Der Geschmack der Gentrifizierung

Author: Miriam Stock
Publisher: transcript Verlag
ISBN: 9783839425213
Release Date: 2014-03
Genre: Social Science

Arabische Imbisse haben von Beginn an die Gentrifizierung in Berliner Vierteln wie Kreuzberg, Prenzlauer Berg und Friedrichshain mitgeprägt. Von dieser ethnischen Gastronomie ausgehend untersucht Miriam Stock die Konstruktion dortiger Geschmackslandschaften. Sie beleuchtet sowohl die kreativen Praktiken und Verortungen der migrantischen Imbissbetreiber als auch die Dispositionen der neubürgerlichen Konsumenten, die in ihrem Streben nach kultureller Hegemonie auf Authentizitätsinszenierungen bedacht sind. Mittels subtiler und strenger Beobachtung des Alltäglichen entsteht so eine Zeitdiagnose über die feinen Mechaniken der Distinktion im spätmodernen Kapitalismus.
