technotribe subculture

The TAZ carries an article on anthropologist Anna Schöne, who does Ph.D.-level fieldwork on Berlin’s techno[music]-scene. This statement of hers caught my eye: “Das Spezifische an der Subkultur ist, dass sie das, was unsere Kultur ausmacht, bewusst macht, ausdrückt und in Begriffe und einen Stil bringt.” Crudely translated: Subcultures make aware what a given culture is composed of, mould it into concepts and styles—that is the specific aspect of subcultures. In a way this is true for the culture of gamemodding, too.
