This study explores the class origins of right-wing populism among the Czech working class and highlights the mobilising power of popular music in this context. My focus is on Ortel, a “nationalist rock” band active in the 2010s. Ortel purported to speak to “ordinary people” as opposed to elites, and its fan base still consists largely of working-c...

Der Beitrag widmet sich dem subkulturellen Antifaschismus in der postsozialistischen Tschechoslowakei und ihren Nachfolgestaaten. In diesen Kontexten war Antifaschismus vor allem eine Reaktion auf die Gewalt rassistischer Skinheads. Musikszenen, die hauptsächlich vom Punk- und Skinhead-Milieu ausgegingen, spielten eine Schlüsselrolle. Indem wir auf...

This study explores the musical sounds that link contemporary Vienna to the countries of the former Yugoslavia. For this purpose, I uncover a layer of South Slavic sounds in the Austrian capital and analyze two musical contributions to the city by migrants from this former socialist federation. I consider Vienna’s residents from the former Yugoslav...

This article aims to illuminate the links between culture and class in the post-socialist years in the Czech Republic. To this end, it considers the reception of two music acts—the country folk duo Bratři Nedvědi in the 1990s and the “nationalist rock” band Ortel in the 2010s—and discusses the labeling of their fans based on their social class prof...

In Eastern Europe, which is the focus of our study, different national scholarly traditions assigned their own place to the study of culture. Although the influence of the kulturologia (“culturology”) schools installed at Russian universities in the 1980s radiated out into Eastern European countries, local academic communities dictated the approach...

Evaluation of music by its listeners and fans is influenced by large social categories, such as age, gender, ethnicity, race, (dis)ability, socioeconomic profile, and social class. In the paper, the authors focus on the role that the complexity of cultural capital plays in the evaluation of music. In this respect, they follow Pierre Bourdieu, who c...

Article
Full-text available
With its roots in the political, economic and social changes of 1989/1990, the Czech antifascist movement was initially characterized by its young supporters, who came mostly from subcultural and anarchist circles. When violent far-right skinheads increased their attacks in the country between 1990 and 1992, local antifascists were the main group t...

The aim of this study is to provide a classification of geographical categories based on how they operate in the anti-globalisation activist press. The primary material for this study consists of two journals: Zdola (“From the B...

Although migration from Syria, Afghanistan and Sub-Saharan Africa had almost no impact on the Czech Republic in 2015, the general public in the country was highly receptive to the scenes that took place at migration bottlenecks in the Mediterranean region as well as at the border crossings in Greece, North Macedonia, Serbia, Hungary, Croatia, Slove...

In this chapter, I examine the phenomenon of “hardbass”, a distinct style of music and performance which takes place in public spaces, both physical and virtual, and has been produced and propagated mostly by people with links to far-right social movements in eastern, central-eastern and south-eastern Europe since the beginning of the 2010s. Hardba...

The research presented examines three different migration situations. The first scenario relates to the movement of refugees, the second to labour-related migration facilitated by Poland and the third to the cross-bord...

This study aims to begin to fill the relative gap in research into ecstatic practices in subcultural scenes. To this end, it focuses on two more hard-core groups of football supporters (ultras and hooligans) and two extreme music scenes (black metal and crust punk). Its research methodology relies mainly on participant observation. It considers the...

This article explores the critical question of how music videos portrayed the "new bour-geoisie" in early post-socialist music videos. Additionally, it tackles two side issues: the depiction of criminal groups and foreign countries. Unlike the "new class", post-socialist new bourgeoisie emerged as a class that was entirely economically defi ned by...

In this paper, I focus on Czech xenophobia in the period 1985-2015 and aim to interpret it from a comparative perspective. The key concept which I explore is class in post-socialist conditions (Michael Burawoy, Gil Eyal, Iván Szelényi). This work also builds on the debate on elitism and populism in post-socialist Europe (Michał Buchowski, Séan Hanl...

This monograph focuses on the activist and subcultural practices of late state socialism and post-socialism in the Czech areas of the former Czechoslovakia. These practices are presented in opposition to the privatized sphere of everyday life (Paulina Bren), which I describe as a kind of “new Biedermeier.” This work investigates these moments of su...

This book draws on wide range of inspirations to provide a well-balanced picture of the popular culture and subcultures of Czech post-socialism. What were the continuities and discontinuities of the post-socialist popular culture, mentalities and society during the period of late state socialism? What were the different mechanisms of creating the O...

Whereas the change of the political and economic environment was rapid and rather facile, the transmutation of the society - especially the shared values, beliefs and everyday practices, i.e. the mindset of individuals - was a rather slow and gradual process. This may be illustrated not only through the different strategies of public sphere privati...
