Jugend in Luxemburg – Nachgefragt

Jugend in Luxemburg – Nachgefragt

Jugend in Luxemburg – Nachgefragt

Wir wollten wissen, wie man in Luxemburg seit den 50er Jahren jung sein und erwachsen werden konnte. In Jahrzehnt-Schritten ausgelegt, haben wir Frauen und Männer nach ihren ganz persönlichen Erfahrungen und Erinnerungen befragt und berichten lassen, wie man in einem kleinen, früher wenig urbanen Land Jugend erleben konnte. Die Zeitschiene bietet Beispiele, die zum einen ganz lokal sind, zum anderen aber durchaus internationalen jugendkulturellen Entwicklungen entsprechen.

In unserer Auswahl, die so auch die Zusammenstellung der Bevölkerung widerspiegelt, finden sich verwurzelte Luxemburger, Kinder von Zuwanderern und Menschen, die nur wenige Jahre, ihre Jugend, in Luxemburg verbracht haben.

1950er 

Irène, 50ties

Irène

„Die 1950er Jahre waren auch in Luxembourg geprägt vom Wiederaufbau nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg und dem Beginn der Europäischen Einigung. Durch die Zollunion mit Belgien, der Europäischen Integration und den finanzplatzfreundlichen Gesetzen erlebte Luxemburg einen Aufschwung. Der Satellit Sputnik umkreiste ab 1957 die Erde und der Citroën DS wurde auf dem Pariser Automobilsalon vorgestellt. Peter Perleberg startete seine Moderationskarriere bei RTL und der Rock ’n’ Roll wurde zu einem Lebensgefühl und einer Jugend-Protestkultur. Irène aus Nagem und Joseph aus Useldingen berichten aus ihrer Jugend in den 1950er Jahren.”

„Der Vietnamkireg und die Friedensbewegung, Woodstock und die erste Mondlandung, Warschauer Pakt und die Ermordung John F. Kenndys. Die 1960er Jahre können durch viele Stichwörter illustriert aber nicht erzählt werden. Daher berichten uns Guy und Nicole aus Luxemburg-Stadt ihre persönlichen Jugenderfahrungen in den turbulenten Swinging Sixties.“

1970er 

„In der Geschichtswissenschaft gelten die 1970er Jahre  als eine Zeit von Krisen, Umbrüchen und Veränderungen – von den Ölkrisen bis zum Ende des langen Nachkriegsbooms. Die Watergate-Affäre erschütterte die USA und unter der Hippie-Bewegung vereinten sich neue soziale Bewegungen, Friedensbewegungen und die Anti-Atomkraft-Bewegung. Die Pate-Trilogie erscheint und musikalisch kreieren die Punks eine neue Stilrichtung. Wie Josiane und Raoul aus Schandel die 1970er erlebt haben, erzählen sie uns in ihren ganz persönlichen Erinnerungen.“

1980er

Marco

“Star Wars und Deep Purple, das Ende der Disco-Ära und der Anfang der Aufspaltung der Jugendkultur in verschiedene Szenen, wie Punk, New Wave oder Yuppies – die 1980er Jahre prägen viele Gesichter. Dan, Marco und Dany aus Sandweiler sowie Luc und Marta aus Luxemburg-Stadt berichten aus ihrer Jugend Ende der 1970er Jahre und in den 1980ern.”

1990er

“Kurt Cobain – Musiker, Philosoph und Idol einer ganzen Generation – begeht 1994 Selbstmord. Der Grunge bestimmte Anfang der 90er Jahre die Rockmusik. Nach seinem Tod erlebt der Eurodance, musikalisch gesehen der Gegenentwurf zum Grunge, seinen Siegeszug. Die Popliteratur erlebt ein Comeback und politisch bestimmt Jean-Claude Juncker ab 1995 als Premierminister die Geschicke des Landes. Chris aus dem Roeserbann und Manon aus Vichten erzählen aus ihrer Jugend in den 1990er Jahren.”

