Talk: The Injustice of Time – Why Schlager Music Only Became Cool When It Wasn’t Anymore

Track: Lifecycles of a Cultural Distinction
Date: Day 1 – 16:00
Location: Neufert-Mansion, Gelmeroda
Language: German

When you think of the past, Schlager music was already back then sheer horror. Music for musty basement party rooms. But if your are only listening to the singles, you are missing something. Something just below the surface. A world of Schlager music filled with diss tracks, dirty sex stories and subversive resistance to authorities. All that was Schlager and all that we gave up. For Helene Fischer. Is there a way back?
