    Mut zur FreiheitYeonmi Park träumte nicht von der Freiheit, als sie im Alter von erst 13 Jahren an der Seite ihrer Mutter aus Nordkorea floh. Sie wusste nicht einmal, was Freiheit ist.

  • von Wilhelm Bode
    20,00 €

    Der röhrende Hirsch mit mächtigem Geweih beflügelte die Fantasien nicht nur von Adeligen, höheren Töchtern und Romantikern, sondern prangte als Bild an den Wänden so manches deutschen Kleinbürgers. Doch gerade sein Geweih als Symbol des potenten Herrschers machte ihn zugleich zum bemitleidenswerten Objekt der Jagdlust und zur tragischen Figur des Waldes. Wilhelm Bode, selbst einst ein passionierter Jäger aus Familientradition, schildert die wechselvolle Natur- und Kulturgeschichte des Hirsches. Er erzählt nicht nur von der Faszination für Bambi, der Bedeutung des Hirsches für Frida Kahlo und Joseph Beuys und von dem Auf und Ab der Jagdhistorie. Er beschreibt, wie ihn seine Begegnungen mit dem Hirsch allmählich von der Trophäenjagd abbrachten und zum überzeugten Gegner einer rücksichtslosen Jagdpraxis werden ließen, die nicht nach ihren Konsequenzen für den Naturraum fragt. So ist dieser Ausflug durch die heimische Kulturlandschaft nicht zuletzt ein engagiertes Plädoyer, die Jagd auf das stolze Wildtier in eine neue Beziehung des Respekts vor der Natur zu verwandeln.

    Was, wenn die primären Erfindungen der Menschheit nicht der Speer des Helden, sondern ein Korb mit wildem Hafer, ein Medizinbündel, eine Geschichte waren? In The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction (1986) entwirft Ursula K. Le Guin eine feministische Technologie­geschichte, die den kollektiven Lebensunter­halt ins Zentrum rückt und in den Tragebehält­nissen der Sammler*innen Werkzeuge für das Erzählen seltsam realistischer Fiktionen erkennt. Neue Texte und Bilder antworten auf Le Guins erzählerische Praxis des world-making durch Sammeln und Festhalten. --What if humanity's primary inven­tions were not the Hero's spear but rather a basket of wild oats, a medicine bundle, a story. Ursula K. Le Guin's 1986 essay The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction presents a feminist story of technology that centres on the collective sustenance of life, and reimagines the carrier bag as a tool for telling strangely realistic fictions. New writings and images respond to Le Guin's narrative practice of world­making through gathering and holding.

His friends, foes, and colleagues provide an unvarnished view of the passions, perfectionism, obsessions, artistry, devilry, and compulsion for control that shaped his approach to business and the innovative products that resulted.
