Der neue Geist des Kollektivs. Politische und ästhetische Implikationen kollektiver Produktionsverfahren im Theater in den 1960/70er-Jahren und zu Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts (am Beispiel der Schaubühne am Halleschen Ufer sowie She She Pop und Gob Squad)

Abstract : This thesis focuses on collective theatrical practices in Germany in the 1960s/70s and at the beginning of the 21st century. Our particular interest is the spirit of the collective: the political ideas and aesthetic concepts that encourage theatre people to work collectively and to organize themselves as collectives. We assume that the spirit of the collective has developed in parallel with the changes in the world of work since the late 1960s as described, for example, in Luc Boltanski and Eve Chiapello's publication The New Spirit of Capitalism. While in the 1960s/70s, collectives were unanimously perceived as the theatrical way of anticipating socialism, the current discourse about theatre collectives is marked by a heterogenization of positions. While some see them as the vanguard of the neoliberal deregulation of the German-speaking theatre landscape, others see in the collective functioning a new form of the Political. In the 1960s/70s as well as today, collective theatre work is linked to specific aesthetic strategies, which raise the question of the interdependence between the mode of production and aesthetics. This thesis seeks to link reflection on the organizational and production practices with the aesthetic concepts of the theatre collectives. Based on a discourse analysis methodology, the thesis brings out the spirit of the collective specific to the 1960s/70s on the one hand and to the beginning of the 21st century on the other hand. Divided into two main parts, it exposes the lines of continuity as well as the ruptures between the two generations of theatre collectives.
