volume aim to show that this is not so. Using the methods of social science to determine whether and under what conditions such a dangerous proximity comes about, this book offers insight into which actors are being looked for by extremists to exploit and to use as self-fulfilling prophecies.To this end, the authors develop innovative analytical concepts: Among other things, a process of co-radicalization and an attitude-based approach to the study of Salafist networks are described.The book makes an important contribution to the current debate by not presenting the potentially dangerous proximity of Islam and violence as a social fact, but describes it as a factor that can be influenced and understood.Salafismus und Dschihadismus stehen im Mittelpunkt innerdeutscher Sicherheitsdiskussionen. Die salafistische Missionierung ist erfolgreich wie nie zuvor, und der Dschihad in Afghanistan oder Syrien zieht die Islamisten aus Deutschland an. Der vorliegende Sammelband beleuchtet aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven die derzeit virulenten Phänomene des Salafismus und Dschihadismus. Weder soll damit plakativ eine Nähe von Islam und Gewalt, Religion und Terror behauptet noch eine solche pauschal geleugnet werden. Vielmehr wird mit sozialwissenschaftlichen Methoden erklärt, ob und unter welchen Bedingungen eine solche gefährliche Nähe zustande kommt, welche Akteure sie suchen, instrumentalisieren oder sie zur sich selbst erfüllenden Prophezeiung werden lassen. Zu diesem Zweck entwickeln die Autoren innovative Analysekonzepte: Unter anderem werden ein Prozess der Co-Radikalisierung und ein attitüdenbasierter Ansatz zur Untersuchung salafistischer Netzwerke beschrieben.Der Band leistet einen wichtigen Beitrag zur aktuellen Diskussion, indem er die gefährliche potentielle Nähe von Islam und Gewalt nicht etwa als soziales Faktum präsentiert, sondern als beeinflussbare Größe beschreibt und verständlich macht.

What The Fuck Is Heimat

In his prints, objects, and installations, Stefan Strumbel (b. 1979) overdraws the features of cultural products and cult objects from his native Black Forest by adding stylistic elements from Street and Pop art. He places cuckoo clocks, wooden masks worn during the local Carnival celebrations, or crucifixes in new and sometimes provocative contexts. For instance, he will supplant original elements of the cuckoo clock with motifs associated with violence, pornography, and death. The critical engagement with the idea of the "homeland" is a central theme in Strumbel's art. "Home" must here be read as a metaphor for experiences of socialization and the cornerstone of personal identity--an identity that, in a globalized and increasingly digital world, takes on an anachronistic aspect. Local tradition thus becomes a cultural construction; the cuckoo clock turns into an alien element and vehicle of the transference of individual identity. The aggressive defamiliarization of traditional attributes and the garish colors of Stefan Strumbel's works have proven widely popular. His objects are collected by Karl Lagerfeld, Frieder Burda, and others.
