Einleitung
Diese Arbeit befasst sich mit der Rezeptionsgeschichte von Peter Weiss‘ Werk „Die Ermittlung“. Dabei wird spezielles Augenmerk auf die Rolle der politischen Einstellung des Autors gelegt, da diese die Aufnahme des Dramas in der Öffentlichkeit maßgeblich beeinflusst hat. Insbesondere will ich auch auf die äußerst unterschiedlich ausgefallene Rezeption im gespaltenen Deutschland der sechziger Jahre eingehen. Zu diesem Zweck werde ich historische Quellen wie Zeitungs- und Rundfunkberichte heranziehen, die dank dem fortgeschrittenen Forschungsstand zugänglich sind. Um die vom Stück hervorgerufene Aufregung näher zu erklären, sollen ferner die zentralen Kritikpunkte dargestellt werden. Dass dieses Dokumentardrama nicht nur in Deutschland heftig diskutiert wurde, steht wohl außer Frage. In diesem Rahmen ist es jedoch nicht möglich, die Rezeptionsgeschichte in anderen Ländern zu skizzieren.
3. Konkrete Kritikpunkte an Weiss‘ Dokumentardrama
Weiss‘ politische Orientierung war nicht der einzige Faktor, der die Debatten um „Die Ermittlung“ derart brisant gestaltete. Das Drama war eines der ersten Werke, das die Gräueltaten, die in der Zeit des Nationalsozialismus und des Holocaust verübt wurden, explizit thematisierte. Zweifellos stellt „Die Ermittlung“ eines der wichtigsten den Aufarbeitungsprozess nach dem 2. Weltkrieg in Gange bringenden Werke und somit eine Zäsur in der deutschen Geschichtsschreibung dar. Laut Christoph Weiß trat die Ablehnung der Art und Weise, wie dieses hochgradig problematische Thema von Weiss bearbeitet wurde, jedoch erst nach den Erstinszenierungen ins Zentrum der Kritik, da die Diskussionen vor der Uraufführung mehr dem Dramatiker und seinem (zunächst mutmaßlichen) Bekenntnis zum Sozialismus als dem Werk selbst gegolten haben. Die nach der Erstaufführung entstandenen kritischen Debatten widmeten sich ernsthafteren Fragestellungen und…...

Es wurde am 13. März 1772 im Herzoglichen Opernhaus in Braunschweig durch Karl Theophil Döbbelin zum Anlass des Geburtstages der Herzogin Philippine Charlotte uraufgeführt. Lessing war bei der Uraufführung nicht anwesend und besuchte auch später keine der Wiederholungen.[1] Er verarbeitete in seiner Tragödie den Stoff der Legende um die Römerin Verginia, den er an zentralen Stellen allerdings entscheidend veränderte. Emilia Galotti ist ein Drama der Aufklärung, das dem damals vorherrschenden französischen Vorbild widerspricht und sich auch von der durch Johann Christoph Gottsched formulierten Regelpoetik absetzt. Obwohl die Liebe ein Zentralthema dieser Tragödie ist, gilt Emilia Galotti vor allem als politisches Stück. Der willkürliche Herrschaftsstil des......

Handwerksgestaltung Im Mittleren Osten

...Geschichte Antike Im Griechenland der klassischen Zeit war die Handwerkskunst (téchnai banausikaí, daher auch unser heutiges Wort „Banause“) insbesondere in den größeren Poleis nicht besonders hoch angesehen. So schrieb Xenophon in seinem Werk Oikonomikós (4, 2-3): „Denn gerade die so genannten handwerklichen Berufe sind verrufen und werden aus gutem Grund in den Städten besonders verachtet. Sie schädigen nämlich die Körper der Arbeiter und Aufseher, indem sie diese zwingen, zu sitzen und unter einem Dach zu arbeiten; manche nötigen sie sogar dazu, den ganzen Tag vor dem Feuer zuzubringen. Sind die Körper aber erst verweichlicht (wörtlich: verweiblicht, d.h. mit der hellen Hautfarbe der im Haus Tätigen), werden auch die Seelen anfälliger für Krankheiten. Auch gewähren die so genannten handwerklichen Berufe die geringste freie Zeit, sich noch um Freunde oder die Stadt zu kümmern, so dass solche Leute unbrauchbar zu sein scheinen für geselligen Umgang und zur Verteidigung des Vaterlandes. Folglich ist es in einigen Städten, besonders aber in denen, die als kriegstüchtig gelten, auch keinem Bürger erlaubt, in handwerklichen Berufen zu arbeiten.“ Seine Hauptargumente gegen das Handwerk sind die Tätigkeiten im Inneren einer Werkstatt, was er mit Tätigkeiten einer Frau innerhalb des Hauses gleichsetzt. Das Ausüben eines Handwerks disqualifiziert also den Handwerker für den Kriegsdienst; er kann also seine Polis nicht verteidigen. Außerdem bleibe nach Xenophon bei einem Handwerk......

