German ,Sprechtheater‘ and the Transformation of Theatrical Public Spheres
Oberkrome, Friederike; Roth, Hans; Warstat, Matthias – 2019
This chapter examines Muslim domicide as a shared affective experience of home invasion, loss, and destruction among a transnational Muslim counterpublic. In such instances the home functions as a site for the intimate expression of state violence, particularly in counter-terrorist and counterinsurgency efforts. Specifically, this chapter traces the recurring image of domicide shared among Muslim social media networks, internet forums, and websites of community, charity, and non-governmental organizations as part of a wider understanding of the global ummah’s suffering. The circulation of images and stories of Muslim home destruction serve as scenes of affective identification among Muslims, generating a Muslim counter-public.
