Abstract

The editors of this slender volume on “cultures of German punk” assign Beyond No Future a significant task: with the emergence of a “subfield” of German punk, this collection hopes to bring together diverse voices while also directing scholarship towards future endeavors (10). In the introduction, they argue that punk can illuminate the “weirdness and tensions” of postwar Germany and in so doing, expose the contradictions and influences that the genre has had on the divided nation (3). The book is divided into three parts: part one on punk spaces; part two on punk politics; and part three on punk's relationship with fascism.