„Als eines der prägendsten Ereignisse der 2000er Jahre gelten die Terroranschläge am 11. September 2001 auf das World Trade Center und das Pentagon in den USA. Die Anschläge verursachten viele spätere politische, kulturelle und soziale Entwicklungen in der ganzen Welt. Die Nutzung digitaler Medien erreichte in diesem Jahrzehnt eine neue Qualität. iPhone, Facebook und Twitter sind die neuen Kommunikationsmedien und -kanäle der Jugend. Doch wie haben die Jugendlichen in Luxemburg die Nullerjahre “überstanden” und erlebt? Das berichten Joel aus Ettelbrück und Barbara aus Luxemburg Stadt.“

6. Reception, Acceptance and Sheltering of Refugees from Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 90s

6. Reception, Acceptance and Sheltering of Refugees from Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 90s

During the 90s war in the Balkans between 35 and 70 thousand refugees fled to Slovenia from the war areas, mainly Bosnia and Herzegovina. Slovenia provided them with basic care and enabled them survival away from the war zones, as dictated by international obligations and standards that Slovenia committed to. In the final broadcast of the Grundtvig project we have gathered the memories of Danijel Osmanagić and Anica Mikus Kos, president of the Slovenian Philanthropy, of how they remember the reception, acceptance and sheltering of until recently fellow citizens of Yugoslavia who became refugees in the 90s war turmoil in the Balkans. As the state of refugees in nowadays Europe is uncertain and the number of refugees is really high and seems uncontrollable in the eyes of European politicians, we have dedicated this broadcast to the memories of the past when giving basic care and enabling survival away from the war zones was possible for tens of thousands of refugees and that is in Slovenia only.

5. The Art of Nineties: Fragments

5. The Art of Nineties: Fragments

If we are looking back at the nineties art scene in Slovenia, we could conclude that nineties art scene operates in the shadows of the famous eighties which are now being institutionalized and even commodified. This is a problem on its own, that’s why there is a need to destabilize the image of the past. Best way to do so is to try to reconstruct the nineties art scene through protagonists` own memories. Some protagonists  even started to speak of nineties more and more in terms of second art explosion, first beign the sixties. The broadcast follows different lines of memories not to construct a whole image but to show some important and often contradictory historical events. That’s why we named the broadcast: Fragments. And that’s why the “art of the nineties” – following our method – could be read in two ways: as »oral memory of the art scene« (both institutional and especially non-institutional) in the nineties and as »nineties as an art project«, in other words as a period on which we still have to construct our memories about. We have spoken with many protagonists of Slovenian art scene in the early nineties and collected some specific fragments.

4. Thus we were reformed in the 90s: Student organisation of Slovenia

4. Thus we were reformed in the 90s: Student organisation of Slovenia

Slovenia and Yugoslavia have rich history of student movements and different political levels of institutionalized student organizations. In contrary to some previous institutions which were part of Yugoslavian political nomenclature and in contrary to student protests in sixties and seventies – wich were well archived and documented – transformation of socialist youth and student organization to so-called autonomous Student organization of Slovenia in the early nineties is almost forgotten and inadequately documented. There is no single serious study about this transformation, which affected students` politics to the point that – because of ineffective and corrupted student organization – most of the students` life became highly depoliticised. We try to unveil some memories of the most important years of this transformation with people who were responsible for institutional reformation of previous Yugoslavian youth and students organizations called »Republic Conference of Association of Socialistic Youth of Slovenia« and »University Conference of Association of Socialistic Youth of Slovenia«.

3. Thus was eaten in the 90s: When McDonald’s came, we didn’t even notice!

3. Thus was eaten in the 90s: When McDonald’s came, we didn’t even notice!

Third show focused on another forgotten and still non-archived memories of the micro-political transformations in the context of postsocialistic 90s: politics of food. For example: there are some serious cultural studies / analyses about nationalistic ideologies based around famous food called “burek”, but our show focused on another event: arrival of McDonald’s in Slovenia. We propose a hypothesis that arrival of first McDonald’s presents a crucial rupture in peoples` experiences of fastfood culture in Slovenia. But we were at the same time right and wrong: as collected memories show – for those who have experienced McDonald’s arrival, not much has changed, but for those who were born after it, it created the image that before McDonald’s there was nothing worth mentioning. Memories were collected from people of different age groups and from people with different “engagement” in the fast food culture in Slovenia.

2. Thus the 90s were heard: Emergence of rave culture in Slovenia

2. Thus the 90s were heard: Emergence of rave culture in Slovenia

In the context of music and pop-culture, we cannot think 90’s without thinking about rave movement. This is a specific challenge because of many reasons: the main archives were audio-cassetes, that are mostly totaly forgotten today. Rave-culture is mostly non-verbal: there are not many texts, not many manifests, not many articles about it. To make things even more complicated, journalists decided to concentrate only on the beginnings of the rave culture, on the years between 1990 and 1995, before the rave movement became a mass movement. We have spoken with the pioneers of the rave movement in Slovenia: DJ’s, promoters and organizers.