Im/It Analysis

...IM/IT Analysis Patricia D. Barringer Strayer University Health Services Administration HSA 599 Dr. Kadrie Mountasser April 29, 2012 IM/IT Analysis The issue of public health and its subsequent impact on society as a whole is becoming a very contentious issues for government. In the midst of an election year, public health issues such as Medicare, social security, and disease prevention are all becoming more prevalent. In the state of New Jersey, public health is no different in this regard. According to U.S. Public Health Service, over the last century, the average life span of an America grew by 30 years. 25 of those years are attributed to an increase in public health services. As such, decisions make by governments on the federal, state, and local level will have a profound impact on the community. First, as is the case with many communities, state governments rely heavily on tax revenue as their primary source of income. In the midst of a global recession, those entities that rely heavily on income tax revenue ultimately suffer as those who provide the tax revenue are unemployed. Further compounding this issue is that fact that many individuals who were formally employed full time are now employed part time. As such, their taxable income is significantly diminished. With this diminished revenue, budgets must ultimately be cut to correspond to the reduced inflow of revenue. Now in regards to expenditures two-thirds of spending is for personal......

How Would a Director Interpret the Twentieth Scene of Peter Weiss’ the Marat/Sade ‘Monsieur de Sade Is Whipped’ in the Style of Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed?

...Research Investigation How would a director interpret the twentieth scene of Peter Weiss’ The Marat/Sade ‘Monsieur de Sade is whipped’ in the style of Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed? Word Count: 1521 (Excluding quotes and citations) James Hilditch Standard Level Theatre 2/5/13 In 1950s and 1960s Brazilian Augusto Boal developed a new brand of political theatre designed to liberate the oppressed people of the world. Boal was angered by the theatre’s, “top-to-bottom process: the writer delivering the sermon to otherwise ignorant spectators who therefore remained passive receptacles of somebody else’s view of the world” and looked to flip the paradigm through his “Theatre of the Oppressed”. The underlying concept of Theatre of the Oppressed is that “we can amend, adjust and alter our actions to have different impact and to change our world” . Boal felt that, “The spectators in the people’s theatre cannot go on being passive victims” and his workshops became a “practice revolution”. He encouraged his audiences present images of oppression, discuss how the issue would be solved, and then enact a “rebellion”. In most cases Boal used workshops to convey his message, as a result a director interpreting the Marat/Sade would act as a facilitator in encouraging the “spect-actors” , 3 to construct images of oppression and finally overcome it.

Jazz Im Totalitarismus

...Einführung: Im folgenden werde ich mich mit dem Musikgenre Jazz in der UDSSR befassen. Nach dem Versuch einer kurzen und nicht den Anspruch an Vollständigkeit nachkommenden Begriffsklärung, interessieren mich die Wurzeln des freiheitsliebenden Jazzes in einem Land, das unter der totalitären Umständen regiert wurde. Wie kam diese Musikart in die Sowjetunion? Wie wurde sie zu einem Erfolg? Wie erging es den Künstlern, den Komponisten des neuen genres. Am Beispiel des wohl bekanntesten dieser Generation Alexandre Tfasman und seinem musikalischen Lebenswerk, möchte ich diesen Fragestellungen näher kommen. Natürlich ist seine Person und sein Schaffen nicht unabhängig von seiner Herkunft und den kulturellen und politischen Einflüssen zu sehen. Daher werde ich nach einer Einführungen in die Anfänge der Musikrichtung Jazz, versuchen, die Usprünge des Jazz in der damaligen UDSSR zu beschreiben. Dabei kann eine historische Auseinandersetzung mit der Zeit 1920 bis 1945 nicht fehlen. In weiteren Ausführungen wird Tfasmans bezeichnender Einfluss auf das damalige Musikgeschehen deutlich. Der Jazzbegriff – was ist eigentlich Jazz? Jazz entstand im frühen 20ten Jahrhundert in den United States of America aus der Begegnung der afroamerikanischen Volksmusik (Blues, Worksong, Negro Spiritual) und der europäisch-amerikanischen Marsch-, Tanz- und Populärmusik. „Rhytmik, Phrasierungsweise und Tonbildung sowie Elemente der Blues-Harmonik entstammen der afrikanischen Musik und dem......

Peter Drucker

...Peter Drucker is generally regarded as the godfather of modern management. Drucker’s major contribution to management is not a single idea, but rather an entire body of work that has one massive advantage: virtually all of it is fundamentally right. The third question in “The Five Most Important Questions by Peter Drucker” is ‘What Does Your Customer Value?’ You cannot arrive at the right definition of results without significant input from your customers. (Drucker, 1998) What satisfies their needs, wants and aspirations is so complicated that it can only be answered by customers themselves. (Economy, 2013) There are no unfair customers, at least in terms of their own reality and situation. Customer needs are material and psychological well-being. Wants are when, where and how service is supplied. Aspirations are preferred long-term outcomes. What does the customer value, is the least often asked question yet it is most important to know. Providing value to the customers includes making products or delivering services that offer solutions to their problems. The better the solution is the more value that can be produced. (Kloeber, 2011) People are so convinced that they are doing the right things. Instead of asking ‘Does it deliver value to our customers?’ they ask, ‘Does it fit our rules?’ And that not only reduces performance but also destroys vision and dedication. Methods of understanding what customers value involve collecting or analyzing customer information,......

Peter the Great

...Peter the Great By: Sundeep Vaswani Pyotr Alexeevich, or Peter I the Great, was born on May 30, 1672 to Tsar Alexi the First and his second wife Natalya Kryillovna Naryshkina. He started out sharing ruling power with his half-brother Ivan, and gained full power to the throne when he was 24. Peter the Great was a good ruler because he tried to modernize, or westernize, Russia with his government, military and domestic reforms, even though some of these reforms stuck when he died. Peter thought that the government was in a dire need of reform. He tried to reform all aspects of the government, from local government, to the provincial government, all the way to the central government (Site 4, Paragraph 1). He first started with the local government. He tried to limit the power of the provincial government by letting the towns elect own officials, collect revenue and stimulate trade. The towns were governed by the elective board, which replaced the old system of sheriffs. (Site 4, paragraph 2). To improve the provincial government, Peter, in 1702, divided Russia into 8 guberniia, which was led by a gubanator, who had full power of his own guberniia and had to answer to Peter. Each guberniia was then broken down into districts called uzeda. By 1718, the number of guberniia increased to twelve and was broken down into forty uzedas. (Site 4, paragraph 3). When it came to the central government, he had a council, which was broken down in 40 departments. However, this system......

Peter the Great

...Peter the Great was one of the most famous czars in Russia, ruling from 1689 through 1725. Born in Moscow on June 9, 1672, Peter the Great was able to accomplish the incredible task of modernizing Russia. Due to his amazing talents, Russia was one of Europe’s leading countries during his reign. From wars to the multiple reforms he made, Peter the Great was able to successfully meet his primary goal: to expand and westernize Russia. Without him, Russia would have continued to be isolated and old-fashioned compared to the rest of Europe. Peter the Great’s interest in war was greatly beneficial to Russia. Through most of the wars that Peter was involved in, he was able to acquire and create features that helped Russia prosper. For example, from 1700 through 1721, Russia was involved in its first major European conflict, the Great Northern War. As a result, Peter the Great had to make multiple preparations. He needed troops for his army, this meant that all of the new soldiers had to be trained and armed. A fleet for the Baltic and Black Seas was necessary when looking for a victory. These ships needed Muscovites, who needed special training, to sail them. Once accomplished, Peter the Great was able to defeat Charles XII of Sweden in Ukraine. Through the Peace of Naystadt in 1721, he acquired the Baltic coastline. It was there that Peter planned to open warm water ports. These ports led to a growth in manufacturing through the companies created by the state (Jay 1). Then in......
